    As you read through this article. I feel people need to see more of the truth in all this more than what they are trying to say they are doing here.
    Interfaith is about joining anyone or religion except for those who love Christ. Learn more about some of these religions and not from an American stand point.
    America lately seems to have forgotten an important fact about Religions. It is their law. Not a Faith like Christianity.

    Hindus want World Council of Churches to organize global interfaith

    Hindus have welcomed "inter-religious dialogue and cooperation" program of World Council of Churches (WCC).
    "In our increasingly pluralistic societies, more inter-religious dialogue and cooperation are needed if conflict fueled by religion is to be constructively addressed… we must learn to live our faith with integrity while respecting and accepting each other", this WCC Program points out.
    Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada (USA) today, said that serious and honest interfaith dialogue was the need of the hour and WCC, being one of the largest religious organizations of the world, should come forward in organizing one.
    Zed, who is president of Universal Society of Hinduism, suggested that WCC should invite leaders of major world religions and denominations and initiate the dialogue.
    Religion was the most powerful, complex and far-reaching force in our society, so we must take it seriously. And we all knew that religion comprised much more than our own particular tradition/experience, Rajan Zed stressed.

  • Hindu extremists murder Christians in India

    The brutal and barbaric actions of Hindu extremists have gone on for decades in India, and Orissa has a dark history of inter-religious unrest, often triggered by Hindu suspicion of Christian missionaries. Cranmer is profoundly moved to share this plea from the Bishop of Phulbani in the Church of North India, who cries: 'I request you with tears kindly organise the prayer for us.'
    And so His Grace exhorts his readers and communicants to pray today for the persecuted Church in India, where nuns are being gang-raped, and many believers are being murdered, tortured or burned alive. Children are being hacked to pieces before their parents' eyes, and churches, community and pastoral centres, convents and orphanages have been burned down and destroyed. Elsewhere, Sisters of Mother Teresa have been attacked by stone-throwing Hindu militants with some being seriously injured. And mobs are terrorising believers throughout the area, marching and shouting "Kill the Christians".
    Cranmer has followed the appalling developments in Orissa via The Times, The Church Times, and other agencies, and he has to wonder why Britain's Hindu community has not condemned these acts of barbarism. Such atrocities might make one feel sympathy for the Muslims of Kashmir, who have been subject to manifestations of Hindu terrorism for decades.

    Hindu extremists' reward to kill Christians, as Britain refuses to bar members

    Rhys Blakely in Bombay
    Extremist Hindu groups offered money, food and alcohol to mobs to kill Christians and destroy their homes, according to Christian aid workers in the eastern state of Orissa.
    The allegations follow the British Government's refusal to prevent members of two radical groups linked to the worst antiChristian violence in India since Partition entering Britain.
    The US-based head of a Christian organisation that runs several orphanages in Orissa – one of India's poorest regions – claims that Christian leaders are being targeted by Hindu militants and carry a price on their heads. "The going price to kill a pastor is $250 (£170)," Faiz Rahman, the chairman of Good News India, said.

    Report: Hindu Groups in India Offering Rewards to Kill Christians

    Thursday, November 20, 2008

    Extremist Hindu groups offered money, food and alcohol to mobs to kill Christians and destroy their homes, according to Christian aid workers in the eastern India state of Orissa.
    The U.S.-based head of Good News India, a Christian organization that runs several orphanages in Orissa — one of India's poorest regions — claims that Christian leaders are being targeted by Hindu militants and carry a price on their heads. "The going price to kill a pastor is $250," said Faiz Rahman, the chairman of Good News India.
    A spokesman for the All-India Christian Council said: "People are being offered rewards to kill, and to destroy churches and Christian properties. They are being offered foreign liquor, chicken, mutton and weapons. They are given petrol and kerosene."
    Ram Madhav, a spokesman for the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), the largest hardline Hindu group, denied the claims. "The accusation is absolutely false," he said.

    In recent weeks, the violence has subsided but at least 11,000 Christian refugees remain in camps in Kandhamal, the district worst affected. "They are too scared to go home. They know that if they return to their villages they will be forced to convert to Hinduism," Father Manoj, who is based at the Archbishop's office in Bhubaneshwar, Orissa's capital, said.
