COUN­CIL PLANS CHURCH WATCH:

Fiji Sun - - Comment -

Simione Tugi

I be­lieve ev­ery­thing should be reg­u­lated, there must be some con­troll some­where and if not the law of the jun­gle will take con­troll. If i am not happy with my Pas­tor, Democ­racy can al­low me to start another Church. That is why we have about 72 dif­fer­ent Chri­tian de­nom­i­na­tions in Fiji now be­cause there is no con­troll. Few new churches has started lately be­cause as­sis­tant pas­tors are not happy with the wages they re­ceived from their church and they take some mem­bers to start a new church. Fi­jian com­mu­nity now are more di­vided be­cause of the de­nom­i­na­tion bar­ri­ers. Vil­lages use to have only one or two de­nom­i­na­tions now have 6 or 7. We de­finetly need the Govern­ment to con­troll this and close down all churches who are not regis­tered un­der the Re­li­gious ACT.
