Comments on: Top Japan pol calls Christianity self-righteous, Islam hardly better http://blogs.reuters.com/faithworld/2009/11/11/top-japan-pol-calls-christianity-self-righteous-islam-hardly-better/ Religion, faith and ethics Sat, 23 Apr 2016 23:25:07 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: polarnj http://blogs.reuters.com/faithworld/2009/11/11/top-japan-pol-calls-christianity-self-righteous-islam-hardly-better/comment-page-1/#comment-34435 Sun, 20 May 2012 16:42:54 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/faithworld/?p=9552#comment-34435 As far as these statements are concerned (being an American who was raised Catholic) there is absolutely no denying the fact that Abrahamic religions ARE 100% exclusivist. It’s not even debatable! It may be true that not all Christians or Muslims feel this way, but institutionally, it is, without a doubt, the dogma of western religion, with the exception of some of the more mystic and esoteric branches. Some of the current attempts by Rome to be more “open”, are nothing more than an attempt at survival in a modern culture where exclusion is becoming less acceptable and political-correctness holds authority. In studying Buddhism and other dharmic ideas, I’ve also seen some exclusivist ideas, but not nearly as aggressive and intolerant as the western counterpart. While I don’t feel this was the most ‘diplomatic’ thing for an official to say, I can’t deny the truth in it, and I suppose the only people that will are the same types that make his statement true.

Christianity and Islam claim that they are the best religion of the world respectively and non Christian and non Muslim are worst kind of people existing on earth. Even if the Church and neo missionaries and muslims claim it otherwise, the first thing they do is denegrate/ abuse/ hate a non Christian and non Muslim for which they have specific words and specific action like whipping, lashing, torture for non Christian and non Muslim. The pope which someone is talking about is like a series of organized king of religion… Where in we know one pope was responsible for snatching away new born jew babies, a baby which needed parental attention than pope attention. Current pope is fabric of lies. Ask him to open his mouth and will open his mouth on how to rule world, how to make money… The last thing Pope can offer to anyone is spirituality… Ask him spirituality, and he will say become Christian, read bible 24 hrs in a day and indulge, pray, commit sin everyday because Bible/ Jesus is there to wash all sins and he is the one who represents Jesus on earth. Similar teachings are of Islamic torch bearers who claim to represent Allah on earth and ask everyone to indulge in jehad, killings etc. A tabular comparison of crime against humanity by religion would be topped by Christians and Muslims. The rest of religions like Jews, Buddhists, Undefined faiths like that of natives of Africa, Australia, America, Sikhs, Hindus, would be appearing as sufferers of crime of these two religions.Anyone who ignores these facts is the biggest perpetrator of next wave of crime against humanity and Christians, Muslims and those who oppose the simple facts are biggest perpetrators of crime against humanity.

And this how they commit genocide of pre Christian culture and religions. “- Posted by ananth KarmaAnanth, SHAME ON you for comparing genocide of people with some idiotic hyperbole “genocide of culture.” Have you no respect for people who suffer real genocides such as darfur, the holocaust, etc, or is the chip on your shoulder so big?

God and what the bible says is a completely different issue. Society in the UK as well as the US are obviously at a complete spiritual dead end. That according to the bible will not last much longer. As the saying goes “If God does not deal with America (and Britain) then He will have to apologise to Sodom and Gomorrah”

Now Christianity is the dominant religion in South Korea and Buddhism is a fading religion. This is how Christians subvert from within. And this how they commit genocide of pre Christian culture and religions. And that is exactly their intention in India as well.http://www.buddhapia.com/eng/tedesc o/2.htmlBuddhism under Siege 1982-1996:http://christianwatchindia.wor dpress.com/2008/09/10/south-korea-a-chro nology-of-christian-attacks-against-budd hism/As one can derive from above weblink, intolerance the first dogma of abrahamic faiths, strongly advocating religious cannibalism.

All other religions will be assigned their (subordinate) place within the particular worldview of any other religion; how else could it be? And so the eastern religions have their own forms of exclusivism; they just look different than those of Christianity and the Abrahamic religions. I would suggest that it should not simply be presumed without careful examination that the former are better than the latter. The Abrahamic religions have their own inclusivisms as well.I am astonished when I see claims that Christians, because of their religion, will have trouble living in peace with other religions. Has nobody been reading the Pope?

Certainly, people will do evil things in the name of religion but that should never diminish the contributions these same religions make. For instance, has Japan become more western, or has the west become more eastern? The answer is fairly obvious. Why does one suppose that is?Look, all of western culture is a reflection of Greco-Roman, Judeo-Christian expressions of justice and morals. Popular anti-western sentiment, mostly among westerners (sigh) focuses on and even exaggerates wrongs committed in the development of western enlightenment. Would any of these “Christians are all murderers” types like to live in Afghanistan, Somalia, Iraq or even China or Japan? I know I wouldn’t.So far as I am concerned, this mans comments and most of the anti-religious rhetoric I have been saddened to witness here, are expressions of unbalanced people who are traditionally myopic in their views and ironically blame others for the very same thing. I will keep my religion, which is more tolerant than any other I have ever witnessed and which I believe provides right focus and context for living a good life. I will also continue to be proud of my western heritage as the east offers very little of interest to me. So call the religious murderers and committers of genocide Mr. Abortion Loving Chairman Mao, I will remain loyal to the most tolerant religious belief system in the modern world.

All these evils of world will not go away unless these two go away. In the whole world, where ever there is multi cultural society, acts like Terrorism, Genocide, Murder, Rape, Loot and Pillage are carried out by Christians and Muslims. Singapore as an example is here. One will find that for acts of Terrorism, Genocide, Murder, Rape, Loot and Pillage, no amount of rationality can stop Christians and Muslims
