Methodist Church and Fijian Politics 101

June 16, 2009

 

How important is the Bose ko Viti or Annual Fiji Methodist Conference to Fijians, is it just the funds pledged or soli misinari ?Much as we like to believe in modern western democracy and one of its pillars-the separation of state politics and the church, in Fiji the separation is much more complex with the lewe ni lotu Waisele.

    The separation of Church and State, in normal circumstances, I suggest, empowers both bodies more so, to do their own bidding on vastly differing topics.
    But these are not normal circumstances and the structure of Government has been disrupted by criminal elements by people of all persuasions, interestingly !
    Some are white, some not so white, some Indian, some not so Indian, some Fijian, some not Fijian, some honest and well meaning, others not so honest and well meaning, some with a criminal past, some not with a criminal past, some egotistical, maniacal and eccentric, some not, some Methodist, some Catholic, some Hindi and others Islamic.
    Some self obsessed, others not so self obsessed.
    The real traitors in any Military coup, are the Soldiers who continue to support those superior officers who have committed treason.
    Without those soldiers, the coup could not take place and inevitably, it is those very same foot soldiers, who can bring this coup to an end.
    The Church indeed has it’s place under these circumstances and must make a stand for the people, Freedom, Liberty, Democracy and Justice for all the people, no matter their creed, colour or ancestry.
    The church stands for all of god’s children.
