When the Bahamas Christian Council speaks on an issue who exactly do they talk for?
The BBC has been dominated forever by Baptist Revs I don’t think ever has there been an Anglican or Catholic or Methodist leader of the BBC - let’s call it spades - when they talk do they talk for the traditional denominations and if not, why doesn’t the leadership of those traditional well established churches issue a statement?
For years now the Catholic leadership has been quiet on every issue as if they have no concern - rarely do you hear from the Methodists and Anglicans, but the Baptists - Evangelistics and Pentecostals they make controversial statements on everything – do the Catholics-Anglicans agree?.
Politics and Church? I find it totally unacceptable that politicians feel they have a right to go into the temple-church of God and presume they can make a “political” statement as if because the statement is ushered from there it is god-like? In church the Prime Minister and his merry men and lady of Cabinet are as equal as the pauper and the sinner - the Church leaders should insist the politicians stay in the pews - that’s their place they go to church I presume for more than political reasons, or is that why? Listen and gain and be educated. 50% of any church congregation are not your supporters that’s a given. In the pews, sir, the Most Honourable Prime Minister be humble. Curious, as a Catholic, Mr Minnis you seem to stay away from your churches wonder – why?
