Father Ho Lung – Under Fire For Speaking the Truth

So Father Ho Lung like any other citizen utilized his constitutional right to be critical of Lisa Hanna.

 The father criticized the minister for a controversial swimwear photo and used these words in a recent Gleaner post:

“To me, Lisa Hanna is the disappointment of the year (2014), our minister of youth and culture. I am reminded of Lucifer’s fall from heaven. I hope that our youth will not follow her example.”

Naturally he is now under fire by those who support the sexy figure of Minister Hanna and could care less about HOW SHE HAS PERFORMED in her capacity as Minister of Youth.


I have known Father Ho Lung since my younger days of attending Catholic schools  in Jamaica, and I have known him to be a man of PEACE and INTEGRITY.

As a matter of fact, what he has done along with fellow priests for the POOR and DISENFRANCHISED in Jamaica speaks volumes.

To see the level of VITRIOL being hurled at him also speaks volumes.

It highlights the HYPOCRISY of many of us who call ourselves Jamaicans.

We will defend our POLITICIANS at what ever cost even when the reality is that they have FAILED US.

Like it or not Lisa Hanna has failed miserably in her role as Minister of Youth. Lest we forget she was voted as one of the worst ministers in the WORLD.

As her fans continue to go ‘ga ga’ and ‘goo goo’ over her beauty, the question remains what is SHE doing about the DISENFRANCHISED youth in Jamaica?


Having a BEAUTIFUL body is quite fine, but her days as BEAUTY QUEEN are over, now she needs to engage her brain and do what she is being paid by TAX PAYERS’ money to do.

Now were she working elsewhere, she would have long ago been fired, as companies want to make MONEY.

They don’t want former beauty queens sitting on their ‘you know what’ doing nothing.

Now COMMON SENSE dictates that were Ms.Hanna performing in her capacity as Minister of Youth as she should be doing, there would be no need for the criticism.

So do not be angry at Father Ho Lung for stating his OPINION.

That is his right under the constitution. Blame the Minister who spends more time on Instagram defending her BEAUTY than she does working in her capacity as MINISTER OF YOUTH.

Blame her for not having the fortitude to step up and do a GREAT JOB. Blame her for taking on a position which she clearly cannot manage, and blame the Prime Minister for actually placing her in that position.

We understand that Lisa is not performing well as a minister however that was not what Father Ho Lung was talking about . He was nothing speaking the truth. I understand Lisa isnt perfoming and i have no problem identifying that. So what if she look pretty

The original aim of this article was not to criticize her performance as a minister. It was to address Father Ho Lung’s comment on the picture she posted. I see what you did there, posting her picture as a means of getting people to read an article that really isn’t about Father Lung’s opinion on her attire at all…But I can understand why you did it, without her picture nobody would have even bothered to read it..

And this man who his a priest, he should take a page from Pope Francis. The Catholics have so many issues, he needs to pick one, instead of judging and and condemning this young Lisa Hanna. Father Ho Lung, the good minister did not sign up to be a Catholic Nun.

Lisa is a human, not God. I don’t feel Father Ho Long should have even looking at these photos in the first place to cause him to criticize her. I was just wondering what did she wear when she was representing Jamaica in the Pageant. we only support people when it suits us. She was a beauty queen before a Minister and you all knew that before you voted for her. So cut the bull and accept the woman for who she is. no one would have ever hear how she not doing a good job, if she did not… Read more »

The fact that the minister is a shapely and fit looking woman has nothing to do with her failing as the minister of youth and culture. So being at the beach requires beach wear and that is what she has on and she cannot be blamed for looking good. She might not be the best minister there is but dont blame her for looking damn good. You were all proud of her when she brought home the Miss World crown, problem is our memory is too short.

I think Lisa Hanna is doing poorly at her job, but so is father ho lung by slinging insults like that. Comparing the woman to “lucifer’s fall from heaven”?? What? She is on the frickin beach. I am not a fan of hers but comparing her to satan is a bit much.

Her ability as a minister is not the issue here.

yes i would agree that she is a failure as a minister but that has nothing to do with the photo she took on her downtime.. she really needs to do sumn for the “Gettho youths’ and underprivileged tho.

Michelle Elaine LaPorte

He who throws stones should be prepared when they come hurling back. Perhaps he is just being his ungodly vindictive self because of Miss Hanna’s past actions hmmmm http://jamaica-gleaner.com/gleaner/20140418/lead/lead3.html

I think this is one of the best thing Lisa Hanna has ever done bringing back the minds of men ( males) “in which some totally forgot” the beauty the essence of a women. Blame her where she’s to be blame but Wow!! For this one. I’m totally with her 100%. Love you Lisa!

My comment is to Michelle Bradshaw, seeing you support father Ho lung you should differentiate on what basis you are expressing your views. Ms Hanna has come in for a lot of criticism from all sector of society, as a Minister and as former beauty queen. To say she has failed as a Minister is not fair because the whole government has failed Jamaica so to single her out is not fair, to criticise her for posting a sexy picture of herself is pure jealouses there are no rules which state as a minister you should not be proud of… Read more »

The heading of your article “Father Ho Lung under fire for speaking the truth” peaked my interest! I thought the content of your witting would reflect Ho’s comments but instead you utilize the opportunity to inject your personal distaste for Minister Lisa Hanna. While you may be correct in your assessment of her with regards to her job performance I feel your article misrepresents what it should have been about!!

Omrie Blueblood Samuels

I continue to find this blog to be lacking in analytical empiricism. It is not legitimate for you to use the fact that you attended catholic sch and know Fr. Ho Long as leverage to advance an argument in support of his article. I believe it is not his criticism of her beach wear picture, on the beach that people are upset about, but it is that in lieu of the myriad of disappointments the country saw in 2014, his article identified that picture as the most disappointing. Especially given that there were many other pictures of her in swimwear… Read more »

Father Holung you are the hypocrite and the others who are speaking negative about the photo. Please focus about other things that members on both sides are doing wrong and leave the woman alone. She is a human being and must be allowed to be. She was on the beach GOSH what is wrong with you people. You dont have a life you dont see anything more important to speak about. Stop bashing the lady and move on. You people make me sick.

Raschad Marshall

The article he wrote (if u read it) was not critical of her performance as a minister but was focused only on her beach beach attire, more of a personal attack and that is what sparked the outrage. It lacked substance and intelligence,a rant like that sounded like it was coming from a bitter and resentful person with whom she broke up and left for another man .

Kerriann Surrina Campbell

Father Holung is the HELL here on earth with his Heaven talking. I am sure that Jesus Christ teaches the Kingdom of Heaven and the Kingdom of God in the Gospel of the Kingdom for the POOR. He never speaks about Heaven as AN OFFER because Heaven was never offered unto NO ONE. Blessed are the meek for they shall inherit the earth. If Father Ho Lung really want to do something that is Good, the Good of God he would teaches the POOR to walk with the Only Begotten Son Jesus Christ to receive what Father says He is… Read more »

So, what should the poor minister wear to the beach… i suppose the answer will be a baptismal grown. Lisa Hanna in a swim suit is not a failure. Lisa Hanna as a minister is a failure. So if y’all saying that swim suit should not be worn to the beach is stupid. If you guys are talking about swim suit you talk about swim suit and if you guys are talking about the Minister not fulfilling her job description, you talk about that.

Claudine Smart-Jones

Kmt, he was not focusing so much on her work as a minister as what he deemed inappropriate attire for the minister. For that he is very wrong. She’s free to wear what she wants on the beach.
