    Road safety and gun violence are real issues we as a community need to pioritize and address now …having paid ministers spending time stopping folks who love each other getting married is not useful for anyone we, as individuals ,community groups and church can be more involved … why have we not seen a prayer wall on gun violence issues ?
    Nobody marching for these causes either ???

      So very true!!!

      • Think about it says:

        Voted no in Same sex marriage referendum…..14,192

        Voted for OBA on July 18 ……………….13,832

        If you gay people have so much mouth organize a march to Cabinet House, but you’re afraid. If you can’t stand up for your own love rights how can you be taken seriously. In the USA they organize a march but same sex partners here hide behind a palm tree and complain like cowards.

    • Mike says:

      It may be a case of “it’s terrible – but it doesn’t affect me”….

      People march for what affects them.

      • Sherbet man says:

        Lmao with that logic guess there are more gay people than we thought…

      • inna says:

        Same Sex Marriage doesn’t affect any of the people who demonstrated against it.

    • bee says:

      those “protesters” and “marchers” were nothing but political TOYS being used by the puppet master. that’s why you won’t see them marching or throwing their bodies in front of the HoA on REAL issues like gun violence.

        Don’t be so sure…the tipping point may yet be reached.

    Well, with road safety we have the cops issuing countless “due care” tickets, stretching the definition to include an increasingly broad array of offenses, collecting $30,000 in one hour at magistrates court for ‘third laning’, whilst there has been no increase in drunk driving arrests despite Dr. Joe Froncioni claiming police are not testing all major accident casualties for alcohol even when some are full hot (since 1996). Our stats are therefore meaningless since no one wants to point fingers at Bermudas’ #1 drug of choice. The other major addiction causing accidents that is largely ignored is cell phones, texting or yakking away while driving which more closely fits the charge driving without due care and attention than third laning which can be done safely.

    Sad part is the police knows but they would rather set up a stop and search for yhe every day person and some of these momas know too but they wanna treat their kids like their comapny.. Takes a village but the village is not together in these times its every man/woman for themselves.. So sad bring back the love we once had call a gatjering for all parents with boys and their kids to one big error and do what we have to do as loving carjng people!!!

  4. Tired and jaded says:

    Same sex marriage doesn’t negatively affect anyone else’s life. Why are the churches and ministers even involved in this? Why are they wasting time ignoring very serious social issues (like gun violence) that should warrant an all out march and protest? Let people love and marry whoever they choose. There are extremely pressing social issues in Bermuda that require action.

      “Same sex marriage doesn’t negatively affect anyone else’s life. Why are the churches and ministers even involved in this?”

      Because they’re angry hypocrites with an agenda of hatred, jealousy and homophobia.

  5. Bermudian says:

    Does it affect any of you Mary, Skytrain or Mike?

    • Mary says:

      Road safety and gang violence effects us all

      • Bermudian says:

        Ok so instead of waiting for somebody else to start the march on gun violence & road safety you organize it, how bout that?

  6. JohnBoy says:

    When will people learn?!

  7. EmmaReal says:

    It affects us all.

    • Nikon says:

      It affects us all enough that we, collectively, do nothing.

  8. bdaboy says:

    “It affects us all enough that we, collectively, do nothing”

    In true Bermudian style….”my people aren’t shooting each other up, so why should I care?”

    Same as…” I got my rights in the 60′s, so why should I care about equal rights for all Bermudians now?”
