Bishop Wants Examination Of Gambling

From The Bahamas-

ANGLICAN Diocesan Bishop Laish Boyd said the gaming sector “does not add value to our economy” and called on the government to “lead a fuller inquiry into the social and moral side effects” of gambling.

#In his Charge to the 114th session of the Synod, Bishop Boyd said gambling “gouges out a chunk of flesh from the torso of this nation and creates syndrome of ill effects that will call for a lot of repair and healing”.

#Bishop Boyd postponed the Synod last month in the aftermath of Hurricane Joaquin “in light of the devastation, disruption, dislocation, and hardship suffered” in the islands battered by the storm, but in the intended annual address he touched on a number of social issues affecting the country.
