SI Government to ban the "Da Vinci Code" film
Prime Minister, Manasseh Sogavare says he will be pursuing this with the churches after seeking legal advise from the Attorney General.
The film which depicts that Jesus also lived immoral life and married to Mary Magdalene and had children during his time on earth had stirred anger and opposition by many Christians in other parts of the world.
Prime Minister Sogavare says he will be rallying the support of the churches to make sure the film does not destroy peoples faith in Jesus as the saviour and the son of God.
"We profess Christian religion in the country, and that film that depicts some thoughts about this person called Jesus Christ that Christian adore as not only as a good man, but was himself God, and such a film basically undermines the very roots of Christianity in Solomon Islands."
Mr Sogavare says his action is in line with his statement immediately after his election as Prime Minister that his Government will put God first in everything it does.
He says peace, love and harmony among peoples of this nation are based on Christian teachings about the life of Jesus.
Mr Sogavare says Government will be failing its duty if it allows such film to destroy the moral fabric of society which is peace, love and harmony.
