REVEREND R. Alphonso Porter of the Church of the Nazarene is the new Chairman of the Guyana Council of Churches (GCC) executive.He and other principal officers were elected at the council,s Annual General Meeting at the Roman Catholic Life Centre on Brickdam, Georgetown on October 19, last.
These comments being made as they were, in the presence of religious leaders like Bishop Allen, Al-Hajj Fazeel Ferouz and Rev Porter, President of the Guyana Council of Churches, and others.
It would appear that the government Ministers have concluded that the Guyanese religious communities have no teeth so they are unable to command greater respect from the government.
This does not auger well for a favourable government response to the Petition signed by three Christian leaders, Rev Raphael Massiah, Rev Alphonso Porter and Pastor Lloyd Stewart, which was presented to the National Assembly last Thursday opposing the reading, consideration and passage of the Gambling Prevention (Amendment) Bill.
