Griffith blasts Paul over BFPA stance
FORMER EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR of the Barbados Family Planning Association (BFPA), George Griffith, has dismissed Father Clement Paul’s call for the association to apologise for the success of its programmes.
Griffith, a 23-year veteran of the BFPA, said Roman Catholic priest Paul was out of his depth on the issue and had “fallen behind in his thinking with regard to social development”.
The retired social worker defended the BFPA, formed in 1954, as having done a wonderful job and said there was more work to be done.
He said rather than being critical of the BFPA, thanks should be expressed for the development of families and the social and economic development of the island over the years. (LK)
