Disclaimer and the power of the missionaries and the church, 1869.

A disclaimer:

Mamuli o ke kono ana mai a ka lehulehu e hoopuka i Kaao a moolelo Hawaii a haole ma ko kakou nupepa, a no ka mea hoi, no ka lehulehu ka nupepa, nolaila, ua ae aku makou e hoopukaia ke Kaao Hawaii malalo iho nei.

Defense of Bishop Alfred Willis, and perhaps why Royalist Campbell was baptized at St. Andrews and not at Kawaiahao. 1893.

POSITION OF THE BISHOP.

Bishop Willis in his Diocesan Church Magazine takes the ground that Christian missions to heathen nations and peoples throughout the world will be injured by the news that will go everywhere of the prominent part taken by the sons and descendants of Christian missionaries in  Hawaii in overthrowing the ancient monarchy of the country. Whether the Bishop can maintain this ground or not is not a question that we are going to discuss. Continue reading

Speaking of Bishop Willis, 1893.

AN IMPLACABLE BISHOP.

The Diocesan Magazine is a purely religious publication—not like the Christian Union in New York, or our own Friend, partially secular in its character. It is, therefore, with some surprise, that one finds half the March issue given over to a rabid attack on the Government, the Revolution, and indeed upon almost everything civilized, progressive and Christian in sight. Those who are acquainted with the career of the present head of the Anglican Church in Hawaii, will find nothing unexpected in his sentiments, but will be surprised only at the manner and occasion of their expression.

It is a true, this lahui heeded the teachings of the missionaries from Boston, and their voices became something important to this lahui for 66 years without dissent. Continue reading

George Berkely Rowell, 1865.

News from Waimea, Kauai.

In the midday of this 9th of August, G. B. Rowell and the church members who followed him went into the Church of Waimea with new locks to shut the doors of the Church so that it could not be entered with the old keys in our possession, until our meeting hour, at 1:30, when I went to ring our meeting bell; the doors were locked and people were on guard from inside, with the doors locked; and I said, “open the doors you guys so that I can come in to ring our bell.” Kahele and Luka, the heads of Rowell’s church refused.
