Forum sermons

It was all too predictable that that Friday Forum’s [FF] latest “sermon” should begin with sycophantic praise of the new regime. For many months I have been observing, with a cynical eye, the sermons of these right-wing preachers. I hope, dear Editor, you will permit me to air my observations, which may, however, veer away from ‘political correctness’.

The most striking feature is their snobbish distance from the Sinhala Buddhist majority. Not a single Buddhist monk sullies their ranks – though minority [ethnic, religious] representatives are very much there. Sadly, too many of these preachers have families cozily domiciled in the West. Others are financial beneficiaries of international agencies, NGOs and Western universities.
How dare these dubious characters preach to us ‘goday yakos’?
‘Cynic’
