The recent controversy surrounding the former Miss Teen Bahamas' revelation that she was a lesbian has infuriated youth leaders throughout Grand Bahama, prompting them to launch a full-scale attack against anti-social behaviour among our nation's teens.

Leading the charge is St. John's Jubilee Cathedral's Youth Pastor Winslow Johnson, who said it is their responsibility as Christians to take a stand and bring back the moral and spiritual standards of our land.

At a press conference earlier this week, Pastor Johnson, along with two other youth leaders Pastor Valentine Johnson and Pastor Duree Thomas spoke out against the former teen queen's open confession, noting that she was sending the wrong message to today's youth.

As a result, "Operation Take Over" was introduced to combat the negative influences plaguing young people.

Operation Take Over consists of a prayer rally and march that will allow churches and young people throughout Grand Bahama to get together under the theme of "Take a Stand."

The prayer rally is slated for 7:30 tonight at St. Johns' Jubilee Cathedral and on Saturday at 8:00 a.m. the youth march will commence from the Winn Dixie parking lot downtown.

Pastor Johnson explained that gay, lesbian and bisexuals in the community need to know that they in no way shape or form represent the majority of Bahamian young people and certainly not the teens.

"We are in total disagreement with her boldness to claim that she represents the Christian youth, young adults or leaders of Grand Bahama," Pastor Johnson said.

Noting that a role model should be more than just smart and able to win a pageant, he added, "It is someone who stands strong on the principles of God and adheres to Christian standards."

Pastor Valentine said that they are not attacking the young lady, but rather her words, adding that she made a declaration that she represented all of our teens.

"The Bible says the power is in the tongue and we will have what we speak... We cannot allow or afford what she has spoken to open a door way in the lives of our young people to stir up spirits of perversion that were not designed for them," he said.

He said she is only flesh and blood but our battle is not with flesh and blood.

"We fight the words that she has declared and spoken into the atmosphere, over this region and into the lives of our young people," he said. "With 'Operation Take Over' and the power of God, we will make every word she spoke null and void."
