Nassau, Bahamas — Developments unfolding in the Supreme Court involving Archdeacon Etienne Bowleg and the Anglican Church of the Bahamas proves once again how strong the devil sits on the pulpit.
Here’s another story we began to crack last week but decided to let members of the media deliver to you. We are not proud of Bowleg’s actions nor are we willing to accept his brazen defiance against the leadership of the Anglican Church.
It is no wonder the so-called “father’s” son couldn’t behave in public and was all over the place evading justice, selling dope and shooting at police in high–speed chases. They have no example!
Readers would remember it was Bowleg’s son who March of last year was caught up in a high–speed chase through the streets of the capital. Etienne Jr. a 24 year old resident of Twynam Heights, made the police speed trough the streets where he and other occupants also opened fire on officers. Police stopped the vehicle – a 2003 BLUE Lincoln Navigator – license plate #99 (HIS FATHER’S Car) and upon investigating inside they found drugs, two guns and rounds ready to kill someone, INCLUDING POLICE OFFICERS.
It was this same son of Bowleg who also threatened to kill the Archbishop and was overheard saying so in front of his ‘VICKED’ papa.
A 1937 birth certificate provided to the court proved Archdeacon Bowleg’s age as having reached retirement, yet, he continues to LIE suggesting he is younger than 72. The Diocese confirmed he is 72 and therefore he must retire and turn over all keys of the Church to the Bishop. The fact is he’s two years beyond the mandatory retirement age for Anglican priests. He claims to be 64 although his registered birth certificate proves otherwise. The man is delusional!
BP wonders what lawyer in the Bahamas would represent such a deluded man fighting the Church? It only could be someone from Ingraham’s Chambers, ‘da Devil himself’.
Bahamas Press wonders what manner of man is this who would ‘LIE BOLDLY’ before God, His Church and the LAW OF THE LAND over his age and then come Sunday after Sunday dressed in linen claiming to be THE–MAN-OF-GOD and Sub Dean of the Cathedral. What ‘VICKEDNESS‘!
The rector of the Church of the Most Holy Trinity early this week laid an injunction before the court telling the Church he shall not be moved. WHAT IS THIS?
The court will be hearing the matter this week. Justice Jon Isaacs, a committed DECENT Anglican, will preside. But there is more to this.
Bahamas Press ‘deep throat’ at the Trinity Complex tell us the Archdeacon is now attempting to sign over control of the parish to a Diocese in the United States and by doing so answer to a new Bishop. Sources in the Church believes, this is the reason for the injunction, which will buy time and allow him to later argue that as rector of the parish he has no case to answer with the local diocese. The battle could set a precedent within the Anglican community, which for years have remained as a unified institution with solid liturgy and structure in The Bahamas. What could this mean for the future of the communion of Anglicanism in the Bahamas if the break-a-way occurs and is allowed to happen? What could the STATE CHURCH look like following such naked defiance?
The rector has cemented himself in madness and is now playing devil’s advocate in breaking up the Diocese of the Bahamas. Here today is a trend too often seen by men possessed with GREED and SELFISHNESS all over the world. They have LOST their passion for souls, witnessing and building up the Kingdom of God! They have waxed cold, iced hard with evil in their old age searching for carnal delights, possessed with lasciviousness! Becoming UNHOLY, UNGODLY, RUDE, UNCHRISTIAN and BLATANTLY WICKED AS THEY CRUSH, MAIM AND PILLAGE GOD’S SOCIAL INSTITUTION FOR LOST MANKIND ON EARTH!
What a bad example Bowleg is displaying for authority. How could little children, teenagers and adults see this and continue to have respect for any kind of authority, when THE MAN OF GOD has none for his superiors?
We cry SHAME on Bowleg! And today we’ve lost ALL respect for him.
We advise Bishop Laish Z. Boyd, who we resoundingly support, to exercise his powers as Bishop of the Bahamas and immediately suspend the Vestry at The Most Holy Trinity Church in accordance with emblems of power and TRUST handed to him as the 16th Bishop of the Bahamas and titular head of the Diocese.
We ask him to grasp firmly his iron crozier his symbol of pastoral office delivered on Sunday 8th February, 2009, at 4PM in Christ Church Cathedral and physically STRIKE THE DEVIL with it if he must!
We advise him to appoint an interim transition team to assume the daily management of the Church instructing them to force an audit of the books therein. And we support his move to have all locks changed IMMEDIATELY AND SAVE THE PARISH!
An emergency meeting should be held to oversee this transition and BLOCK ANY FURTHER DECISION ON BEHALF OF THE CHURCH TO BE CARRIED OUT BY THE PARISH LOCAL AUTHORITY!
And while the decision to have a rector battles in the court, LET THE ‘DEBOL’ KNOW WHO IS In-Charge! let him know who the Synod [The Convention of the Church and supreme governing body of the Diocese] left in charge the last time it met.
Now is the time for all members of the Cathedral Chapter to surround their BISHOP in protecting and defending his control over the Church! This is the time for them to guard the Church and its assets with their lives! DEFEND IT TO THE DEATH!
And this is the time for all the prayer worriers to find their knees and together KICK THE ‘DEBOL’ OUT!
Bowleg should know when you cannot leave in peace and obey the rules one way, God has ways to take ya out Himself!
