Re: ONLY VILLAGE CONMEN, WAIGANI THIEVES & FOREIGN INVESTORS WANT THESE MINES, LNG PROJECT
Am disappointed in you two Posted Jun 20, 2010 12:34 PM
Do you truly have no sympathy or empathy for the literally thousands of people in and around those mines who have suffered physically and mentally because of the mines? Are you so distanced from your Christian teachings that you consider this 'collateral damage' that is necessary for the sake of those in our towns and cities who obviously get the most benefit out of these mines?
If so, then shame on you. Shame, shame, shame. Any Christian who understands the teachings of Jesus Christ would never look on even one human being as nothing more than 'collateral damage'. Nor would they excuse human tragedies as being necessary in the name of development. Finally, anyone with a gram of sense in their head would realise that without a clean, healthy environment, one cannot live a good life. Yet there you two are, basically saying that those who have suffered need to suffer so that others can prosper.
