'FAKE' RELIGIOUS LEADERS SCAMPS AND SCHEMERS
Former independent senator, Rev
Daniel Teelucksingh, says there are too
many schemers and scamps posing as
religious men and women in today's
Joy Cassie-leach So true. It's now
Michelle Mitchell The biggest! It's
become family businesses and all.
Aneil Ishan Mann They are in it all
for the money.
Alex Rackal Well said Rev, but
that going on long time now, its no
more about the kingdom of God but
the kingdom of money much like the
American elevangelists n others.
Mandy Dubarry-Friday Tax free
dollars and plenty control of sheep. I
see the appeal.
Sian Faye Religion is a big scheme
breds. Don't vex with the competition.
Brian Parker In today's T&T the
majority of people are scamps and
schemers; in other words they are
Jlee Francois Jesus said feed my
sheep not milk them.
Lou Sandy The wise prey off the
Camille Massiah Any religion de-
manding tithes or asking for offering
Annie Rampersad Now that's
Audrey Dyall Not in T&T only but
all over the world. Amen
Indra Ribeiro Oh gosh Rev...they
are like germs...everywhere!
Savitri Warnauth The worst part
is they demand tithes. They tell you
you are blessed only if you bless the
man of god. Yet in that same church
you can see the less fortunate. What
do they do to help them? Nothing. I
am proud to be who I am. Your church
is never better than any else's.
Merlina Robinson God will deal
with all fake pastors of that ilk, ac-
cordingly. See Matthew 7:15-23.
Vinnie Envoy GoldenBoy Yo u
guys now found that out? They even
abuse the free land tax that they re-
ceive for religious reasons but then it's
really real estate business they're in. A
sale sign put up and boom, they at it
again. When members ask where the
funds to paint or repair building, there
is no allocation. A blame game starts
and the leader changing vehicles every
month and passes their members
straight when they waiting for a ride.
It's just business. Some streets have
several of the same group---it's compe-
tition between these businesses.
Richard Wilson Religion is man
made. It's a business. Scam ppl for
dey money business. A pastor once
preached about First Fruit to us eh
and hear him nah, "First Fruit means
that your very first earnings of the
beginning of every year is to give to the
man of God." So if I working offshore
my very first salary in January, is de
First Fruit n dat is d pastor own?! Well
dat was the last day I set foot in dat
Corruption at regional
Local Government Minister Kazim
Hosein plans to investigate anoth-
er report of corrupt activity taking
place at a regional corporation start-
Shyankaran Lalla Investigate
Angela Gouveia An honourable
Harry Ramharack Minister Ho-
sein you sound genuine. Corruption
is widespread. Tackling this problem
is a Herculean task. Your determina-
tion can be really gauged if the clean
up were to start at the Sando Corpo-
Army fingers 3 in payroll
scam: $2m siphoned off
Two members of the T&T De-
fence Force (TTDF) are now under
arrest at the TTDF's headquarters in
Chaguaramas, as investigations con-
tinue into the defrauding of almost
$2 million in payments.
Joy Cassie-leach They need me
to do their payroll and admin.
Nikki Lew Do police payroll as
well. Doh stick. U might find some
surprises as well. U never know.
Madonna Brandon According
to this article, this has been "going
on for years and years." My question
is, why was it allowed to continue
and how many of those high ranking
officers who are now retired, also
benefitted from it?
Nerissa Dqueen "Three fin-
.....when the s--- hit the fan,
there will be lots more "fingering"
Faith Caldon Fraser-Shepherd
What a mess but at the same time, I
am not surprised.
Trini who fled over kidnap
fears soars in US Navy
In 2006 when businessman Ber-
tram Dookeran found out that a plot
was being hatched to kidnap his
22-year-old son, he took the tough
decision and sent him to the United
States for safe keeping.
Joy Cassie-leach Go Navy. This
Navy Chief is proud of another Trini
in the Navy.
Helen Kelshall Congratulations!
Leslie-Ann Mills-Gomez Well
Lyndon Connor So the ppl who
was planning to kidnap him knows
he's in the states now.
Basdai Premchandsingh This is
an example of someone who had to
run. That does not mean that he has
to live the rest of his life in hiding.
I am proud of him the way I would
be proud of any other Trini who did
his best to excel. The country that
embraced him and gave him the
opportunity is now his home and I
wish him all the best in the future.
May God bless all our children who
must leave Trinidad and make a life
Loretta Ruth He's dedicated and
loyal to the government off the USA
and in so doing is flying the Trinidad
flag high? I ent understand dat one.
Nadia Amart How are we proud
of this? He is serving another coun-
try? What has he done for ours?
Chandra Maharaj To those who
do not understand and therefore
criticise: Still I Rise by Maya Angelou
Lawrence Kanhai Well it doesn't
matter what they know about his
status now.....he's US NAVY...let
that soak in. Would like those cock-
roaches to come through now. Good
Heidi Lisa Frontin What is there to
criticise? What is wrong with peo-
ple! My God have mercy. The father
sent his son away who rose through
the challenge and made a success of
himself and now folks talking about
what he has done for Trinidad and
all that madness! Had he stayed
he would have been dead. What is
wrong with yawl! My goodness! This
is a good thing, how can you find evil
in this? I just can't!
