Vatican City, - The Vatican on Friday defended the "right and duty" of Catholics to do missionary work aimed at converting people from other religions and other Christian denominations. The assertion came in a document titled "Doctrinal Note on some aspects of Evangelization", issued by the Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith, the Vatican's department in charge of matters of church orthodoxy.... deleted
But the Vatican's top Indian-born cleric, Cardinal Ivan Dias, said he believed the "vast majority" of Hindus - the largest religious group in India - would welcome the document...........................Ivan Dias who heads Vatican's department in charge of missionary work, the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples, said speaking at a news conference presenting the document. Hindus "respect our honesty in declaring our beliefs about the founder (Christ) of our religion without attempting to dilute our message," Dias said.
Thanks for elucidating the essence of the church's intolerance and imperialism so candidly, padre. In a logical world, such uncharacteristic transparency should jolt awake all the dhimmis who chant the "All religions are equal" mantra. But, it won't because there is no coming back after having gone down the slippery slope of dhimmitude. Even though the church itself has no inhibitions in discarding the cloak of "charity" and openly declaring it's naked intent of conquest, it's secular progressive apologists in India will negate it. They simply do not understand the Vatican's concept of "Freedom of religion".
A closer look reveals that the Vatican's "Doctrinal note" is focused on India and the Hindus almost entirely! No mention of rights and duties to convert Mohammedans. Ratzy is obviously quite familiar with the Arab/Mohammedan partiality for emasculation as a punitive measure against evangelising "fathers" and even more horrible techniques deployed against evangelising "sisters". Why do you think the ghoul came to Calcutta/West Bengal and NOT to Islamic Bangladesh?
Also to be noted is the sheer arrogance of the christists: to presume that Hindus will wholeheartedly and unquestioningly welcome their evangelism!!! It's like the Yanks incredulously asking "Hey, why would you Coolies get all uppity and oppose the nuclear "deal" that is sooo manifestly in your interest?". The "fathers" actually expect Hindus to welcome their 'deal' of christian civilisation (sic) and are offended/infuriated when Hindus say "No Thanks"!
