Group Condemns Irresponsible Reporting by Online News Source

Howell Longsworth

In support of the Council of Churches, Pastor Howell Longsworth, of the Belize Evangelical Association, also calls to question the recklessness by the reporter on the social media site in attacking the leadership of the church for what is political mischief.

“My concern is that the desperation of some people to use and to attack the spiritual leaders in our nation for political reasons.  It’s certainly one that we cannot agree with and I do concur that it is not our idea to attack any government, as a matter of fact, but to work along with them for the best interest, best spiritual interest of the nation and of the people.  We are called to pray for those in authority and so it would certainly not be any attempt by the church to pull down or to make such statements.  So I’m hear to agree with what the Council of Churches has said this morning.”

“It was brought to our attention by a member of our church who obviously must be more of a Facebook fan than I am.  But I did personally go ahead and post a response on Facebook with regards to this article.  So yes, a simple answer to your question, we do find time sometimes to be on Facebook as well.”


The church reminds all adult members of its flock, as well as citizens at large that it is their duty to vote and therefore calls on all voters to go and cast their votes on Wednesday.
