Materialism, stimulated mostly by tourism, deeply affects all levels of society. Lowering standards of morality see a rise in births out of wedlock, drug use and violent crime (especially armed robbery). The staggering wealth of foreign residents and tax shelters display a different world from the average Bahamian, not to mention the even poorer Haitian immigrants. Pray for social righteousness and a government that works to serve all strata of society.
