Catholic Church in Fiji supports principle of secular state

The Catholic Church in Fiji on Monday expressed its support to the government’s non-negotiable principle of secular state, stressing that everyone in the island nation should have the freedom of choice with their religion.

Vicar General, Fr Beni Kaloudau,  said the Catholic Church in Fiji welcomes the principle of equal rights to worship.

Kaloudau said that citizens made up different faith groups in the country which needs to be respected based on the different ethnicities and faiths of citizens as well as visitors to the Fijian shores considering the country’s dependence on tourism.
