Following the news that Tommy Lee Sparta was denied entry into Dominica on Sunday February 23rd, the religious circles in Dominica have said that their prayers have been answered.

Chairman of the Northern Pastors Fellowship, Pastor Randy Rodney, who was vocal in protesting against the artiste coming to Dominica, said he is elated that Tommy Lee was denied access into the country.

He said although the public had a choice whether or not to attend the show, the religious community had the option to speak against such an artiste performing in Dominica, with what he described as demonic and criminal musical lyrics in his songs.

Pastor Rodney noted, when it comes to the overall responsibility of the community, someone has to take action and make decisions to preserve the environment.

Meanwhile, Parish Priest of the Portsmouth Roman Catholic Church, Fr. Herman Sharplis, who was also vocal against the artiste performing here, also welcomed the decision to deny Tommy Lee entry into Dominica.

He added the Church has the option to protest against things that undermine their beliefs.

The Government of Dominica, through the Ministry of National Security broke its silence on the matter on Monday February 24th, releasing a brief statement saying and I quote, “Pursuant to advice received, Government had concerns for public safety. The decision to deny entry was intended as a pre-emptive action and also to provide an opportunity to exhaust all efforts to clarify information received,” end quote.

However, organizer of the Tommy Lee concert, Mr. Cabral Douglas says, the artiste was in no way a threat to the public.

Tommy Lee was deported from Dominica on the evening of Monday February 24th 2014.
