vulture alert: christists breaking the law in orissa and causing problems; church-burning is an effect, not a cause

dec 27th, 2007

the vultures as well as the ELM keep talking about "the law".

"the law" in orissa says it's not proper to convert.

these bastards are breaking the law and deserve the full force of the State against them.

this small detail is not emphasized in all the breast-beating.

this is an all-out assault on hinduism. they are hoping to wipe out hinduism while sonia is at the helm of affairs, ie. before 2009.

Bible distribution plans moving forward in Orissa State.
Print ViewMobile VersionPosted: 1 March, 2007

India (MNN) ― In spite of Orissa State's 1999 anti-conversion law, there are still evangelistic projects going on in this hostile part of India.  The Freedom of Religion Act of 1967 was amended in 1999 to narrow its focus.

Following that, it became known that people could be punished for not informing the state about their plans to convert. But that got taken further by enforcing punishment for those involved in conversions.

A 'Chilling effect' was feared to follow, but instead, the opposite phenomenon occurred.  The church, according to many evangelical groups, grew.  Coupled with the timing of the Dalit's rejecting Hinduism and embracing other faiths, the pace of church growth quickened.

World Bible Translation Center's  Gary Bishop says they're excited about their newest undertaking.  "We're going to have the first mass distribution of Bibles this year, in 2007.  This is going to be kind of an historic thing because we're going to do 30-thousand Oriya Bibles in the Orissa State."

Bishop says there's a high population of poor people who are not well-educated.  That's the perfect place for them to bring in Easy-to-Read Version Bibles.  It's available in 13 of the most spoken languages of India.

With the Scriptures aimed at a third grade reading level, more people can understand the gospel and respond. By the year 2010, they want to distribute 1 million Bibles, 2 million New Testaments and 5 million Scripture portions worldwide.

Working in this part of India will likely prove a difficult challenge, and they're asking for help. "We, first of all, need to have people praying for our team there.  We have 400 volunteers that have agreed to help distribute these texts through 30 districts. So, we need to pray for their safety, for them to have courage in the face of certain opposition."

If things stay on track, Bishop notes, they could begin the distribution as early as mid-2007.  Before that, the text, which was completed in 2005, has to be printed, bound and shipped.  Funding becomes a issue at this stage in the project.  If you want to help, click here.

It is sickening to watch NDTV showing Benazir all day.

I saw a news item about some church burning in Orissa, for a fraction of a second on NDTV. It was a one sentence write-up that was shown alongside the photo of Benazir so as to give an impression of balanced coverage. It was shown for probably about a second, then immediately replaced by some nonsense about Benazir's martyrdom.

It was so sickening to see a picture of some commies taking out a candle light 'vigil' in Hyderabad for Benazir Bhutto.
Perhaps she has more 'fans' in India than in her own country.

i am not sure whether getting violent or burning churches, however justified, will help in the long run. I do not know much about Christianity but these guys seem to thrive on persecution, starting from the roman times. The whole religion seems to be built on some kind of a persecution complex. Hence there morbid obsession with martyrs, death etc.
Its a mystery to me what Hindus who convert find in this third rate crap.

Our ELM for something to divert people's attention. I dont think any of the ELM is talking about BJP's thumping victory in Himachal.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch:

The Bible vs. The Koran: The business of marketing the Bible and the Koran says a lot about the state of modern Christianity and Islam:

via http://www.economist.com/world/international/displaystory.cfm?story_id=10311317

Some highlights:

The first is Christianity's superior marketing skills. Its religious publishing houses are big businesses.
Consider product proliferation. Thomas Nelson publishes 60 different editions of the Bible every year. Consider user-friendliness. There are prayer books in everyday vernacular or even street slang (“And even though I walk through/The Hood of death/I don't back down/for you have my back”).

The second advantage the Christians have is America. The world's richest and most powerful country contains some 80m Evangelicals. It supports more missionaries, more broadcasting organisations and more global publishers than any other country.

[T]wo things are certain in the battle of the books. The first is that the urge to spread the Word will spark some of the fiercest conflicts of the 21st century. The second is that the Bible and the Koran will continue to exercise a dramatic influence over human events, for both good and ill.
