Boyne's naivety and Shaw's dilemma

Published:Monday | April 25, 2016 | 4:00 AM

THE EDITOR, Sir:

I must comment on Jeduthan Romeo's article published in The Gleaner on April 20, 2016 in answer to Ian Boyne's article published on Sunday, April 17, 2016, 'That 1.5 won't go away'.

When I read the Sunday article, I vouched to comment on Mr Boyne's new worship of the Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) to the point where it borders on Christian sin. I am a People's National Party (PNP) supporter, but I am not a PNP worshipper, therefore, if they do anything wrong I will quickly point it out.

A vivid example is Portia's crying about dual citizenship. At that time, my dad was alive and he jumped on her bandwagon, and I calmly said to my dad, "Pops, stop it. Is because she a lose that's why she a bring that up. The Constitution had that in it and she should have corrected it before now. Therefore, although I am a PNP right through, I am not going to worship them because they are not God."

Ian Boyne is the opposite, however, and should give up one of the positions - it's either God or man (you can't serve two masters at the same time). I feel that Mr Boyne as a pastor needs to step down because he has replaced God for such a long time that he is unaware of this.

If there's any hope for Jamaica, we need to get rid of the double-mindedness that is prevailing in our society today. Mr Boyne was aware that the 'Tom Fool' day promise of the JLP was just that, but Mr Shaw must remember that he did that once with the nurses, and what was the repercussion?

I see that the JLP is trying just as hard to get out of the auxiliary fees promise, but I am one that will be holding them to that. I do not believe that I am a fool so I do not support the gem, 'A promise is a comfort to a fool'. I am going to want the promised.

TIRESOME QUESTIONING

Mr Boyne, it might be tiresome to you, and I quote, " ... the media keep asking the same question over and over. It has become tiresome". Well, it might be to you, sir, but to me, it is relevant until the powers that be pay it over.

Might I ask Mr Boyne what it is that he is waiting for? I am confident that from his substantive post, he far exceeds the $1.5 million.

Romeo's article represents all that other Jamaicans like myself wished to say about Boyne's article and his love for the JLP, so I need not say anymore than to ask him to use up the altar and go repent. Mr Boyne, don't let your sins go unto the day of judgement because that 'deh day deh you corner a go dark'.

1 Timothy 5:24: "Some men's sins are open beforehand, going before to judgment, and some men they follow after."
