Council 'concerned'

Luke Nacei
Wednesday, January 31, 2018

THE Fiji Council of Churches (FCC) is greatly concerned about the recent desecration occurring in places of worships over the past few weeks.

A statement from the FCC general secretary, Reverend Iliesa Naivalu, urged members of Christian churches to respect and revere places of worships of other religions.

"Our church teaches that we show our respect and tolerance towards those of other faiths and that we need to respect and love all people irrespective of creed, race or culture," Mr Naivalu said.

"Church members are therefore requested to conduct themselves in a manner worthy of the standard of being a sound Christian and a law-abiding citizen of our beloved country."

Mr Naivalu said this illegal action could create ill feelings among individuals.

"We also call on parents and community leaders to talk to their children and youths, to stay out of activities that would create antagonism and ill-feelings among our citizens."
