Methodist Church Against Fiji Casino

FBC NEWS - Tuesday, November 02, 2010

The Methodist Church says they remain opposed to the proposal to set up a casino in Fiji – as they have done over the years.

Church Assistant General Secretary Reverend Tevita Nawadra told FBC News they were not saying this to go against government – but as a moral duty.

He says the Methodist Church’s stand on Casinos or any other form of gambling is very clear – they are against it.

Government has called for expressions of interest for those wanting to set up the first casino in Fiji – and Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama has told FBC News that only foreigners will be allowed to use the casino.

He says all funds government will earn from the casino will go towards poverty alleviation – and only one license will be given out.

Nawadra says the church remains opposed to any money earned through Casinos or any other form of gambling as it is against God’s will.

He adds the church will continue to pray for the government and the people.
