India is already extremely multicultural so I get that they have to accept the cultures that are already entrenched. I've been to India and my impression is that Indians are actually much more tolerant of religious diversity than America. Imagine an upper middle class American neighborhood being woken up at 4 AM every morning by a Muslim minority's call to prayer. Myanmar though. I get why they wouldn't want Islam expanding there. With all of the problems they have I'm willing to ignore how they go about weeding out Islam. I'm not saying it's right or I agree with it. I'm just saying equal rights for Muslims in Myanmar isn't at the top of my list. I get that Myanmar doesn't want to be a North Korean/Pakistani hybrid.

If you live in India, militant Hinduism can be as dangerous as ISIL. They have killed Christian missionaries. And Muslims.

I really don't give a fuck what happens to Christian missionaries.

NOTE TO ANY CREATORS OF NEW RELIGIONS OUT THERE: Don't choose an animal as your "holy" icon that is in any way edible. Pick something that most people aren't gonna wanna fuck with... like a great white shark, or a scorpion or something.


Google scorpions on a stick.
Scratch that one.

Its not just the religious that go mental like this, I remember when Steve Irwin died at the fins of a stingray there were revenge attacks against several stingrays in Australia, not quite the same thing I know but bonkers nonetheless.

So, religious murder is OK by you?

When I shake my ignore file, I can hear them buzzing!

If that's the phrase you want to use to describe when western Christian missionaries get killed spreading their bullshit message where they are not wanted and ok means I don't give a fuck then yes.

It will soon be spring here in Texas. A couple of days of warm spring rains and the shroom hunters will head out to the cow pastures outside of town to pick psilocybin
shrooms. A real religious experience.

I have no beef with that. It's all a bunch of bull anyway.

No, no, no, you're doing it wrong! You make the eating of a holy thing as a consecration to your particular deity.

The Christians are told to eat the body and drink the blood of Christ, they actually sanctioned cannibalism by ritual!

Try saying that to a New Zealander and see how far it gets you. And don't question the gumboots he's carrying either LOL.

I'm a creationist... I believe that man created God.
