Dear Ministers,

The Solomon Times reported that you are likely bowing to the pressure of SICA by refusing an invitation to the Global Peace Festival. Is that true? What other reason could you have? Please don't be bullied by fanatical rhetoric. Use common sense and tap the resources for change that are available to you now. Your refusal would mischaracterize your true nature, judgement, and purpose, betraying your efforts for positive change in the Solomon Islands. Its time to put religion in its proper place: behind the welfare of families and common cause.
