Costa Rica: Conservative Christian Candidate Leading in Presidential Election Polls
A conservative Christian congressman best known for his opposition to gay rights remains the favorite in Costa Rica's presidential election next month, according to a poll released Tuesday night.
Fabricio Alvarado, a 43-year-old ex-television host and the only lawmaker from the evangelical National Restoration party, led in several run-off scenarios in the Jan. 29-30 survey conducted by OPol Consultores.
The candidate even has a handful of Christian music albums to his name.
I do indeed pray that this relatively peaceful Central American Latin country of Costa Rica, (mindful of problems of military coups in other Latin American countries, only allowing for a civilian police force and customs service, all military forces are banned by the Constitution in Costa Rica, so there is no Army, Air Force or Navy in this country), that the evangelical Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ will have full freedom to be proclaimed, that Evangelical churches will have full freedom of worship, discipleship and evangelism, and that Costa Rica will reject the PC pressure, already yielded to by some Latin American countries to accept the LGBT, Transgender, abortion, euthanasia and "climate change/ global warming / environmentalist" myth revolutions, which are being forced on these countries by the USA and other Western countries, and also the very dangerous Islamic influx, as I have heard that there is a growing number of Latin American converts to Islam.
I really pray that it may indeed be possible for this evangelical, if it is God's sovereign will, to become the next President of this relatively stable Latin American country of Costa Rica.
As representative, he has maintained conservatives stances regarding social issues, opposing things like the legalization of marijuana, same-sex unions, abortion, in-vitro fertilization and what he calls "ideology of gender."
