How is it that political parties can acknowledge they have accepted money from “numbers house” owners and there seems to be very little or no public/religious expression of revulsion and disgrace?
Many of those who voted in support of the PLP in the last elections are already regretting their vote as they witness discrimination, victimization and backroom deals on oil drilling and gambling.
A letter to the editor of the local media shows that many of those supporting a referendum on gambling are using fool’s logic to convince themselves that it is the right path to take.
I find it hard to see how a person can argue that people should not be prohibited from gambling based on moral considerations and at the same time support other prescriptive or prohibitive laws (like marriage laws) that are also based on moral considerations.
