DNA: Bahamian’s Misfortune Equals PLP Political Expediency - Sep 1, 2014 - 3:08:01 PM

More than five years have passed since the Supreme Court ordered the winding up of CLICO (Bahamas). The closure of CLICO’s local operation, which at the time accounted for 68% of its parent company’s total premiums in the region, translated into major job losses for some 141 qualified Bahamians including 90 sales agents, and 50 administrative staff. Even worse however, was the fact that thousands of Bahamians lost all the funds they invested in insuring their lives and valuables. Those Bahamians, an estimated thirty thousand of them, have, years later received no satisfaction or reimbursement for their policies.
According to court records, CLICO (Bahamas) handled some 17, 297 Life Insurance policies in the Bahamas with annual premiums of $5.1 million dollars. In Accident and Sickness Health policies, the figure totaled...

"Regarding Pastor Myles Munroe’s press release: Homosexuality - Phobia or Principle” - Sep 1, 2014 - 1:56:07 PM

I have respected Dr. Myles Munroe in a various capacities since my youth (as a then member of Bahamas Faith Ministries International), and continue to do so in certain instances. Thus, I was rather surprised at the discourse between him and Minister of Foreign Affairs, Fred Mitchell earlier this year.

In reference to his recent press release, I must ask if Dr. Munroe describes statutory rape and child molestation as ‘unnatural human behaviour’, as he does homosexuality? Should LGBT people that have not committed sex crimes be treated the same as - or worse than - those that have? Perhaps I am unaware of Dr. Munroe's response to other issues of national concern related to a number of “men of the cloth” over the decades that have been convicted of sexual crimes against minors in their care...
