Is Samoa not founded on God?

Dear Editor,

Wow, what is wrong with this government? 

Ua le iloa le Atua? A’o fea le faavae ma le tagavai a le malo o Samoa. Faavae i le Atua Samoa.” 

Why does Tuilaepa always refer to Biblical phrases and verses sometimes in his speeches? E lafi ai? 

Why speak about God when he doesn’t even acknowledge and respect God? Samoa has always been known as a nation that puts God first, thus was and still is the reason that the people of Samoa would always do a lotu or prayer first to start off an event/activities, especially this most important event.. our Independence celebrations.

The independence celebration last week must have been the first time in history that I’ve heard of, ua le amanaia ai e le malo o Samoa le Atua ma lona alofa i ona tagata .

Talofa e i si o tatou malo. E amata mai imauga le manuia o se nuu ma se Ekalesia. E amata mai foi i ta’ita’i ma faauluuluga o le malo, le manuia o le malo.

Afai ua sasi ai le Palemia ma lana tofa i lea vaega, a’o ana faipule foi sei fautua atu iai. Ua le iloa le Atua?

Aisea ua sui ai fua le fa’avae sa sau ai Samoa i tausaga e fia talu ona tu to’atasi, e amata lava I le sauniga lotu le faamanatuina o tutoatsi uma ua tuanai, o le malo o Samoa? 

Sa’o ai le upu a le Saiga ia oukou…”Kele mea magava, le mafai kaukala…ia ko’a’aga e kaufekuli e fai mea e maga’o ai Stui.
