Dear Editor, Re: The man who broke St. Mary statue in Court I don’t think you “WALK AND TALK THE BIBLE” ever because you sounded too naive and “trigger happy”. I am a Christian and I find your comments repugnant and blasphemous.
Dear Editor, Re: Struggles of travelling to Samoa This is a timely letter given that we’ve just had Valentine’s day. This guy’s love for his Samoan wife must be so deep and unfathomable, for him to spend all that money to keep coming to Samoa.
Re: Is Samoa a Christian nation? Who is this Orlando Huaman who writes about things that he doesn’t understand? First off a Christian nation is a country that more that 50% believe in Jesus Christ, in which Samoa is.
Re: Who is more dangerous? Christians or Muslims? Go back through the history of Church-blessed exiles, banishment, evictions, beatings, killings, house stonings and burnings, property damage and confiscation and tell me how this is different from Shariah law, again?
Re: What President Donald Trump has already done for America! I believe our P.M. wants to maintain his claim of being the first “Nutcase” to lead a nation. With all due respect to the POTUS, our P.M. was the first to make ridiculous remarks.
Dear Editor, Re: Three males charged with drug possession The police finding a leaf of marijuana in the young man’s pocket then arrested and charged him is a waste of taxpayers’ money and resources.
Dear Editor, Re: Who is more dangerous? Christians or Muslims: It is great to read views/opinions of Street Talk from various age groups of the Samoan people. It is encouraging that all of them have expressed their true heart of their faith in Almighty God.
Dear Editor, Re: Fa’avale’s Family Plight I have just read an article on the 14th of February edition of this esteemed newspaper, Fa’avale’s Family Plight, and wish to blow off some steam.
Dear Editor, I just wanted to get my point of view across to anyone in Samoa who really cares. At the moment I am in Australia - but I have been to Samoa over 100 times since 1973 since my wife is a Samoan.
Dear Editor, Re: Lawyer queries Chief Justice’s church links This is called tactics. Any good attorney will use the Conflict Of Interest as an appeal. She has every right to address this for future litigation by others too. Judges are fallible just like a common man.
Dear Editor, Re: Who is more dangerous? Christians or Muslims? This is a true account. The year was 1995, in Melbourne Australia, I had an encounter with several Muslims brethren, I was also invited inside a Mosque, didn’t have to wash my feet because I did not have intercourse the night before, I was told.
Re: Who is more dangerous? Christians or Muslims? It amazes me that people blame all the ugliness of the world’s history on the U.S. Any part of history that have any negative light, you blame the U.S. Although the U.S did not exist during those times.
Re: Why it is problematic to put the Trinity in our Constitution Fatilua, thank you for a well-written letter. I’m still deciding to see if I will submit my letter on the subject or not. In it I also mention the Caesar (state) vs. God (church) dichotomy.
The following piece is a letter to the editor published in Samoa News which raises questions about the handling of a case involving a woman from Samoa and her new born baby. Written by Ipu Avegalio Lefiti, it is reprinted here in full:

Samoa’s Olympic medalist, Ele Opeloge, is unlikely to earn a lot of money – if any – from the government for her efforts. Prime Minister Tuilaepa Sa’ilele Malielegaoi’s insists the government only awards monetary gifts to Olympic gold medal winners.
Think a minute…This is a true story about a young lady who got so tired of living with her strict parents that she ran away from home.

We really need another airline that is not affiliated to an existing one which is also flying in and out of Samoa. In other words, competition please, not a cosy relationship where you both maintain the status quo at the expense of the trapped customers
The mead hall of King Giuki was filled with the sounds of music and laughter. At his table, the king sat smiling, his horn in his hand and his eyes fixing themselves upon each of his sons in turn.
