Bishop gets audience with Cabinet

4

CABINET NOTES:

Bishop Charlesworth Browne of the Kingdom Leaders also presented himself to Cabinet, as one of the Kingdom Leaders who sought an audience with Cabinet.

The Bishop explained that three other members of this new organization were to have joined him, but they are unvaccinated and are unable to enter the Prime Minister’s office (based on the COVID-19 vaccine policy) where the Cabinet Secretariat is housed. The Bishop applauded the newest Covid-19 policies of the Cabinet.

Nevertheless, two cases demonstrated an anomaly in the application of the policy, he argued. The first is of a policeman who went on leave before the mandatory vaccination policy was in place; yet, his salary has not been paid. He was asked while on leave to prove that he had taken the vaccine.

The policy then in operation allowed him to remain unvaccinated until the September 30th deadline, though his leave was still active in October.

The Cabinet accepted that this approach did not comport with the policy that was initiated and gave the assurance that the matter will be investigated and the policeman will be paid what is rightfully his.

The second case involved a lady at an insurance company who sought a religious exemption.

The Bishop was told by the Chairman of Cabinet that the private sector is free to determine which rules govern on their premises.

The lady is to seek an exemption from the private employer.

The regulations published do not narrowly point to Rastafarians as the only religious group that can enjoy exemptions.

However, the exemptions ought not to be granted on the basis of personal belief but on the announced theological basis of the religious sect.

  1. Wow! Bishop Browne aka Anarchy was Gaston Browne aka top dawg in attendance when you met the cabinet? Why I am asking he said he would never meet with no mac’amay pastor. If he was in attendance did he apologize for those statements or you just fall in line as a good comrade.

    • Hope you paying your taxes to the IRS. They went after Wesley Snipes and they will come get you too. Btw still pretending to care about Antigua and Barbuda is not a good look for you Missa Knight. You already publicly declared that an Antigua and Barbuda PASSPORT IS OF NO VALUE to you because you have your UNITED STATES OF AMERICA PASSPORT!!! Biden looking for you.

      You have come a longggg way since your days working in the warehouse at Mill Reef. When last you check up on your son though???

  2. Sound like confusion to me. Imagine, so-called religious leaders not vaccinated (and thereby can’t come before the Cabinet)!!!! What kind of relgious leaders are these people anyway? These unvaccinated “religious leaders” absolutely cannot and should not be able to enter the PMs office. They sound like poor examples for their “flock”. The rule to keep them out makes a lot of sense. We don’t want the possibility of so-called preachers spreading Covid to our Cabinet. What a mess. Who are these people anyway? All I know is this place is full of bishop wannabees and psuedo apostles and prophets, even self-made pastors and evangelists. We need to be very careful and ever-watchful.

  3. Cabinet should invite the real bishops to meet with them. The Antigua Christian Council and the Evangelical Alliance group should be invited, too. They speak for the huge majority of Christians in this country, and they have some real bishops among them (in the apostolic succession). This “Kingdom”? fringe group is a very tiny minority in the faith community, with lots of fancy titles.
