EDITOR, The Tribune.
Why on earth does The Bahamas Christian Council think that they need a building for themselves, and why more serious does this new Government think the BCC should be granted Crown property?
Firstly, the BCC does not allow any Church group, who are subject to external Administration or governance, which therefore excludes the Anglicans, Roman Catholics, certainly a few of the Baptist Faiths and others. Prime Minister probably more than 50% of practising Christians.
When last did you ever hear of an Anglican or a Roman Catholic cleric was Head of the BCC? Never and it will never happen, although together they are the largest denominations. Each small Baptist Church has a vote equal to the one of the Anglicans and one of the Roman Catholics.
Prime Minister no to granting the BCC some Crown property. They better concentrate on feeding and converting, rather than building palaces!
Lastly, does the BCC have the approval of the full membership? Their Constitution requires of them to advise when and if any denomination, a member of BCC, disagrees with any policy decision of the BCC. Who agrees with this worthless project?
No land for the BCC!
