Did Council of Churches Yield to G.O.B.’s Petrocaribe Carrot?

Noel Leslie

But is the ecumenical chapel that is to be constructed at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital the sugared pill for the change of heart? Father Leslie said that the topic came up at a past meeting of the Council of Churches and was seen as a good gesture that serves all denominations equally.

“There is a notion floating around out there that the Council of Churches may have been enticed by the fact that the prime minister, or the government has offered to build and ecumenical [chapel] at the K.H.M.H. and this may have something to do now with the vote in favor of the amendments to the act.  Can you dispel those notions, if that is so?”

 

Rev. Father Noel Leslie, Senator for the Churches

“I must say at one of our meetings in the past that that was brought up and we saw it as something good, something good for the hospital because it would serve everybody, no particular church, that everybody could use it and it is something tangible, to be seen by everybody.”

 

The wider membership of the Council of Churches is yet to respond to the position of the Catholic Church.
