“The Catholic clergy in Sri Lanka has created immense bad will amongst the Sri Lankan citizens by openly supporting a criminal, Velupillai Prabhakaran and his coterie of murderers.” – Prof. Hudson McLean
Catholic clergy has in many instances played a role to support the “under dog” in many countries. In this case the LTTE is not the under dog, more of a wild mad dog, the Devil in disguise.
Catholic clergy in Sri Lanka has created immense bad will amongst the Sri Lankan citizens by openly supporting a criminal, Velupillai Prabhakaran and his coterie of murderers.
The government under Mahinda Rajapaksa and his cabinet has done an exemplary salvation of Sri Lanka after 33 years of blood shed and annihilation created by the Tamil Tiger terrorists.
Moreover, President Rajapaksa has created an atmosphere of reconciliation, goodwill, fair play, and put the Island on a fast track development programme.
By playing into the hands of Norwegians, USA under the influence of the remnants of Tamil Tigers in USA, France, Canada, Cardinal Malcolm Ranjit, as the leading shepherd, is dragging his Catholic flock into a quagmire.
I do hope, Rome is informed of this bigoted behaviour of the Cardinal, taking a political slant whilst on duty and be instructed to behave according to his call of duty, but not act as a messenger of terrorists.
If the Cardinal in his wisdom, feels he wishes to play a real constructive role in the development of Sri Lanka and with that the Catholic Church faithful, and in that order, he should first take a long serious look at what President Rajapaksa has done during his tenure, till now!
Cardinal better get off his tight rope act before he sacrifices all the Catholics in Sri Lanka to the Devil. – Lankaweb, Nov. 6, 2011
