LETTER: Pedophiles owes the public an apology before credence is given to them

15

DEAR EDITOR:

I am forced to pen this letter because as we are now approaching our general elections, it is extremely mind boggling as to why one of our main political parties have on their front line, men who are  characterized as pedophiles. CLICK HERE TO JOIN OUR WHATSAPP GROUP.

Interestingly, the voices of these pedophiles  are now heard  frequently on our radio talk shows, from which they use as a platform to try and convince the masses, which political party is best to align themselves with.

Of course, I certainly agree, that similar to any other resident or citizen of this country, pedophiles do have a constitutional right  to lend support to the political party they have preference for or the party they have allegiance to.

In addition, I will also accept that as a resident & perhaps as a citizen by birth, descent or otherwise, that pedophiles also have a right to make a contribution as they see it fit to any national or political debate.

However, although I am always of the view that these perpetrators deserve a second chance in life to redeem themselves, I think we, the public at large should not take for granted as to who they are and the serious nature of the crime they have committed.

Furthermore, I think that the public should demand from these pedophiles, a public apology  be made to the offended child without them being identified, to the parents and to the nation before any credence is given to what they say or do on our national radio, TV or any national or political platform.

For me, to welcome them into our political or national debates without having them showing  any remorse to the victims & our society, certainly sets a bad presedence. Hence, whatever they advocate through the national media should not have any merit.
We all should know that pedophiles do not only violate the physical, virgin fabric of a child but they also destroy for life,  the mental & psychological state of that child.

Pedophilia is a criminal act; it is an act of immorality and there is no more a cruel, perverted, and loathsome sin, than children’s molestation. So then, this leads to ask, where are the voices of the Christian Council in all of this?

Pedophiles usually bring shame & disgrace on themselves, their immediate families and by extension to their very own biological children thus causing them at most times, to withdraw from society.

As adults, and moreso as men & fathers, we need to be more responsible and be protectors & not molesters of our children. We should be leaders & not violators.  We should be role models & not be seen as criminals.

It is extremely deplorable to say the least, that our political parties who are vying to govern condone these persons on their frontline as they combat against their political opponents. Definitely, it does not speak well of the party’s leadership.

I will certainly say that I am not pointing fingers at any particular person or party but according to brother Bob Marley,  in one of his songs he wrote, If the cap fits you then wear it.

  1. The reason why caribbean (some if not most) people are accepting of sex b/w older and younger humans, is men from Massa days did it and the child that was raped was sometimes elevated to a position of house slave. The offspring, if there was one, was considered a tad superior and might have had an easier hardship than many other slaves.
    So it was about SURVIVAL.Sex benefitted many
    In today’s world, its about greed manipulation and laziness!!! Its easy for a man (or woman, or nonbinary) to molest than to work hard to form healthy relationships that will then help them to fulfill their carnal needs.
    For some, its JUST about power.
    However, now, we dont even seem to know the difference between right and wrong cause SATAN CORRECTING SIN

  2. FITZROY AGAIN.
    DO YOU REMEMBER WHEN ALL THE BIG WIG ABLP PARLIAMENTARIANS WERE INVOLVED IN A CHILD SEX RACKET AND NOT A DRUM WAS HEARD FROM ANYONE OF YOU. WAS NOT THAT PAEDOPHILIA OR PAEDOPHILIA DOESN’T APPLY TO ABLP?
    I AM NOT CONDONING ANY WRONG BUT ALL SIN IS SIN. SIN DON’T FIT ONE SIZE.
    ARE YOU CONDONING ALL THE DISRESPECT UTTERED BY OUR PM ON HIS NIGHT SOIL RADIO? HE REFERRED TO A YOUNG LADY AS THE VILLAGE BICYCLE!
    WE COULD GO ON AND ON…..BUT HE THAT IS WITHOUT SIN FIRST CAST A STONE.

    • DOES ANYONE REMEMBER THE NAME CARLA SAMUEL?

      THE FATHER OF THE NATION LIVED WITH A 15 YEAR OLD GIRL….WAS NOT THAT PAEDOPHILIA?

      SATAN CORRECTING SIN!

    • To Poverty,
      If you didn’t know, the young lady who was used by the opposition of that time to sully the name of our them PM, eventually confessed that the story was indeed fabricated. She had never met the then PM.
      So be careful not to continue to perpetuate this falsehood in defense of the current claim.
      This issue needs to be fleshed out thoroughly before elections are called. It will give the party a chance to decide on replacing that “alleged” accused candidate in order to expeditiously salvage the situation. Many times, we as humans do things in our past which we don’t realize still affect other people. Let the facts play out for greater transparency.

  3. To the hierarchy of UPP: GoodLeadership is only determined by the company you keep! If you lie with dogs you will definitely rise with their fleas.

  4. Strange Brixton the woman advocate who has the most to say about the government is MIA on this wonderful why👀

  5. Is this a joke? Why does ANR keep publishing letters like this? If the author of this piece or the prime minister of the country have information as to who these pedophiles are, then share it with law enforcement. Let them investigate and prosecute. Otherwise, it smells as just another “hit piece”. Is this seriously where Antigua is in 2022. This is what passes for sensible political discourse. People get real and raise your standards.

  6. Lol, it amazes me how people always use pseudonyms to write their comments. What are you hiding from or behind?

  7. I would like to see us bring back flogging in our penal system. Sex offenders should be flogged in public. So that they can get publicly shamed as part of their punishment.
