Jamaica: Church hypocrisy & prime ministerial hopefuls

Categories: Caribbean, Jamaica

CoolDestiny is put off [1] by the hypocrisy shown by her former church in its refusal to handle the funeral of a woman on the grounds that she was an “informal commercial importer” (also known in Jamaica as a “higgler”). The church claimed the funeral would attract “patrons [who] would smoke, drink, curse etc. on the church compound.” And Scratchie posts photos and a short commentary [2] on the four likely candidates for the position of Jamaican prime minister, which will become vacant when P. J. Patterson retires later this year.
