"The benefits [of the resurrection] and innumerable.  To list a few: Our illnesses don't seem nearly so final; Our fears fade and lose their grip; Our grief over those who have done on is diminished; Our desires to press on in spite of the obstacles is rejuvenated...Our identity as Christians is strengthened as we stand in the lengthening shadows of saints down through the centuries, who have always answered back in antiphonal voice" He is risen, indeed".  Quote by Charles Swindoll

Greetings On-Line Family and Happy Easter to all of you.  

This past Wednesday, April 4th,  39 years ago was the saddest day in American history.  This was the day the life of a great man and a great leader was selfishly taken.  Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was gunned down by James Earl Ray in Memphis, Tennessee, while he was preparing to lead a march for sanitation workers protesting against low wages and poor working conditions.  He was shot as he stood on a  hotel balcony and died soon thereafter.

This was the day all of America, actually all black Americans and many around the world cried and mourned for this exceptional man who contributed to the civil rights movement, who was successful in turning protests into crusades and to translating local conflicts to moral issues nationwide, and ultimately worldwide.  This man with his non-violent leadership and tactics succeeded with opening America's eyes and successfully breaking the segregation laws of the south, and most importantly attained racial and economic justice for blacks.  

On this sad day many cried, while others expressed their emotion by angrily exploding.   100s of United States cities, and Dozens of major U.S. cities such as Washington DC, Chicago, Los Angeles, Detroit, Pittsburgh, Tennessee, New York, etc. was rocked by an escalation in race riots.    

On this sad day President Lyndon Johnson addressed the nation by saying "I ask every citizen to reject the blind violence that has taken Dr. King who lived by non-violence".    

On this sad day, and the sad hours and days to follow, due to these riots several people lost their lives, several thousands were injured,  large amounts of our businesses were set ablaze, and their were lots of lootings and shootings.  Black America was clearly very angry about the assassination of their black civil rights leader and it was too much for many to bear.  Many from Dr.  King's team addressed the nation and repeatedly appealed for calm and even urged folks to respect our murdered leader's commitment to non-violent protest.  However others were hurt and was deeply angry such as Lincoln Lynch the United Black Front Chairman, he felt black America should adopt a new stance and stated "it is imperative to abandon the unconditional non-violent concept expounded by Dr. King and adopt the position that for every Martin Luther King who falls, 10 white racists will go down with him"  he further stated "there is no other way America understand no other language"

As a result curfews were implemented in many areas around the country and the National Guard soldiers were mobilized to help with the violence which was threatening to engulf the US in this race war.  

On this day - April 4th, 39 years ago in 1968 was indeed the saddest day for all Black Americans and many around the world, it was the beginning of a dark period in our lives and in American History, and a day we all will never forget.  Folks felt their only hope for racial economic and justice, as well as equality for all in America was taken away.

Dr. King's life was not taken in vain though, because many of his dreams indeed come true...we do have equal rights!!!!

As I think further though and analyze this crime epidemic which is plaguing our communities, I am afraid that some of what he worked for  are surly  "chipping" away.

Before I close out, let me share an important issue that is taking place regarding Sir Elton John headlining the 2nd Plymouth Jazz Festival taking place in Tobago at the end of this month.

 

  Sir Elton John, pop/ rock singer, composer, pianist, multi Grammy and Academy award winner recently celebrated his 60th birthday in New York City at Madison Square Garden.  Sir Elton John is also slated to headline the Plymouth Jazz Festival in Tobago at the end of this month, along with Diana Ross, Mary J. Blige and Earth, Wind &  Fire, and several other very popular artists.  However, his appearance is citing a lot of controversy throughout the twin islands - from Conservative Groups on the islands who are fighting to have Sir Elton John banned from performing at the festival due to his openly gay lifestyle.   Heading the campaign against Elton John is Archdeacon Philip Isaac for Trinidad and Tobago said Elton John's lifestyle does not conform to "biblical teachings."  "He needs to be ministered unto," Isaac said. "His visit to the island can open the country to be tempted towards pursuing his lifestyle."

Festival executive Anthony Maharaj said the singer's performance and his private life should be mutually exclusive, adding that John's concert would proceed even if church groups protest outside the event, the Independent said. "Elton John is coming as what he is, one of the world greatest performers," Maharaj said. "He is not coming here to preach about what lifestyle people should have."

Below you will find a recently written article for Trinidad's Sunday Guardian about this interesting controversy by our attorney and friend from Trinidad Mr. Martin George.  Go ahead and check out his article below and let us know your thoughts ariousentertainment@earthlink.net.

WELCOME SIR ELTON

by Martin George

 

I have deliberately chosen not to comment as yet on the Chief Justice/Chief Magistrate conflagration, preferring to wait until a bit more information is revealed and opting to let the other commentators, soothsayers and political pundits have their say at this time.  

...   ...

 

On a lighter note however, I will give my thoughts and views on the protests and objections which have been made against the impending visit  of Sir Elton John to our shores. This proposed visit has been denounced by some misguided, misinformed and mischievous persons in Tobago, led by a rag-tag, pick-up side of deposed ex-Politicians, preachers, protagonists and agents provocateur.

 

These persons have raised their voices in protest against Sir Elton John as the headline act for the Plymouth Jazz Festival which Festival has set the standard across the region as far as the quality of high caliber acts it attracts each year, due in no small part to the financial backing of CL Financial and in this regard we have indeed blazed a trail and have left others in the region reeling in our wake. What then is the fundamental basis for these objections to Sir Elton John coming here? If he was coming here simply as a visitor to holiday in Tobago, would these persons still be protesting? The protestors who apparently have little else to do with their time and talents, are protesting primarily because of his lifestyle and because he is a gay man who has been open about his feelings in this regard. Their spurious argument goes on to suggest that he will negatively influence and corrupt the morals of citizens by his mere presence here.

 

Separate and apart from the fact of these protestors making moral and other judgments and indictments, it is such a patently false and fallacious argument, because it ignores the fact that we have on a daily basis thousands of gay people living, working, existing, creating and being productive and successful members of the society here in T&T, and this applies to Tobago also, there are gay people living, working and existing in Tobago too. So what's the big deal? Are we as a nation seeking to regress to an openly homophobic stance whereby we shun and eschew all gay people and begin treating them as outcasts? If so, then we would lose hundreds of our media workers, in television, print and radio. We would also lose some of our more talented and creative persons in the arts, entertainment and service industry. We would lose some of our doctors, lawyers, accountants, judges, teachers and preachers. Yes preachers too, so those preachers who are protesting better start looking amongst their own for the beam in their own eyes before they start looking for the mote in others. Who can forget the contentious and highly fractious appointment last year of openly gay Bishop Gene Robinson in the Anglican Church? So lets stop pretending, the point is that there are those among us who choose an alternate lifestyle and the rest of us ought to not target or harass them simply for that. Our society has developed to the stage where there are so many gay people who work, live and play side by side with us that it really become ridiculous to object to Elton Johns presence simply because he is also gay.

 

Some of the pastors and preachers who are protesting need to examine their own hearts, souls and minds and realize that when Jesus came onto the earth, he welcomed and embraced those whom society may otherwise have shunned and treated as an outcast, Mary Magdalene, the prostitute, Zacharay, the Tax Collector, he interacted with the deaf, the dumb, the blind and the lame. Jesus did not discriminate then and he certainly would not discriminate now so who are these Pastors and preachers really following as their role model? One can understand if as a statement, they say that their personal choice is that they eschew and disapprove of the gay lifestyle and don't want it for themselves, their children or their friends and relatives, but it is another thing to be openly discriminatory of persons simply because of the fact that they are gay, when they are just going on about their own business lawfully and not interfering with anyone. This is irrational and not acceptable. Jamaica is openly homophobic like that and Jamaicans accept that it is okay to engage in gay bashing and gay beatings and the like, but Trinidad and Tobago is not a society like that and we really should not gravitate towards that type of stance.

 

We all enjoy a Minshall production, a Wendell Manwarren performance and a Richard Ragoobarsingh or Raymond Choo Kong play, why cant we similarly enjoy an Elton john concert without making moral judgments on the lifestyle of the artiste? It is quite a hypocrisy because we have grown up on his music and enjoyed it over all the years, in Lion King, on television and in music videos  knowing full well that he was gay, so how come this suddenly becomes an issue? We have known for decades that Elton John and Bernie Taupin have been the most prolific and successful songwriting duo of the Twentieth Century with hits such as Border Song, Rocket Man, Come Down in Time, Crocodile Rock, Daniel, Levon, Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me, Sacrifice, Burn Down the Mission and Tonight among others and we did not enjoy the music any less because Elton was gay.

 

Sir Elton has made us laugh, he has made us cry, he has entertained us, teased us, thrilled and outraged us over time and his signature flamboyant outfits and outlandish sunglasses have been his trademark and his imprimatur as much as his high quality excellent music over the generations. He is coming here to perform his music and no matter what we think of his chosen lifestyle, we can still appreciate his music and have a good time and it is certainly a bonus, a boon and a boost to the Plymouth Jazz Festival that they can get him here to perform for us, and all of T&T should indeed say, Welcome Sir Elton.
