Knights of St. John, GHANCYC ‘fight’ loudmouth Kevin Taylor for insulting Bishops

The Knights of St. John International and the Ghana National Catholic Youth Council, (GHANCYC) are up in arms against social media commentator Kevin Taylor for insulting members of the Catholic  Bishops’ Conference.

Kevin Taylor in a recent video that went viral alleged that the Catholic Bishops behaved like politicians and attributed same to them to being sex-starved.

His attack followed media reports that suggested that the Bishops were ready to mount a campaign against the NDC after the party failed to append its signature to a pact aimed at disbanding political vigilantes in the country.

The Knights of St. John International and the Ghana National Catholic Youth Council in separate press releases have condemned what they describe as unwarranted insults on the leaders of the Church and have declared support for the hinted actions to be taken against political parties who fail to disband vigilantes.

”The Ghana National Catholic Youth Council, the umbrella body of all Catholic Youth in Ghana write to condemn the politics of insults by freelance journalist Kelvin Taylor which is being circulated on social media and some media houses concerning the Ghana Catholic Bishops Conference position that the church will campaign against any political party that does not demonstrate commitment to Ending Vigilantism in Ghana,”
”We wish to categorically state that the youth of the Catholic Church in Ghana is in firm solidarity with our bishops in their efforts to ensure that violence is eliminated from partisan politics in Ghana,” the youth group said.

While condemning the use of foul language in the video by Kevin Taylor, the KSJI stated their “unflinching support for our Bishops and clergy in general and encourage them to disregard such distractive comments and remain focused on their individual and collective efforts towards shepherding their flock, as well as helping promote peace and good governance in the country. They have done this effectively and successfully in the past  and should continue to do the same in spite of all the distractions.”

    We stand with our Bishops regardless of our political affiliations. Disband vigilantism now or we join our Bishops’ campaign against any political party that will not support this worthy cause.
