Press Statement by The Progressive Young Liberals regarding the recent Bahamaspress Posts.
By Aarone Sargent
As the nation embarks on another new school semester the Progressive Young Liberals supports any initiative that protects our nation’s treasure it’s YOUTH. In that light the PYL denounces the recent Press Statements released by one of our executives, in which he rebuked Rev. Simeon Hall for his comments relating to the proper vetting for teachers to ensure that ‘Sexual Predators’ are kept far from our Classrooms. The press release was not an official PYL statement on this matter. In fact our position not only supports Rev. Hall’s sentiments, the arguments also should be to protect our students from any negative element that would affect their growth and development.
Our mandate as the youth organ of the Progressive Liberal Party is centered on the uplifting and empowerment of our nation’s youth. We will always support any initiative that develops our youth as we have done in the past on numerous occasions whether it is speaking about this present government’s decision to cut back on the guaranteed education loan scheme, supporting our former chairwoman, Hon. Glenys Hanna-Martin calling for a proper investigation regarding the death of a minor while in police custody.
PYL is working continuously to build our branches, strengthening our numbers and providing youth in all constituencies a chance to express their views on their country. As we continue to grow we urge all Young people to join us, speak up and let your voice heard; only then the change we seek for the betterment of our beloved country can be realized.

Let me get this straight, what the PLP/PYL is saying is that 9it0 supports a public agenda to not only label ALL GAYS as pedophiles but to discriminate against all future teachers based on their sexual preference and further deem them deviants without facts, evidence and knowledge?????
DON’T HIRE GAYS AS TEACHERS???
Then where will that stop, where will the discrimination end. Who will stop employers from refusing to hire Bank tellers, Office Clerks, Sales Attendants based on personal preference????
WHY NOT REVERT TO NOT HIRING BLACKS BECAUSE WE’RE LESS EDUCATED!!!
The PLP and this website are sadly out of touch and obviously ignorant to the core!
I think the Bishop called for tolerance for gays. Which is totally different from calling for a clean up of the schools of mentally unstable, devious, sick teachers who prey on our young, vulnerable students, who by the way are the future of the nation.
BP PLEASE TELL ME OR CLEAR THIS UP FOR US,A FEW MONTHS AGO, THE BISHOP MADE A VERY BOLD STATEMENT AND SAID THAT GAY PEOPLE SHOULD NOT BE DIS-CREAMINATED AGAINST NOW HE COME RIGHT BACK AFTER THAT AND SAY THIS,EVEN HAD A KNOWN GAY FUNERAL AT HIS CHURCH TO BACK UP HIS BOLD STATEMENT IN THE PRESS !!! I BELIVE IF YOU ARE GOING TO STAND FOR SOMETHING “STAND”AND STOP FLOPING BP PLEASE SAY SOMETHING ON THIS SUBJECT MATTER.
AND FOR THOSE WHO MESS WITH CHILDREN WEATHER GAY OR NOT!! NEED TO BE PUT TO SLEEP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
