    Oh...at last, she has done something good for the country. But I am still sure what her true intentions are, provided her row with Mahinda.

    Mr Bishop,

    Stop using the electricity from the national grid!!

    You guys were the Biggest obstacle of science and technology of the world.

    How many `Witches` you guys killed during past 2000 years in the name of God????

    How many scientists were forced to stop talking about their discoveries???

    According to you people, earth was CREATED 10,000 years ago! Theory of evolution is false! Birth controll also bad. Thousands of poor Africans die of AIDS, because your Pope insist that using condoms is a sin!!

    Ask your Jehovah to say `let there be light` and we will have light without coal power!

    Cheers

    This is a one single priest. Lucky that he wasn`t a Hamuduruwo. Otherwise there would be thousands of comments here saying that, Chuvanist buddhist monks are clutching the development etc. etc. etc...

    Lets not bring a religious slanging to this!

    But it`s sad that the Bishop is blinded `green conservatonism!`.

    Why cant he understand that if we dont build this Coal plant, next drought in will bring colombo to a standstill! Every wehre you will see generators clogging up the air! And the wealthy putting up generators in thier houses!

    Whether it`s the Coal plant in N`chole or generators in Colombo, the environment will be damaged! Actually much less with a coal plant!

    And the CEB cannto stop with this plant, they will continue in Habnabthota and then in T`male! Becasue we have exhuased all out hydro power capabilities!

    CEB enginees very well asked the two political partities to keep the coal plant out of their political agenda! Why cant Ranil and the Bishop listen!

    This is pure selfishness!

    Rukshan,

    It is not any sort of conservation.

    It is the hands of big businesses, selling power to CEB. The religion or anything like that has nothing to do with it. Currently, a lot of power businesses make money by selling power to CEB, while CEB is selling it back to its customers with a subsidy. Had the coal power plant being built, these people loose business. These things are not said by me, are words of Mr. Ranjith Fonseka of CEB, who himself is a good Christian.

    This Catholic bishop ought to be slapped for being a complete and utter twit. Does this Marcus Fernando think electricity will magically fall from the sky when he says amen? These Christian priests should stick to their churches and preach their gospel instead of trying to stick their fat noses into national affairs. I am amazed at how backward these bishops are, first it was screaming and wailing about condoms, then women priests, then homointimacyuality, then the `anti-conversion bill` and now this. Just what is their problem? They should learn to keep their fundamentalism to themselves instead of embarassing both themselves and the church with their retarded behaviour. This idiot Marcus Fernando should keep his royal posterior in the church instead of spreading hatred and vitriol with his fanaticism. Maybe he has run out of altar boys to abuse?

    This is what we`re seeing in Sri Lanka. It never went away after independence. The Catholic church was busy trying to put down other communities and thinking only of themselves before independence, and nothing has changed.

    Rev.-bishop FERNANDO,

    As a roman catholic Sri Lankan and having tow priests (R.C) in my own family, i would like you to remind that your job is to preach the god`s message and not to interfere GOSL Affairs.

    Yea,Being a Catholic myself I too think that the Bishop should have stayed away from this issue.They should not fall into the category of JHU monks.
