The parish priest Las Mercedes churchFrankeli Rodríguez, called this Thursday for the unity of all Dominicans to face the evils that affect society.
During the homily of the solemn mass of Corpus Christithe religious made a special call to the opposition to make proposals for solutions to the evils that gravitate in society.
“Many times we believe that the country belongs to Louis Abinader, no, the country belongs to everyone, and we believe that we should leave all the problems to the president,” Rodríguez said.
He stated that the same thing happens in many homes where children ignore responsibilities and leave everything to their parents, such as utility payments and appliance repairs.
“This is also happening in this country, that we want to leave all the problems and blame the president, nooooo, I am Dominican, you are Dominican, we have to stop this and it is between all of us,” he added.
He argued that one opposition politics is not just to criticize the government and not contribute anything to the country.
“I invite the opposition to give concrete ideas, I invite the opposition to say what needs to be done in order to eradicate violence because it is something that is worrying us all: you can’t be in the gallery of your house, you can’t go for a walk, you can’t go out with your son or your mother to give him a little walk,” he criticized.
He affirmed that insecurity is an evil that affects everyone, with its roots in the family, which is a reflection of society because in a family of peace, there is no violence.
