A social construct

Dear Editor,

Re: Taxing pastors 

Wake up man, the two systems are a social construct to enslave you and I. 

The system put the faifeau between you and God instead of just between you and God.

You can go direct to God instead of a third party to act on your behalf. That’s the system that these so called missionaries came over our shores to share their “good story” “ole tala e lelei.” 

It’s the greatest story ever told. The magnum opus, while transforming our natural way of life to suit with their own political agenda. 

They set up a govt. and church as a controlling mechanism taking up the best real estate for themselves in the name of God. 

They have taken advantage of our culture because we are a culture of inclusion that represents love and decency. 

That’s why our people are so poor in trying to please the so called man of God; yet when the government are out of line with corruption and all, they refused to speak up against them, because that is how the system was set up. The two complement each other; Church and State. 

The system has inserted stories in our history to suit with their arrival-- legitimizing their claim of how prophetic it was and yet, the chronology of events doesn’t fit the time frame. 

Example, Le sa’iliga malo a Malietoa ma Su’a na o ia Nafanua; this time frame is way off, the point is, I know who God is, he dwell in each of us, but not the commercial God that these corporate churches with their corporate govt. came here to take our land and set up govt. to suit their needs instead the needs of the people.
