Hindu Statement

Its not a Religious Statement, Its a Cultural Statement!!!

No peace but surely a Church in Afghanistan!

US soldiers have been encouraged to spread the message of their Christian faith among Afghanistan’s predominantly Muslim population, video footage obtained by Al Jazeera appears to show.

[..]

“The special forces guys – they hunt men basically. We do the same things as Christians, we hunt people for Jesus. We do, we hunt them down,” he says.

These guys stop at nothing, absolutely nothing, they can stoop down to any lengths to convert people. They are out to preach religion(christianity) to a country that has been ravaged because of the very same reason, Religion(radical Islam). Do these people feel that in a country where people have nothing to eat,  religion will fill peoples stomach? Am actually now wondering  whether the reason for the war itself had a hidden agenda.

Afghanistan was a peaceful budhist place until hordes of Islamic attackers captured it and converted or killed everyone there. Now we have almost the same scenes taking place , except that the attackers and their religion is different. Are we seeing a rerun of history here?

Do they even have a sense of shame doing so? Am not against preaching your faith, but the places that they “hunt” is what abhors me. Why dont they try convincing educated and thinking people to convert?  Why dont they convert people from well to do families and dont need their “help” (in terms of cash) to live. They would not, for they know that their propoganda will fall flat on its face.

If the poor soul of Jesus Christ were to see what the church does in his name, I am sure that he would himself not want to be a part of the church. He might even convert back to being a Jew, or something else.  Yes I do believe so, he will really not want to be a part of this, third rated propoganda machinery.

Priest admits to idol worship in churches

And I thought that the saffron brigade was the one to be blamed for spreading rumors that the church involves in conversions “by any means”.

BANGALORE: In a revelation that could have widespread ramifications, Father Joseph Menengis, priest of St James Church in Mariyannapalya, Bangalore, confessed before the Justice B K Somashekara Commission of Inquiry on Wednesday that idol worship was being performed in churches to attract Hindus and convert them to Christianity.

The Commission is inquiring into the recent attacks on churches in Karnataka.“Hindus believe in idol worship. So to attract them to Christianity, idol worship is performed in churches,” Menengis said.

During cross-examination, the priest said that “despite idol worship being prohibited in Bible, we have idol worship in churches.” “The duty of every Christian is to convert non-Christians to Christianity by any means,” the priest told the commission.

St James Church was attacked by miscreants on September 21, 2008.The church is running co-education institutions, with classes from first to eight standard.

During cross-examination the priest confessed that “no girl students are permitted to use kumkum, bangles and wear flowers. In our institution, we have moral science textbook.But it does not contain texts regarding Holy Bible and Jesus,” the priest added.The commission has requested the priest to submit the textbook to it.
