    It was a breath of fresh air taking in BLACK LIGHT as they performed on Thursday afternoon. Quite a varied repertoir, of musical genres and artists, from Michael Jackson, to Kassav, to Soca artists, to Ali Campbell, to Bob Marley. This was my band for Creole in the Park 2011.

      Just to correct the spelling of the band’s name “Blaklyte”. However, thank you for the compliment and it was a pleasure doing creole in the park this year. Wishing to do more such as these events. Much love to all who support and encourage the band

    i think as a christian u should lead by example…. but in dominica i don’t understand something… if we all serve jesus christ then why is it a catholic feels alright to jump up and do all kind of indecent activity… but if a ‘christian’ pull up by the road where an activity going on… one have to ask if so and so not a christian…. aint we serving the same lord and saviour… if that’s the case then deep down catholics know that something is terribly wrong with their cult…. u serve God… he has ordered that we shouldn’t drink to the point of getting drunk… if so we should drink in moderation… papa as soon as them loogaawoo finish take lusty they in rum shop and ponging beff… even fighting in church yard… something not right with the following…. once a protestant christian is seen near some sort of activity he/she is beaten verbally to the point of emberassment…. so it’s obvious protestants are held to a higher responsibility than the catholics…. as a christian u can celebrate your culture… don’t be hypocrites nothing is wrong in taking in some form of celebration…. jesus celebrated with sinners alike…. but always remember since u are looked up to… u should try your best to avoid exposure… catholics…. if it’s bad for u all to do and it is wrong for someone else…. then something must be wrong with what u all are doing….

      Mat 7:1-5 “Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. “Part of the reason for the double standard is exemplified in you comment. When you pretend to be holier than thou, then you get judged more harshly. Why do you assume all these people are Catholics?

      There are many issues that can be pointed out with the way Catholics practice their faith and so to for the protestant religions. Sin is no different whether it be done in the day or under the cover of night. Only you and God know your heart. Calling people names, “Loogawoo,” and projecting such venomous statements (cult); is that Christian like? The Catholic religion is very inclusive and therefore is accepting of many non-practicing Christian. In that respect , and given the diversity of its congregation and their usually varying opinions makes catholism less of a “cult” in comparison. Most importantly, there are many Catholics who don’t participate in these types of activities.

      I have spent significant amounts of time traveling and worshiping and it’s only in this region have I experienced such animosity between the protestant religions and classical Christian religions. For your information these groups has had the mantle of bringing CHRISTIANITY around the world for 100s of years (admittedly with many faults), before the establishment of protestants religions. They have made it possible for you to call yourself a Christian. Catholicism is founded upon the idea to, serve and pray to God like you do, believe in Jesus Christ much like you do, believe in heaven and hell like you do, go to God to ask for forgiveness like you do, spread Gods word to others like you do, believe in the holy ghost like you do, but most of all these can be people who have good hearts, truly care about others and spend their life helping and caring for others like I hope you do. Stop being judgmental… your day will be here soon enough.

      Religion will never get you to heaven. I think most important is that you be a good person, with a forgiving heart, live an exemplary life and love your God regardless of who or what it is and if there is a reward at the end you will attain it.

      My 2 cents.

      as a christian as u say, dont u know that the bible says: JUDGE NOT. and i wonder what it means to be a christian? isn’t it that a christian is one who believes in God and Jesus Christ as a personal Lord and savior. I what is the difference between who the catholics serve and who u serve as a christian.

      Well he just did it openly. You problem does not appear to be with the revelling, it is about being caught. My take on this, if a man wants/feels he wants to do something he should not hide to do it, especially if he feels there is nothing wrong with what he is doing.
