Religious conversion is wrong. When one claims that one's religion is the
superior religion, then it becomes just as bad as saying that one race is
superior than the other race. God is too immense to be covered by one
All religions believe in God.
Mud slinging other religions does not make ones own religion any better.
There is always negative stereotyping of the Hindus in the media and books
- idol worhsippers, Holy Cow, caste. It is not only offensive, it is
downright tiresome! Take the example of Pat Roberston, who said on his 700
Club TV show that, Hindus in India live in grinding poverty because of
their faith. Since when did material poverty translate into spiritual
poverty? Don't we have poverty, homelessness, crime, murders, drug
abuse, pornography, teenage pregnancy in this country which is so affleunt?
Isn't it time we recognize that all religions are good? Tolerance and
maturity is the key here.
To quote Will Durant:
"Perhaps in return for conquest, arrogance and spoilation, India will teach
us the tolerance and gentleness of the mature mind and quiet content of the
unacquitive soul, the calm of the understanding spirit, and a unifying,
pacifying love for all living things"
