WHILE there is religious tolerance in Fiji, some church leaders condemn and look down on non-Christian religions, says the head of the Catholic Church Archbishop Petero Mataca.

He made the comment at the launch of Guidelines for Religious Tolerance pamphlet in Suva.

"I think there's religious tolerance in society but some leaders do not have that understanding," Archbishop Mataca said.

Fiji's home to living religions and people can boast that our society is truly multi-religious, he said.

"This diversity of churches or religious communities is our riches and strengths that can shine as light to the world," he said.
