Your quote, (want change) "DO THEY REALLY KNOW AND UNDERSTAND EVERY SINGLE SOULS OF THE PEOPLE AS THE PRIESTS DO?" - Correction - God knows the souls of people, because he is the Master of our souls. Priest are mere human beings with their own weaknesses and frailties, as such i doubt your comment.

Every citizen of PNG is given the freedom by the constitution to contest the national elections and a priest is no exception. An Enga son (a priest) can rise up to the challenge to contest the national elections, there is no doubt about that.

The standard of leadership the good book (Holy Bible) sets is of a "Servant Leadership". Jesus washed the feet of Peter, to show him that, to be a leader, you have to serve others. I agree that the priest are with the people. Take the church away from the people and the people have nothing. Most of the basic services like; aid-post, school, vocational centres, universities, roads etc are provided by the church. Churches in PNG are taking the leading role in bringing services to our local people. It is the churches that are close to the people than the politicians, as such, why should you remove a man of the frock from his people and isolate him in Port Moresby, where the bottleneck becomes an ordeal of frustration. Many have had great visions to bring development to the people, but to no avail because, once they get in, they find out the reality. It seems so easy from the outside, but once you are in the playing field you find yourself getting lost in the jungles of corruption and whom-you-know mentality.

Furthermore your point about wolf in sheep skin should apply to all, even man of the frock. Jesus was the only man that had no sin. He was perfect man and God. Because someone is a man of the frock does not justify holiness, faithfulness, honesty etc. All man have sinned and fallen short of the Glory of God. I would therefore, refute your claim about others contesting might come as wolf in sheep skin. This statement should cover all, even the man of the frock. It is the people of Enga who would be the judge of the day. The people are the ones who would have the opportunity to remove the sheep skin and find out the truth about a person.

I still stand by my view, that priest should be priest, not getting their frocks wriggled in politics.
