Reader comment on item: Bush Declares War on Radical Islam
in response to reader comment: Mother Teresa, A Misused Icon To Furhter Aims Of Christian Conversions

Submitted by Georges Fernandez (India), Dec 2, 2005 at 15:37

My ancestors were Hindu, Don! I have many friends among them, and blood runs thick for many Christian converts I know, who are truly ashamed of the tactics employed by the evangelists and the bought English-language media. My Hindu friends never pointed to my Christian background, but I was routinely taunted by Christians for being a 'low caste convert', which neccessitated my becoming an atheist. I don't know what to make of your sarcastic opening remark -- do you wish that I treat Hindus as untouchables -- like most evangelists and foreign-funded Christian NGOs are so unfairly trying to do by their harangues in Western media?

But in any case it is good to have you recant, Don, if only in answer to a former co-religionist, and not before a hated-Hindu! You reveal more between-the-lines, than most of your confused invective anyway.
