I think your sources of "info" qualify more for your little adjective ...

You have a very uninformed awareness of the damage "pitchforks and "knives" can do against an un-armed and totally ambushed village of peaceful Christians.

The Hindus make liberal use of the penis, not as well as the Muslims, but used freely just the same. Entire Christian villages have been looted and burned down. Thousands of Christians have returned to villages only to be doused with gasoline or kerosene and given the choice of being set on fire or re-cant. Many have been burned to death or hung.

What do you see about this that isn't lethal? Tens of thousands of Christians try to stay alive in jungles with nothing but the clothes on their backs - what they escaped with.

I have never put Hinduism on an equal footing with Islam. What I have said is truth, that Hinduism hates just as hard. Lack of sophisticated weaponry hasn't kept them from doing terrible thingsagainst - what? The worst you can come up with is that they build a few hospitals and then refuse THEMSELVES to use them?

I suppose if the Hindus are offended at simple math, we should avoid at all costs educating them? What of hygiene and the best ways to avoid disease? Millions of South East Indians have converted to Christianity because they have been taught how to read and write in their own languages by Christian organizations who help them with hygiene, setting up simple businesses, and helping their fellow Hindus - far from the heinous acts carried out against them.

You use the word "pathetic" for all this? You know nothing of what I personally do, and I'm not here to point out my own "self-righteousness". What I do are concrete acts far more than sitting my duff in front of a computer. But then if you were even slightly educated on the reality of what Christians do in this world, you wouldn't be caustically accusing them in any of your own rants.

The door is open to a better life than accomplished by polluting your own rivers with food despearately needed by those who dump it into the rivers they drink and bathe from. Throw in the ashes of a few million dead Hindus and rampant disease of all kinds race through ther populations. You would do what? Keep them ignorant?
