Bloggers,again from the idiot Vore. Notice how stupid and shallow this bastard is when condemning the Methodist Church whilst his co-Chair on the NCBBF is none other than Mataca, the head of the Catholic Church!!! At least you have Rev. Tuikilakila standing up to the illegal regime, despite his leaderships stance in previous coups, but here we have Arch Bishop Mataca silently acquiescencing and condoning everything Vore and the illegal junta is doing, supported by both Fathers Arms and the other Father by gutting the Constitution. What hypocrites!!! You will pay for your sins says SV!!!

INTERIM Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama should not worry about affairs of the church but worry about the ailing economy, says the Soqosoqo Duavata ni Lewenivanua party.
Spokesman Peceli Kinivuwai said Commodore Bainimarama should tell the head of the Catholic Church in Fiji, Archbishop Petero Mataca, to refrain from getting involved in the People’s Charter. “It would be in the best interest of Mr Bainimarama to get us out of the economic decline rather than stick his nose in the affairs of the Methodist Church,” said Mr Kinivuwai. “It would be best for him to tell Archbishop Mataca to refrain from getting involved and hoodwinking on the charter.”
Commodore Bainimarama said the usual tactics of manipulating and hoodwinking ordinary people was being practised by the leaders of the Methodist Church, some chiefs and SDL executives and supporters. “They are trying to hang on to the last straw as we make in-roads into giving a real voice and say to ordinary people in the country,” he said.
“Naturally, there are some power-hungry nationalist SDL leaders and followers, supported by the leadership of the Methodist Church and some chiefs who do not want ordinary people to be empowered in terms of decision making and aspiring for better things in life.
“They want to continue to remain in power and in the process ensure that the common people remain disenfranchised.” Commodore Bainimarama urged members of the public to take advantage of the awareness creation and consultation process on the charter. Mr Kinivuwai said the SDL party did not manipulate the church.
“When they (chiefs) went to make the presentation they went as direct descendants of those who accepted Christianity in Fiji,” he said. “That gesture was a sign of reconfirming the bond between the vanua and the church.
“What they were able to do was in their traditional role to tell the church that their support was still there, has never wavered or changed and it has remained solid as ever. “The SDL has never tried to interfere in the affairs of the church. The, SDL has its own credible people and the church has its own.
“The church leaders are very professional people and do not need political parties. That statement is disrespectful as far as the commander is concerned.” Mr Kinivuwai called on the commodore to hold the election. “If he says it is our last straw then he should call the election tomorrow.
“He will see where the people’s support lie. “The charter is unconstitutional and does not reflect good governance, fairness and transparency. We will only support what is legal and constitutional.” “We have always stated from the beginning that the SDL is not out to get political mileage but to show that we are upholding the Constitution.”
