AN article on the Front page of Tuesday's print edition was incorrectly headlined "Accept secularism".

The article and headline were based on comments from Methodist Church president Reverend Tevita Nawadra.

The Methodist Church in Fiji says it is not in support of secularism but is willing to work and carry out her mission within the perimeters of Fiji being a secular state.

It says a secular state, which implies, according to the current government, separation of religion and the State, is a non-issue in the mission of the Methodist Church to spread scriptural and social holiness throughout Fiji. It is also very different from the social phenomenon of "secularism" which we consider out of date as a modern concept in a post-modern world and inappropriate for Fiji which straddles both pre-modernity, modernity and post-modernity.

We apologise for the error and any inconvenience caused.
