Open Letter to the Religious Community

Submitted by BARBADOS INTEGRITY MOVEMENT (BIM)

It is with utmost humility that I write as the Political Leader of the Barbados Integrity Movement (BIM) and more importantly as Christian Believer to engage All Leaders in the Religious community together with their Congregants across the length and breadth of Barbados to stand up and be counted in this season of great distress and uncertainty for our people and country as a whole.

BIM recognizes that our beloved country is today facing the worse financial crisis in its history aided by what appears to be a severe lack of decisive management and a patriotic vision. Our National Anthem states that “God has been the people’s guide for past 300 years” but several of our current parliamentary leaders in themselves exude behaviors as though there is no respect for the “Almighty God” as is frequently demonstrated in their speech and actions. It is BIM’s goal therefore

    I still have a big problem with those lyrics in our National Anthem which you have quoted, about the Lord being the people’s guide for the past 300 years, when for more than half of that period , the ancestors of 95 % of us Barbadians were enslaved and considered lower in status to the precious Kentucky Mules and big breed Great House hounds. Looks like that part,and some others of the National Anthem could be sung with gusto, by the Williams’ Mayers, Challenors, Sealy’s, Piles and Goddards et al.

    A great majority of the worshipers in the mainline churches, Anglican, Moravian,etc are over 59 years of age, and quite a few are wheel chair bound and are supported by walking sticks,etc.

    I have heard Grenville II and Lynette and well I was and am not impressed.

    I would then query the length of a letter to the Religious Community that is 3 pages of rambling rose.

    BNTCL needed verbosity but this outreach to the Church, irrespective of its tentacles, it is not properly composed.

    Go through it and pick out the sentences that say “who, what, where why when and how” (de way mottley does construct all of her speeches using those words and that format dat meks people tink she brilliant.

    Can you find this easily?

And Mr Smith told Mr Jones that he was wrong to do so and the Bible says stealing is wrong. Mr Jones would usually justify the theft of the sugar cane by replying that the SCP had plenty of sugar canes and it would not miss one or two sugar canes.

    @ BIM

    Seeking “to deploy spiritual principals as its mandate for managing the affairs of the country and will advance every cause to work with the church to address the ills currently plaguing us as a people,” may be a “step” in the right direction, especially if one adheres to Christian values.

    However, you must take into CONSIDERATION and RESPECT the fact Barbados is a democracy and there are also many Barbadians who DO NOT BELIEVE in any religious sect. As such, they may interpret BIM’s suggestion as essentially promoting a dictatorship based specifically on YOUR religious beliefs, while trying to FORCE Christianity on them.

    Additionally, as it relates to your comment re: “Barbados was once known to produce the very best academic minds which were privy to have graced some of the most hallowed halls throughout the world.” “These persons were shaped in the dynamic of the understanding of the word of God and social responsibility (Love of Country and Fellowman) whilst in the pursuit of academic accomplishment.”

    You must bear in mind the education system has created a generation of “THINKERS” who are not prepared to READILY ACCEPT religion, WITHOUT QUESTION, as was done years ago by the older generation. Perhaps rather than blame society, you should ask where has the church gone wrong.

    Religion has undergone significant, dynamic changes as seen with religious men/women self appointing themselves as “prophet, apostle, bishop” and acquiring academic qualifications such as doctorates. The “meeting hall” has been replaced by multi-million dollar “mega churches” outfitted with the latest technology and equipment. Sermons of the “prosperity gospel” are now being preached, while encouraging the congregation, through fear, to tithe in hope of receiving riches.

    Prophet Apostle Senator Dr. David Durant, Errington Massiah, Guy Hewitt and Joseph Atherley are examples of reverends involved in politics.

    Recall a few years ago the goodly Durant told Barbadians Thompson would not die under his watch, as was spoken to him by God. We subsequently had to refer to Thompson as “the late prime minister.” Durant has also demonstrated that, for the past 9 years, he is prepared to place party ahead of Christianity, by going into the Senate to endorse lies told by his fellow politicians.

    Prior to the 2013 elections, PM Stuart told Barbadians the state would continue to fund tertiary level education and there would not be any retrenchment of public sector employees, which was endorsed by Durant, Hewitt and Massiah. However, a few months after the elections, there was a reversal of Stuart’s “promises” and Durant went to the Senate to endorse and justify those untruths.

    Ironically, DLP members David Estwick and Donville Inniss have been repeatedly making comments criticizing the “wrongs” committed by their party. DLP Senator Dr. David Durant remains silent.

    Under such circumstances, BIM will have a “hard job” trying to convince the skeptics and unbelievers.

  • The only real problem with BIM’s letter is that it is addressed to a useless church that has long been compromised with brass bowlery.

    It is clearly too much to expect that BU regulars would appreciate any message that speaks to putting RIGHTEOUSNESS as a national priority, since most here are fully converted to the albino-centric dogma of materialism and self-centredness.

    The FACTS are, however, that we live in a spiritual realm, where laws that very few here understand, drive reality. Any move therefore, that seeks to respect and synchronise with these spiritual realities DESERVES serious consideration….. ESPECIALLY in an environment where NOTHING seems to be working according to the albino-centric methodology.

    BIM is therefore on a sound track to look BEYOND the materialistic greed that drives us brass bowls, but Bushie suspects that like all wisdom at this time, they are casting pearls at brass bowl swine.
    Of course it escapes us all that, as pointed out in the letter, back when our ‘ignorant’ parents respected such spiritual principles, we were seen to be ‘punching above our weight class’….. while now that we have PhDs coming out of our donkeys, we ain’t saying shiite….

    You should really stick with those things that you understand …or where your broom can take you. There is EVERY reason why politics and religion should be intertwined…. not least of which, is that the REALLY important rules that drive success in this world are SPIRITUAL in nature.
    The way that we organise our society, therefore should be grounded in concepts that RESPECT these spiritual realities.

    The FACT that the current church leaders are a bunch of brass bowl idiots and albino-centric mendicants only speaks to the TOTAL breakdown of national perspective. The albino-centric shiite has overtaken EVERYTHING… including the church. This however, DOES NOT take away from the VITAL importance of the country having sound spiritual GROUNDINGS. We will NEVER move in that direction by the stupid logic of throwing away BOTH the baby and the nasty, albino-centric, bathwater.
    …..ya mean we do not possess the collective intelligence to identify a baby from stinking shiite-water and to separate the two…?

    Artax is saying that since he can actually smell the nasty water, and see bits of poop in it, then every thing has to go….Baby and all…

    BIM is right. But it is not the ‘church’ that needs to be called out, but those (few?) remaining Bajans who appreciate the damn baby, and who can be convinced to pour off the shiite water and replace it with clean, scented, sterilised warm water.
    Of course to do this we may have to first clean up the baby with disinfectant (lock up some of the ff’ers, embarrass the many compliant thieving supporters, and SEEK OUT AND RECRUIT true talents to lead…)…… Sackcloth and ashes…!!!
    After this cleansing, you can be assured that the damn baby would start growing up in a healthy, productive way – and the shiite place would again learn to punch above its weight class.

    The alternative is to continue on the path to Hell….worshiping the trident at the Garrison.

    Our relationship with the Christian Church, and with the Abrahamic/Christian/Islamic/Rasta God will forever be conflicted, especially as according to the writings that same God didn’t seem to like black people or women very much., and if you were/are both black and female he had/has no use for you at all.

    If your premise is wrong, then you conclusion is bound to be wrong.

    If you start looking back in Barbados’s history for a morally superior place you won’t find it and you are bound therefore to reach the wrong conclusion.

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    Boss, generations of experts have tried to unravel a myriad of complexities of life, and yet today, few (you probably included) have any IDEA of what the true purpose and meaning of life is….

    Spirituality is the underlying REALITY of existence….. It is what REALLY IS!!!
    Within that realm, exists a much more limited space -which we call ‘life on Earth’. That limited space is defined by a time-bound, material, entropy-cursed, set of rules and regulations which CLEARLY shout out that it was specifically designed to accomplish a particular objective, within a specified timeframe.

    “Spirituality” is therefore a view of existence that goes BEYOND the obvious physical constraints that we can naturally sense, and which seeks to interact with the much broader underlying bedrock of reality.

    Case in point:
    The natural instinct of our materialistic world is to selfishly grab as much as we can from whomever we can, and at whatever cost to others that may be incurred.

    A more spiritual (and diametrically opposite) instinct would be to seek to enhance the COLLECTIVE good by sharing whatever we have, with those who have less that we do, in the aim of advancing the general social wellbeing of everyone.

    We can (and currently do) base our politics on the former, instinctive, albino-centric greed and selfishness by operating a “we and them” political divide; by encouraging and expanding a situation where the rich get richer, while the poor get poorer; (and we add these up together and divide to get a ‘mean’, which we then falsely use to measure “national wealth”.

    Pray tell Bushie why it would be ‘criminal’ to put in place a POLITICAL system whose philosophical moorings was based on co-operatively building up the COLLECTIVE social development ….rather than the failed shiite which we currently pursue?

    Bushie could also look at Justice, Health, Education etc …to show that the benefits of adopting a SPIRITUAL foundation for our politics, rather than the natural instincts of brass bowls (even well-meaning, but clueless ones like Vincent) makes much more sense than following the ways of those albino-centric countries whose predisposition to jungle-like cut-throat survival is many times more developed than Black Bajan Brass Bowls…(BBBBs)…. and who, even so, are ALSO well on their way to catastrophic failure themselves….

Therefore, the conclusions reached when making moral comparisons with a past and present Barbados will vary from person to person.

    “Spirituality” is therefore a view of existence that goes BEYOND the obvious physical constraints that we can naturally sense, and which seeks to interact with the much broader underlying bedrock of reality.”

    This is the reality which escapes these earth bound priests, reverends, churches, politicians, it is way beyond and above their irrational thoughts and centuries of brainwash….they will not understand any of it in this lifetime and maybe npt even the next, it will move likely take another 3 generations, 75 years, before all that shit is washed out of their heads and that’s only providing another more destructive slave like system complete with an even more deceptive and equally contradicting bible is not created for their weak, willing and accepting minds.

    Unfortunately, you are perfectly correct.
    HOWEVER, Bushie only has a whacker. So the TRUTH have to be put out there …even if it falls by the wayside and dies for lack of nurture.

    Even if the good grass is scarce, weak, struggling and feeble, The whacker gotta whack…
    Yuh cannot leave the damn wicked weeds in peace ..else yuh will end up with a forest …complete with cow-itch, snakes, and all kinda shiite plimplers…

    LOL
    Right now all we gotta worry about is a couple AC slugs and the occasional Boremann effort, which a whacker can handle. But if we allow things to get out of hand, then we may need a bobcat …or even a D9 caterpillar, to deal with the muck.

    So even if NO ONE gets it, Bushie will be throwing those seeds out there that CAN produce the fruit which we all really want.
    BUP was the first casualty – killed by inertia and general brass bowlery from Caswell, so if this BIM ‘bam’ don’t catch root, it wont be for lack of Bushie’s sowing….. 🙂

    @ Bush Tea

    I am a likkle hesitant with these Christian tings cause I too know the fellers like Durant who have sold out to Mammon rather not sold out, for such presupposes that he was on the side of the Living GOD before.

    Having said that, because of what you have said I have some pause in my spirit.

    I heah sitting down wid de Glocks pun me lap waiting CAUSE DEM GOING COME.

    Here is some advice to B.I.M as it relates to “Voter Management”.

    A lot of what I will be saying is just plain common sense but in Brassbowl Land or Barbados, common sense is not so common

    You need to know your boxes, like Artaxerxes who was able to quote the results from the G.E’s for the last 3-4 years for Danny Gill, you have to have that information at your fingertips.

    Getting that information, AND MORE IMPORTANTLY, having it verified in what is just short of a year, is a significant task because it means that you either

    (a) have the information illegally from the Census Department as the DLP has (the BLP too) or

    (b) you have the augmented list from the Barbados Water Authority that was collected under the guise of improving the Water Meter Services.

    Dem (BWA and the DLP) must be tink dat we foolish when they come and ask (i) who the house belong to and (ii) how many people in the house (iii) and what is dem name and age and salary (iv) and who is the cat father.

    Anyways, you need to get this information so that you are on a level playing field with dem fellers who using government confidential information illegally

    What all of you need is atomic “House Occupant” information i.e. Name, DOB, Sex, Address, Eligibility information, Constituency where they are to Vote, etc. (other info as well but this part is critical)

    The more critical issue is how you are going to get it rapidly.

    Neither Mugabe, nor David Estwick, nor Pigrim, is going to give it to you but if all of wunna Third Parties agree to “collaborate on a specific structured mobilization” this will do a few things.

    (a).All uh wunna got to start pulling together from NOW and stop this territorial shite hound foolishness BECAUSE THAT WILL WEAKEN YOU ALL.

    The face that you show the public must be one of UNITY, when any one of you third party denizens win, you are breaking the DLP/BLP duopoly

    (b).The “collaboration” for this purpose will be finite. Let de ole man explain dat word finite.

    While you all work and collate a central database, with all of the names like the BLP and the DLP have, what you will NOT DO is to share your intimate voter details.

    So, if you in the course of your mini-censii, learn that Jane Doe has a medical condition you WILL NOT share it with the other political party since that is your “People Centric Profile”.

    (c).The mere fact that wunna bring wunna selves together for this finite engagement is quite a herculean task in itself BUT, and here is the greater benefit, IT WILL CAUSE BOTH THE DLP AND BLP TO S*IT their pants.

    What this is is a “finite collaboration to access voter intelligence” which none of you have now, at least not to the degree of the DLP and the BLP, AS A PARTY!!

    They have coterminous data YOU DO NOT and if you gents/ladies can bring off this collaboration, “they” do not know what else you are capable of doing as the Third Initiative.

    (d).Wunna need a RDMS (Relational Database Management Systems) AS WELL AS A RDM Ombudsman, a trusted party who has a vested interest in the Third Party being successful.

    After wunna meet and sign the particulars, approach Former Prime Minister The Honourable Owen Seymour Arthur to be your RBM Ombudsman.

    Offer him full access to conjoint information for his constituency for who ever he designates. He WILL more than likely be willing to take this position to “hold the PLATFORM”

    I only going tell wunna SOME of the strategy here causing de fellers watching but this is not a “can be done thing” as much as it is a “when do we start thing”

    PM Arthur understands the issues with (a) the inept incumbents but more importantly (b) he also understands that, WHEN they loose, that the Despot Mugabe Wins.

    This is NOT an OPTION

    Thank you for having a re-read of the letter. You are indeed a man among men to be able to take a new perspective into consideration and to reassess your conclusions.

    Your advice @ 2:14 AM (Boss try and get some sleep yuh!!!) presupposes that BIM is so desperately anxious to come to political power, that they now need to master all of the typical albino-centric, Machiavellian tactics used by those who have led us into our present perdition.

    Consider, for example, the hypothetical situation where BIM is consisted of a group of already successful, highly intelligent, financially secure, and socially well-adjusted individuals who really DO NOT WANT (or need) TO DELVE into the cesspool of local politics, …BUT who, now seeing the dire situation of the thousands of clueless brass bowls that constitute their FAMILIES and FRIENDS, have decided to make themselves AVAILABLE as an alternative choice for a way forward for Barbados.

    Tell Bushie again why they need to resort to nasty, deceitful and gutter-like tactics???

    Boss, that approach is NEEDED by the jackass clowns and bottom-dwellers that have comprised our political class in the past and currently….

    Do you HONESTLY think that if Bushie could somehow have been persuaded to become involved in the politics of this world…. that the millionaire, ‘know-it-all’ (according to Hants 🙂 ), adopted, HAPPY-AS DONKEY, Bushman would run around from house to house begging brass bowls for their support …while promising to satisfy their petty albino-centric desires..??

    NOT STINKING BUSHIE!!!!
    ….and apparently not stinking Caswell either!!! 🙂
    Whose loss is that skippa…?

    The MORAL of that story is that when you see candidates being dressed up in their Machiavellian best and exploiting all the bribery, polling, high-powered advertising, and such tactics, you can pretty much rest assured that you are being sold well-packaged shiite.

    Good products need VERY little promotion and glitz….

    As Frustrated Businessman constantly says…. No worthwhile, COMPETENT Barbadian will subject themselves and their families to the cesspool of nastiness that constitutes local politics.

    Perhaps we may now have a better understanding of why Grenville’s candidates are NOT interested in behaving like the typical political class…. or why BIM is moved to talk about SPIRITUAL values and ethics ….. although they have targeted the wrong audience via the shiite churches we have…

    @ Brother Bush Tea

    I cannot find the words where I think it was the prophet Ezekiel who speaks of the Omnipotence of the Lord of Hosts to place flesh and sinews on rocks and bones and cause them to live.

    Indeed we both know that Jesus the Christ could have said to the fish in the sea jump into this boat with these disciples who fish without catching anything and it would have been so.

    It is also true that, even though a stick is malformed that I could take that warped stick and draw a straight line.

    My point which you know well does not belie in anyway the fact that IF IT BE HIS WILL, it will be so.

    I am however dealing with this matter in the similar vein of said Jesus the Christ and applying the concept of a verb is a doing word.

    The problem with our successive governments is that everyone of these nitwits starts of learning about what the people’s needs are AFTER THEY GET IN OFFICE.

    And, since they are not like you with a direct line to GOD, they take the better part of 2 years getting a handle on what is going on.

    Jesus the Christ could have transfigured Himself and all His disciples to wherever he was going, yet barring a few instances which the New Testament records, HE chose to walk to many a place, including Calvary.

    What is albino-centric about using a computer and locating where people live?

    What is albino centric about starting the Third Party Initiative with the practice of collaboration?

    Suppose we have 30 Pauls who were just 2 months previous Sauls?

    I guess that you will say to me that such is not to be a consideration in their representations to the average ingrunt Bajan cause everything is going to be alright.

    How is this any different to the situation that we have right now where we say “give them time, dem new?”

    Why do you use the computer Brother Bush Tea? Whu you could as well go out in the highways and hedges and on the housetops and shout your message per BBE.

    We are dealing with a stiff-necked people who cannot be swayed by mere mamby pamby words bout ammmm Integrity and Morality and all the rest of the piffle.

    They do not live it so it is relegated to being piffle.

    I will suggest that if Jesus was to be subjected to the Crucifixion @ today His would not have been a walking to the various nodes of encounter through the fold but He would have taken a car and a plane too.

    The lil yute them that need to vote have cell phones and Ipads (Chris Decimals give way many in St Michael North West) and as you see the message no longer comes by morse code and smoke signals or flashing mirrors in sunlight.

    The Electoral List is 700 pages of dot matrix paper, it must be less nowadays, but that is real trees for one day’s voting.

    It should be on a CD and furthermore when you come to vote it should show your picture so people cannot go and vote twice while using someone’s compromised ID or passport.

    In one breath I see many here complain about 4 hour waits in lines at the licensing department yet, here we are speaking about me coming by your home and saying Bushie, how you? and the kids Myrtle and Hezekiah? and how is the low water pressure issue going? you having the same issue as your neighbours?

    Well Bushie here is my solution.

    I going phase it in this way because you living on the slant and the gravity feeds will operate this way and this is whu it going cost and i going get the money from ***

    I do hope that you are not going to be having no speaking in tongues sessions? to address the diurnal needs of people?

    The same calculations that suggest the possibility of a future phase transition in the Higgs field also suggest that our current metastable configuration could persist, not just for billions of years but for billions of billions of billions of years. And there are other sources of consolation. Nature is constantly surprising us. Discoveries at the Large Hadron Collider or elsewhere could change the picture entirely, stabilizing what appears to be an unstable Higgs field.
