"Hindus and Christians got along fine until Christians started using dirty tactics of Jesus where they show love by building hospitals, schools and other terrible atrocities that bring results as opposed to Hindu tactics of throwing scant food and dead bodies into same rivers they bathe and drink from in futile attempts to placate non-existent gods."

I dont know if this shows your narrow and totally warped understanding of what I've written or if you just cant understand plain and simple English ? Either way, as perverse as it is, it clearly demonstrates your mentality. Very quickly let me inform you that, your perception of "to placate non-exsisting gods" is irrelevant because conversely even Jesus is "nonexistent" to the Hindu's and hold as much credulity towards Jesus as you hold towards their gods.

Also as for "show love by building hospitals etc", I have already explained how this is a warped opinion, as no where does it say in the bible that "help thy neighbor only if he is Christian!". That is just perverse fundamentalist Christianity quite akin to fundamentalist Islam and their selective "love". As for "the dirty tactics of Jesus", apparently you are under some delusion that the Evangelical body's tactics somehow represent Jesus's tactics! That is simply absurd and the kind of narrow thinking that ruins Christianity and the message of Jesus.

Finally, if you bother to actually enlighten yourself about the object of your rant, you would realize that Hinduism like Judaism does not believe in proselytizing and see it as intrusive . So, if you go into their country and rub your faith in their faces and mock their faith (like you have just done!) , you cant expect any welcome or be shown any hospitality. This is exactly what Jesus said not to do and just like you, some neo-evangelical missionaries decided to condescend on these "pagans" bringing about the sad situation it did.
