The forgotten victims: persecution of Christians in Asian and African countries

What about the constant persecution of Christians in Asian and African countries?

In India alone, there have been at least 75 incidents of anti-Christian attacks so far this year.

There have been hundreds of attacks against clergy members and other Christians in the last few years in India, including murders, gang raping, bomb attacks, threats and other violence.

The Indian government does nothing about it.

Politically correct insults

To say things like “racist” or “fascist” has become these days the equivalent of what in the past could have been, I suppose, “sinner” or “heretic”.

I mean that they are and are meant as just insults thrown at somebody, and they don’t have any of the original meaning any more.

Their over-use and use out of context or rather in the wrong context (in the case of the modern insults) guarantee that their sense has been lost.

They are simply insults representing the current ideology (political correctness), and orthodoxy, much as perhaps the older abuse did.

They have no specific meaning. All they mean is generic. They mean: I am in the majority and you are in the minority, therefore I am right and you are wrong (because for the kind of people who use them might is right).

The nature of power

Political public speakerPower is always held by a minority.

It is in the nature of things, of human beings, of human societies.

Democracy has been created just to limit and moderate the consequences of this, but it cannot overturn it.

Majorities are not suitable for command. First of all, the average intelligence of a great mass of human beings will never be as high as that of an elite. Secondly, a large number of people is unlikely to share the same views beyond obvious aspects of agreement, so there will be factors of internal division. Thirdly, there is an element
of amorphousness in a mass of people. It is perhaps well expressed by the terms “silent majority”. It’s uncharacteristic and unlikely that a great number of people will be determined at the unison towards any given objective, whereas a minority can be very resolute and belligerent.

I would compare a majority to a ball of paper, and a minority (or elite minority) to a sharp point of a knife or sword.

Eastern religions are not as animal loving as commonly assumed

The myth that Eastern religions are animal loving is, indeed, a myth.

Compare this (fiction):

“Hindu groups are well known for promoting vegetarianism and animal rights, particularly the protection of cows.” (from The Myth of the Hindu Right webpage

with this (fact):

“Among the Hindus of Nepal, animal sacrifices are common even today, not only for the mother goddess, but also for almost all deities of the Hindu pantheon. The Hindu way of slaughtering the animal may be less painful than others, as it involves an immediate severing of the whole neck of the animal by one quick stroke of a sword or an axe (otherwise great calamities are believed to befall the sacrificer), rather than slitting of the throat.” (from Wikipedia,

Even Buddhism is not so kind to animals as is commonly taken for granted.

Not only did Buddha taste beef but it is well known that he died due to eating pork. Emperor Ashok, after converting to Buddhism, did not turn to vegetarianism; he only restricted the number of animals to be killed for the royal kitchen.
