Re: Why I like the Hindus.
|Hinduism (and its off shoots) is perhaps the world's most tolerant religion.|
Not toward Christians. I know an Indian pastor who says they have been increasing their persecutions recently. He's sent me videos of Christians lying injured and dead in the streets, bandaged up in the hospitals, a woman stripped naked being chased through the streets.
Hindus are fine with any religion that just adds another god to their millions, same as the old Roman paganism of the Caesars, but not at all happy if the religion is exclusivistic.
Here's Wikipedia onViolence Against Christians in India
|Anti-Christian violence in India refers to religiously-motivated violence against Christians in India. Violence against Christians has been seen by the organization Human Rights Watch as a tactic used to meet political ends. The acts of violence include arson of churches, conversion of Christians by force and threats of physical violence, sexual assaults, murder of Christian priests and destruction of Christian schools, colleges, and cemeteries. |
In August 2017, the US Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) ranked India’s persecution severity at “Tier 2” along with Iraq and Afghanistan. In the past six years,[when?] India has risen from No. 31 to No. 11 on Open Doors' World Watch List, ranking just behind Iran in persecution severity.
You should differentiate between Roman Catholicism and Christianity in general if you are talking about their propensity to violence. The RC Church is famous for its Inquisition and other forms of violence. And of course so is Islam.
