Last Friday night a New York Times headline underwent an online transformation. The article formerly known as “A Christian Overture to Muslims Has Its Critics” acquired a new billing: “A Dispute on Using the Koran as a Path to Jesus.”
For my money this was a big improvement, and explaining what I mean will illuminate a dirty little secret: some American Christians are fostering religious strife abroad. They mean well, but the damage they’re doing can be seen all the way from Nigeria, where Christians and Muslims are killing each other, to Malaysia, where Muslims are trying to keep Christians from using the term “Allah” for God.
Radical Amercian Christians currently pose the most dangerous threat for Hinduism in India. Their hand can be seen everywhere, from murder charge on Shankracharya to the murder of Swami Laxmanananda Saraswati in Orissa and Swami Nithyananda’s sting operation to funnelling arms to NE terrorists, Indian Maoists and Tamil Dravidians. These are sick people who are a burden on humanity.
