This is primarily a political blog. Politics of religion, to be precise. I love humanity but I am no “nice Hindu” guy who puts up with abuse from the rest of of the anti Hindus. And I am highly opinionated with no loyalty to my opinions.. I will change my opinion based on new information. I am not a “practicing” Hindu who visit Hindu temples religiously and pray to the Hindu deity on Fridays or any other auspicious day. I cannot remember when I visited a Hindu temple last nor do I even remember when I prayed in earnest. I could care less if someone is religious or not or what Green Goblin up in the heavens they pay homage to. I do not believe religious people are more moral than the ones who are not. Neither am I an evangelical atheist.
Remember this , Indians? “God is one – whether you call Him ‘Jesus’, ‘Ishwar’ or ‘Allah’ “? I drank that cool aid when I was in 1st grade into college and beyond.I fell for that idealism of Pluralism. I was my brothers keeper. Then I grew up. I realized that I have been had, Hoodwinked, Bamboozled by the “secular” spouting illiberal political left who are actually backing the church and evangelical organizations of the world to culturally cleanse India and spread a culture of anti Hindu bigotry all over India and the world. I started noticing the church organisations in India break that holy Indian covenant . The social contract. Now when the neo evangelicals run around spewing their Christian supremacy, what happened to my brother? Where is his part in the implicit Indian social contract? Betrayal!
I love people of all faiths. I have no beef with 90% of the Christians of the world. .. but I do have strong opinions on the politics of religion. Particularly the militant christian evangelicals. I have come to consider them as bullies. I find them to be unpleasant nuisance. I find them beating up on people of other non evangelical faiths who just mind their own business.. I hate bullies and this blog is primarily to take on those evangelicals who have decided to war with people of other faiths and to establish the supremacy of the Christian religion.
What if 400 million Indians convert to non Hindu religion of Jain, Buddhism, Sikhism, Jainism or even Judaism? It wouldn’t bother me one bit. Cause all they have done is moved from worshiping one of many Hindu deities to another. Nothing more. When a christian preacher preaches the divinity of Jesus to an average Hindu, the Hindu may nod his head, accept Jesus and place the iconography of christianity next to his other pantheons of his Hindu deities. But the preacher fellow is not happy with that.. This evil now wants this once pluralistic decent Hindu to reject all other deities and accept only Jesus and turn him against his fellow Indians and to bat for his petulant jealous Abrahamic god. The conversion is from a tolerant human being into bigotry and intolerance. This is not about religion.. This is about political mischief and dividing the nation of India and turning one Indian against another. This has happened in East Timur and other countries. Its happening in NE India and in Kanyakumari District of Tamilnadu and this virus is spreading all over India. The western evangelical organization with the riches and political power greater than many large countries have declared war on Hinduism and other Asian faiths. Many of these militant evangelical church groups have allayed with violent Maoist groups all over to execute political assassinations of anyone who stand in their way. They have been busy recruiting local Sepoy to do their dirty work in Asian countries including India. They are reviving the age old evil practice of religious Iconoclasm of destroying Iconography of other peoples religion. This evil should not be tolerated.
I do not make any attempt to hide my contempt for these evil people. Same goes for the illiberal political left of India who give political cover for these evangelicals. In my opinion, these are not nice people and neither do they play fair. They fight dirty and this is my attempt to take them on and expose them for what they are in a language these nasty people understand.
If you want to fight for righteousness, please e-mail links to these blog items to friends and families… Spread the word. If you find other interesting articles, please post here in the comment section. Spread these talking points to fellow Dharmic folks so they are educated on these topics and are better prepared. Help bring awareness to all. Not just to the Hindus. We collectively need to face the war on Dharma by the two Goliath predators.
I am tired of Hindus playing nice and the Gandhian way of turn the other cheek. Enough is Enough. To Hindus who think that they can afford to ignore the evangelicals or that they need to play nice, you are wrong. These evangelicals have played this game for the last 2000 years and they are seasoned predators. Don’t be cowards… Take them on. It’s dirty work but you got to do it.
In any case, I love feedback… So please leave comments… agree or disagree… please do post your opinions. I’d appreciate it very much.
If you want to deal only with pleasantries and peace and love, please visit more pleasant blogs out there. Here are some links that may interest you.
MY American Heroes: These are men I admire who have taken on and are taking on the might of the evangelical christian predators.
IT has been my intention, for several years past, to publish my thoughts upon religion. I am well aware of the difficulties that attend the subject, and from that consideration, had reserved it to a more advanced period of life. I intended it to be the last offering I should make to my fellow-citizens of all nations, and that at a time when the purity of the motive that induced me to it, could not admit of a question, even by those who might disapprove the work.
The circumstance that has now taken place in France of the total abolition of the whole national order of priesthood, and of everything appertaining to compulsive systems of religion, and compulsive articles of faith, has not only precipitated my intention, but rendered a work of this kind exceedingly necessary, lest in the general wreck of superstition, of false systems of government, and false theology, we lose sight of morality, of humanity, and of the theology that is true.
As several of my colleagues and others of my fellow-citizens of France have given me the example of making their voluntary and individual profession of faith, I also will make mine; and I do this with all that sincerity and frankness with which the mind of man communicates with itself.
I believe in one God, and no more; and I hope for happiness beyond this life.
I believe in the equality of man; and I believe that religious duties consist in doing justice, loving mercy, and endeavoring to make our fellow-creatures happy.
But, lest it should be supposed that I believe in many other things in addition to these, I shall, in the progress of this work, declare the things I do not believe, and my reasons for not believing them.
I do not believe in the creed professed by the Jewish church, by the Roman church, by the Greek church, by the Turkish church, by the Protestant church, nor by any church that I know of. My own mind is my own church.
All national institutions of churches, whether Jewish, Christian or Turkish, appear to me no other than human inventions, set up to terrify and enslave mankind, and monopolize power and profit.
I do not mean by this declaration to condemn those who believe otherwise; they have the same right to their belief as I have to mine. But it is necessary to the happiness of man, that he be mentally faithful to himself. Infidelity does not consist in believing, or in disbelieving; it consists in professing to believe what he does not believe.
It is impossible to calculate the moral mischief, if I may so express it, that mental lying has produced in society. When a man has so far corrupted and prostituted the chastity of his mind, as to subscribe his professional belief to things he does not believe, he has prepared himself for the commission of every other crime. He takes up the trade of a priest for the sake of gain, and in order to qualify himself for that trade, he begins with a perjury. Can we conceive any thing more destructive to morality than this?
