Religious Confusion vs. Spiritual Simplicity - Awakening Within - Jun 24, 2007 - 5:45:59 PM
darvilletj.JPG
Today, man / woman has fashioned God in their own image. God has become a fabrication of all the negative attributes and qualities of human condition.   Incorporated in the human God are the sentiments of hatred, prejudice, condemnation, anger and revenge. The sum total of these traits create the wars, rumors of wars, abuse of the vulnerable, rape of innocent children, brutal murders, and general violation of the rights of the born and unborn.   Yet in the midst of all this we still proclaim our religiosity and hold fast to the belief that we are indeed carrying out the wishes of the Divine...

Who is the architect of our heritage? - Jun 15, 2007 - 3:18:06 PM

In the original developmental plans of Freeport, with the exception of schools, little or nothing was designed to deal with the social, psychological and communal enhancement of our people, and especially the young.   Neither were these amenities forthcoming fast enough as the city expanded economically.   Consequently, many Freeport residents, native Bahamians, still exhibit the posture of tourists or itinerant salesmen in their own land.

The rights of the unborn: Who protects them? - Apr 11, 2007 - 3:54:59 PM
JosephColumn_2.JPG
On November 20, 1979, the late Bishop Paul Leonard Hagerty of the Catholic Diocese in the Bahamas in a pastoral letter spoke the following prophetic words: “I would be truly derelict in my duty as a Roman Catholic Bishop of the Bahamas if I did not remind all Catholics of what is to us a self-evident fact, namely, that a nation which destroys its own most helpless and defenseless citizens can claim no protection from acts of violence and terrorism from other irresponsible sources...
