REV KEITH RUSSELL’S PERSPECTIVE | 22 August 2020

On imagination It is obvious to most persons in this country now that this government administration is failing miserably. The only ones left who still think otherwise are those benefiting from an unholy alliance with this incompetent, callous crew; and, of course, those who have a residual amount of that conscience searing, retina contaminating red, […]

REV KEITH RUSSELL ON FREEPORT CAMPUS OF U B

Dear Editor,  The University of Bahamas (UB) is prominently in the news again; and this time the news is troubling.

Moreover, it is astounding how many Bahamians are infected with a collective amnesia about or are historically ignorant of the fact that the FNM party has […]

REV KEITH RUSSELL RESPONDS TO FNM CRITICS

Some folks that I have encountered down at one of Freeport’s unofficial parliaments argue that my writings, or political rants as they called them, do not display my Christianity. They don’t seem pastoral. After all, a Pastor is supposed to display neutrality and offer comfort to people. It is unchristian, they say, to be calling […]
