Hindu Statement

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

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.

Eight-year-old shot at for spraying colours on man

By shooting an eight year old kid for pouring color on him, this mad man (fisherman with a  gun??? Sounds a bit suspicious too)  took humanity to ridiculous depths.  I will not be surprised if we have people defending Mohammad Rashid saying that the kid was trying to impose her religion on him in the pretext of holi with the help of the “saffron brigade”.

Long live india and its “secularism”.

Shahdol (MP): An eight-year-old girl was on Wednesday shot at and injured by a person allegedly peeved over her for pouring colour over him on the occasion of Holi at Parmaniya Khurd village here, police said.

Shelly Gupta suffered bullet injuries in both her legs when a fisherman, Mohammad Rashid of Singpur village, opened fire with his gun at a group of children celebrating Holi as they had supposedly sprayed him with colours, Kotwali Police Station In-charge Vijay Pratap Singh told PTI.

She was admitted to the Shahdol District Hospital for treatment where her condition was stated to be out of danger,he said.

Hearing gunshots, the villagers gathered and beat up Rashid and later handed him over to police, Singh said.

A case has been registered against the accused, Pratap added
