Where is the US Council on International Religious Freedom?

November 17

Where is the international response to the arrest of the Kanchi Acharya?

The USCIRF did not stir a little finger. This merely supports the contention that it is not meant for religious freedom per se, but for the advancement of Christian fundamentalism.

The BBC called the Acharya a 'cleric'. Strictly speaking, this is true: a cleric is a member of a religious order. But I have never heard them call the Pope a cleric. It is always 'the pontiff' or 'the pope'. Why? I suggest that we should all call the Pope a 'cleric' from now on.

You do that, Nizhal Yoddha! A brave step indeed! That'll show those Christian b****ds their place.
