‘Stop the hating!’ – Mother of shooting victim

The mother of shooting victim, Simon Lubin, has called on Saint Lucians to stop the hating.

Simon was shot on Grass Street on Saturday.

“Let’s get together and stop the hating. Stop throwing stones and stop going to the obeah man because he is not going to work for you – it is the Almighty that is in charge,” Cynthia Lubin declared.

She called on the ‘church people’ and ‘prayer warriors’ to go out in the ghettoes rather than stay in church and talk.

“Let us evangelise to the young people – they need help,” the mother said.

She called on her son’s attackers to change their lives and look to the Almighty for help in doing so.

Lubin was also critical of her detractors.

She has accused them of taking to Facebook to say the wrong things about her.

“If you all know how to intercede with God and if you all know how to pray and if you all only know the Father I serve how he is working, you all won’t be talking what you all saying on Facebook,” Cynthia Lubin told reporters Monday.

She described her son as a child of favour by the Almighty.

“My child is a child of purpose and no weapon formed against my child shall prosper and every tongue that rises against my child shall be condemned in judgement,” the mother declared.

She said God is in control of her son’s condition.

“ I have no power – no authority – only God,” the mother explained.

She said she was happy for the faith God has given her to go through ‘the battle’.

She explained that her son was ‘fine by the grace of God.’

“Through grace he is okay – he is stable,” the mother disclosed.

Cynthia described herself as someone who is known to be a strong woman in Christ and who will not give up.

“There is a lot of jealousy,” she said in response to a question as to why her son would have been targetted.

However Cynthia declared that everyone has to go at some time but noted that they do not know the day or the hour.

“To all Saint Lucians, especially those praying for my son from overseas – and I want to thank all the church people who are together with me and I want to thank all prayer warriors,” she stated.

The mother explained that she saw her son, Simon, on Saturday morning when she gave him a testimony since God had given her a message for him.

“Anything I vision something it is not fake, so I had already vision a lot of things but to God be the glory – my son is blessed,” Cynthia declared.

    It’s really sad that she’s using her holy fairy tale belief, in this progressive modern day to cover up reasons as to why her son was targeted.

    Lmao…that’s why I left Christianity, instead of praying for it to stop, why don’t we stop it instead? We humans do not survive by praying, it’s by fighting for what’s right; self-preservation and street justice. My mother used to pray for me, and guess what? How is praying in the Ghetto the solution? Get real with yourself

        I am a mother just like you. Your son sent my son home in blood without shoes and a shirt, for just talking. He is known for beating young girls although he is with a high powered lawyer as y’all put it. You know how many people this boy has beaten over the years and threatened. I do not feel that anyone has the right to take another person’s life but………come on when you go to your church pray for him to change his life. Bad boy wanna be beating young boys and girls. Living off people.

      Some of you’ll are insensitive forgiveness is key. Believe me yours might me worse and there is nothing wrong praying in a ghetto. its true the hating must be resolved some you’ll before you’ll see a man talking to a woman that’s their man vice versa you’ll quick to run your mouth. If the guy did one thing wrong who gave u permission to take his life?
      Listen love each other check for each other and stop the damn hating ghetto or no ghetto what goes around comes back at you does not matter where u come from. One more thing if the guy is dead or alive is no one concern if he was a live would u be so concern?

    Mother, you’ve convinced yourself that your boy did nothing wrong and is a victim in all this. Now you’re trying to convince the general public. Your son was targeted for one of his misdeeds, it’s he who needs your god, not any of us.

    why judge and criticize? why create more drama? we are all in the same mess(politics) whether you the culprit or the victim. I’m definitely not commending the wrong doings of the guilty, yet sometimes the guilty are victims too. this is so much deeper than the surface of factual rumors(social media) and what we,each individual think we know. the one who wins is the truth, the liar loses but apparently mankind(lucians) like to lie and to be lied to.

    A speedy recovery to the victims. The hatred here is palpable. Why is there so much raw negative emotions and a lack of love and empathy? Invariably in St. Lucia, when a young man gets shot, it’s because of his involvement in gangs, drugs or some nefarious activity. Some of the unbecoming comments give the perpetrators encouragement to kill. There is no sympathy for the affected. The ugly and unwarranted personal attacks on this already broken hearted mother is the epitome of insensitivity and wickedness. Let’s always endeavor to support others in their time of bereavement for we know not when our turn will come.

    It does not matter why her son is a victim. The mere fact that she is calling for peace and divine love (Stop hating) tells that she is aware that there are problems which need to be addressed. Vigilante justice seems to be prevalent on the island, revenge shooting and murders are not the answer to our problems. At least this mother recognizes that there is a need for calm. Whatever her beliefs are they keep her sane and grounded so it would be good if we support her in an attempt to curb the hate and violence. Let’s not berate her and laugh at her sorrow for one mother’s heartache becomes all others pain. It is high time for the violence to end.Let us instill in our children that hatred begets hatred and problems have never been solved with the bullet. If we say that we are a predominantly Christian society why do we have the propensity to welcome and accept the “eye for an eye” philosophy? isn’t that what the Jesus we claim to worship died on the cross for? Where are the religious pundits in all of this madness? Divine Love to All. Even unto the son of this woman.
