Baird blasts ‘bullies’
OUTSPOKEN CLERIC Reverend Dr Lucille Baird has thrown her support behind embattled Cabinet minister Dr Denis Lowe who has vowed to resign rather than support gender-neutral legislation on domestic violence.
And she has labelled those who have lambasted the minister for his stance as bullies.
Baird, who is in charge of the Mount Zion Mission Temple in Rock Dundo, St James, was speaking at a service to mark the launch of 16 Days of Activism by the Bureau of Gender Affairs yesterday. Running from November 25 to December 10, the 16 Days of Activism is an international campaign which seeks to raise awareness about gender-based violence.
Baird said there were militants and bullies who were seeking to undermine the spiritual fabric of the island.
