Fiji did it!

Ronnie Chang,

Nadi

First and foremost, we must thank our Fiji Airways 7s gladiators for making amends for a poor outing in Dubai and taking the top spot at the 2018 Cape Town Sevens.

You have put smiles to every single Fijian face.

Congratulations! Simply awesome.

Take a bow.

Blast from the past revisited

Jan Nissar,

Carlton, New South Wales, Australia

I totally agree with Savenaca Vakaliwali­wa that people were misled into voting for a “blast from the past” after being lied to and misrepresented about iTaukei land insecu­rities.

Other contributing factors may have been lies about a Chinese and Muslim invasion, the debt owed to China and the takeover of Kadavu.

My point is, as is Savenaca’s, people freely chose, as is their democratic right, to be blind, deaf and plain dumb in making their choice to vote for the Opposition.

I had expected significantly less than 39 per cent of the voters to make that choice. My mistake.

I still maintain that it is difficult to trust people who speak to God. You see, God can make mistakes on occasion. Case in point is the instruction from God to Rabuka to carry out the events of 1987. Rabuka tells us now that it was a mistake. It follows that God made a mistake, not Rabuka.

The current election result, it appears, is also God’s fault as He did not provide the re­sult that some have been seeing visions and dreams and was prophesied to people who speak to Him.

It will now all happen in God’s time we are told. There is a real anticipation by the blind, deaf and dumb that the election re­sult will be overturned soon.

So what message does one get about people who talk to Him?

My point is, God does not give two cahoots about the politics of Fiji, however much you talk to Him.

Nothing is achieved by being emotional about it.

Separate religion

Taitusi Sokiveta,

Phoenix, Arizona, USA

We need to separate religion from politics, Parliament and Government so Govern­ment can do their jobs without interference from religion, soothsayers, fortune tellers, voodoism, satanic groups, occults and fa­natics.

The United States government, from the White House, Congress, the Senate, and all government branches separate religion from interfering with its daily function to serve the people.

The United States gives people of religion the freedom to worship in their churches, synagogues, temples, mosques, homes and within the family freely.

This is as long as they are not forcing their belief system down someone’s throat. It then becomes a problem with freedom of choice.

Can you imagine if all different religions ran parliament or government with all the different gods people believe in?

The government would be in a mess.

Look around the world where religion has taken over. Women’s rights are no more. Recently one country has allowed women to drive. That’s why we need to separate religion from parliament, government and politics.
