Trinidad and Tobago is fast becoming a society of great inequality. Simply put, there are those who live with material abundance and those who have to fight to provide the basics for their families such as food and shelter.
As the economy struggles along, we will face the painful truth, from theological and humanitarian perspectives, of the widening gap between the ‘haves’ and the ‘have-nots’.
We cannot pretend the inequality gap isn’t there; we cannot forget that while some climb the economic ladder through greed, corruption and dishonesty, others are slowly slipping into the poverty trap. This socioeconomic fact ought to leave every Christian and all people of good-will uneasy.
