                      learnt, there are a thousand and one reasons why every                            That’s my question!

                      going to march, what would you say?                                               mental torture that men think they can apply to discipline

                      agree with me on this: Guma might you know what Romans                            So, just because of that other men should stand up and say:
                      10:12 says?                                                                       No! This doesn’t happen in our town. We won’t accept this

                      affection and take delight in honouring each other.”                              that you get proper police protection so that it’s peaceful…

                  violence. I am FOR peace and harmony – on the streets, at
                  home, in our communities.

227.   IMAM:      Yes indeed O/C!

228.   MIKE:      So, can I say that the police are giving the march a green
                  light, OC?

229.   O/C:       Mike, you can tell the people of Rock Point that we will see
                  to it that peace prevails on the march. And that every man
                  who turns up on the day will be voting to protect and
                  honour his wife and family. As a policeman, if I am not
                  protecting the community, what am I doing?

230.   PASTOR:    I agree, O/C. That has reminded of what the apostle Paul
                  wrote to the Romans; our sons are doomed by their fathers’
                  bad examples. Let that NOT happen in Rock Point.

232.   ALL:       AFFIRMING

233.   SOLOMON:   (JOCULAR) It’s true, Pastor. So men who come and march
                  will also be standing up for their sons and showing that
                  they also have a future.
