A complaint filed on the threat calls purportedly made a month ago by 15 people, out of whom 4 are women? This smacks of sheer desperation. Good lord, the kind of advice lawyers give to their clients in order to muddy the waters.

There is still time. Let the leaders and eminent “social workers” rise to the challenge, bring the parties together and settle it amicably. What has happened to the bishop by the way? Why is he burying his head in the sand?

A spark neglected eventually will burn down the house.
