I must apologize if I have come across as abrasive or self-righteous in my views expressed to the public to which I may have upset some people. I have no desire to see mobs at my doorstep wanting my head, however, I am also, not afraid. I have never been politically correct and quite possibly, may never come to that mindset. I sincerely have no desire to get into politics, become a preacher in some institution or anything close to these avenues.

My only real intention was, or is, to elicit discussion on the imbalances, I believe, are in society. And these are simply my views as to how I see the world and what I believe the Lord has shown me to be truths, although veiled through my flesh and blood or human eyes. I cannot force my thoughts down anyone’s throats and realize acceptance. When I look at society, and I spend a lot of time looking, compared to what I believe to be truths and consequences identified by the Lord, in the inspired texts, inside and outside the accepted canon, I cannot help myself and feel compelled to shout it out. Your thoughts, words and actions are yours, and yours alone.

I must thank Mr. Kully, Mr. Protegeros and L. Cenaiko for their responses to my views. Perhaps in some small way, I have opened up discussion. Like many of us, we leap before we look. Have Mr. Kully or Mr. Protegeros actually taken the time to search out the UBUNTU Liberation Movement to see what they are actually about (It’s not that I totally accept in totality this movement, however, the philosophy and articles open up discussion); read the Bible or research the atrocities with genetics or the advent of money before they made these comments? Like the majority of us in society, we take things for granted, as shown to us via education, media and religion.

I am at the mercy of the St. Albert Gazette should they wish to publish two final letters I have submitted prior to me writing this one, as I cannot add more of my thoughts. The final two letters may not come across as politically correct and I may upset some individuals or institutions for which I apologize in advance to any offences.

May God be with you.

Greg Jackman, St. Albert
