Desecration of Temple Must Be Condemned

Wednesday, April 19, 2017

I wish to strongly condemn the vandalisation of the Temple in the Sea. This is not the first time this has occurred. There should be no manpower issues with respect to providing security. Politics even affects the house of God.

Religious conflict is something our country can ill afford at this present time, believe you me. When people have no respect for others place of worship it is a sad day. Are we aware of the history of this temple?

Do we know of all the struggles than had to be endured prior to its construction?

This is not about Hindu, Muslim or Christian, no church, temple or mosque should ever be subjected to this desecration. You hear me? None! IRO where are you now? Speak up loudly now or shut up in future. Your function is not only to attend parties and consume fruit punch.

Who would even contemplate performing such a nefarious act? We need to be protected from ourselves.

​I am a Roman Catholic.
