Indian Christians Continue to Face Boycott, Forced Conversions


beforeitsnews.com

Two years after losing relatives and property to anti-Christian violence, survivors in India's Orissa state are still being pressured to "return" to Hinduism, according to a private investigation.

According to the preliminary report of a fact-finding team, "Despite the state administration’s claim of normalcy, a state of lawlessness and utter fear and sense of insecurity" is prevalent among the Christians in Kandhamal district who experienced anti-Christian violence in 2008.

What it seems we have hear is some ethic cleansing going on. It may not be happening with guns, bombs, or bandits coming into a village and killing every human alive then dumping there bodies into the water supply to poison it, as was happening in Darfur. It is being done to force conversations to what ever the way of thinking is in the region, in this case Hinduism. One must some times wonder, how many non violent religions are out there?

How many non-Violent religions?

I can name one: Atheism '


anyways

Forcing a people to convert to Capitalism and Democracy is also forced conversion.

It applies to all ideas.

I think that most, if not all, organised religions have a militant and intolerant aspect to them.

Very strange, most Hindus I know don't tend to go in for conversion and are generally content to live and let live. Maybe it's more a regional, cultural thing rather than religious.

I agree with your statement about converting people to democracy and capitalism, but then again what do I know, I'm British. We're a Democratic, socialist, capitalist monarchy!


It can be a little confusing being a Brit... probably explains the sense of humour I suppose

If you had just stopped talking with your first two lines you would have actually made a statement I could have agreed with. Instead the giant @**f went into the m*%t@.

They made you believe forced conversion only applies to Muslims right


Now do you realize that there is a difference between Muslim and Islam.

Similarly there is a difference between Hinduism and Hindus.

Not at all, I already know there's a difference between the Religion and the religious. Christians, Muslims and Jews have all been guilty of forced conversion at one time or another. They have all set out to convert the masses, including the Christian missionaries etc.

I've never heard of it happening with Hindus however. Most Hindus I know hardly ever mention religion and I know both British and Indian Hindus. They don't seem to care whether someone is another religion. One of my best mates at school was quite a devout Hindu, but he never tried to extol the virtues of Hinduism to me.

BTW, why does everything have to come down to "The world against Islam" with you? This thread has nothing to do with Islam or the Muslim people at all. FYI, I am an Atheist, therefore, why should I have a problem with any religion? On this subject I'm totally neutral.

I have no problem with religion, but blind faith really pees me off.

Just because courts declare something true doesn't always make that something valid.

Atheism is a religion as much as Islam is a race.

Besides, to declare atheism non-violent is pure ignorance. The number of people killed in the name of "Atheism" is staggering. The Inquisition would seem as a "peaceful" movement when compared to the atrocities committed by supporters of atheism.

And furthermore, Capitalism and Democracy aren't a religion neither.

Sometimes I do that thing called sarcasm Duuuhh..

I am well aware of Atheists causing millions of deaths of their own, predominantly the Atheist USSR.

The above being said, Capitalism and Democracy is not a religion, but is an idea, just like religion.

All ideas can be used for violence, d1ck heads can claim to be adherents of what ever religion they, but when they bring their d1ck head friends in the equation, it just makes the whole idea smelly, at least to the ignorant.

I beg to differ that religion is an idea. Religion is a commandment from God to worship Him. Capitalism and Democracy aren't commandments.

I beg to differ. Violence is not the product of an idea. Violent actions are the product of a violent mind.

Only from the point of view of that specific religion. Opposing religions would argue that their religion is the commandment of their God and that yours are wrong and mistaken ideals.

This is often where the problems begin. Blind faith in one's religious beliefs offers no flexibility, no possibility of fallibility, which leads to the mindset of "I'm right and you're wrong".

Most religious people do not accept the possibility of their faith being incorrect.

I earlier called myself an Athiest. That was probably too strong a word, as often Athiests are just as stubborn and single minded as the religious in their beliefs. I, on the other hand admit to the possibility of there being a God, but simply don't buy it.

If the whole world could keep an open mind, it would be a much nicer place.

[" Violent actions are the product of a violent mind."]

I would just add from following a violent leader

And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.-Isaiah53.9

The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing. The words I have spoken to you—they are full of the Spirit and life.-John6.63

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!-2Cor5

There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male and female, for all are one in Christ Jesus.-Gal3.28

I had to star you.

Your insight to the underlying problem of religion is "right on."

It's my belief that the underlying problem with religion is that man will listen to the interpretations of a another man about what and who God is.

Only God knows what He is. Man doesn't have the mental capacity to even imagine Gods perfection. They say they do but in reality they don't.
