Fiji Methodists will not be swayed on same sex unions

The Methodist church in Fiji says in will not be swayed on the matter of same sex unions, but it respects the individual rights of sexual minority groups.

The Church will offer spiritual guidance to members of the group who seek their advice.

The acting general secretary of the Methodist Church in Fij, Reverend Tevita Nawadra, says the church was adamant that a union between a man and a woman alone was sacred and the scriptures abhorred any other kind.

“It (the promotion of sexual minority rights) is against the morals and the teachings of the church, we do not condone any such activities.”

Mr Nawadra said the church respected the individual rights of the members of sexual minority groups.

“It is in their every right to stand up for what they believe in but the issue itself is not condoned by the church based on our beliefs and the principles of the Bible,” he said.
