Christian Council on crime
The St. Kitts Christian Council LED by Chairman Canon P. Allister Rawlins HAS reiterated the church’s stance on crime, noting through a press statement that the church “holds very dearly the value of human life and believes that life is a precious gift from God, the Creator.”
The Christian Council noted its alarm and distress at the losses of life experienced during the month of February.
As such, the council used the statement to call on citizens, parents, leaders of civic institutions, law enforcement, political entities, and government, to examine “the ways in which children are raised, the rhetoric and intolerant behaviour that is being modelled that could lead to the disregard for the sanctity of life and the proliferation of guns in our nation.”
The statement ended by noting emphatically that this cannot continue.
The St. Kitts Christian council is made up of member churches Anglican, Catholic, Methodist, Moravian and the Salvation Army.
