India?s Persecution of Christians Employs Movie Producers to Launch Anti-Christian Short Films

(PRWEB) October 30, 2005

The “Doing Hard Time for God!” crusade launched by Archbishop Gary Beaver of the Old Catholic Church of Great Britain has raised concern over the recent anti-Christian films produced by India’s mainstream film producers for viewing at local cinemas.

Archbishop Gary Beaver explained that India’s Hindu based caste system is some 3000 years old and even though it is banned by India’s Constitution, it is still very much a part of modern day life. If one is born to a family or a village of a low caste, your life is damned to holding nothing better than menial jobs and almost a slave type existence under the ancient social system.

The Indian Freedom of Religion Act states that anyone wishing to convert religion must first obtain permission from district officials. Clergy and religious leaders of Christian Churches must also receive official permission before the person converts. Should anyone convert without the legal permission, then the convert and the priest may face 4 years in prison and more than $ 2000 fine.

India’s lower-caste groups, the Dalit who number around 300 million, have been the focus of anti-conversion attacks as Christianity has brought them towards freedom and dignity.

A number of Indian states have passed, and more are joining the rush to pass anti-conversion laws outlawing the right to choose your own religion.

Movie producers have even gone so far as to release a “short film” disguised as a public service film into movie theatres in order to “educate” audiences about the Gujarat’s Freedom of Religion Act. The Act in question prohibits religious conversion [ by the use of force or allurement or by fraudulent means].

The offending public service film shows a cow grazing in a plush pasture, with a narration saying “You cannot make this cow a non-vegetarian, so why attempt to change someone’s religion?”

Archbishop Gary Beaver criticised the film as being deceptive and unlawful.

The carrying of the Good News to the Dalit’s has taught them Jesus’ words and allow them to embrace salvation in Christ , overcoming the belief that they are worthless but rather, precious children loved dearly by their Creator.

Basic Principles of Democratic Governance ? Why is the Concept of Separation of Church and State Important

The separation of church and state is one of the important principles upon which democratic constitutions are based. The concept rose at the onset of the Renaissance, from the indomitable hold of the Roman Catholic Church in world affairs. People felt that for a tolerant government, that is, a democratic government to thrive, the religious convictions must not be a factor in shaping national policies.

This concept was also held to be acceptable because of the fact that most democratic societies like the United States of America are not members of a single church – there are Protestants, Catholics, Jews, Moslems and the like, all of whom are major chunks of the population. Thus, the concept was further reinforced.

Throughout the decades, it has been shown that the definition of this concept is murky at best. This is due to the fact that a majority of a person’s beliefs is derived from his or religious affiliation (or non-affiliation, depending on the way one looks at it). Hence, there ensued an inevitable clash between the constitutional fundamentalists, and the average American. Just look at any coin and you can see the phrase, “In God We Trust.”

It is true that the society’s moral fiber is being stretched too thin, so that many advocacy groups call for the reordering the code of ethics of citizenship. However, one must realize that to formulate a public policy is to promulgate regulations that are based on tenets which are subscribed to by everyone. Hence, a policymaker cannot quote the bible to support his propositions, as there are many Americans who are not Christians to begin with. That is something that many of us must understand.

Instead of forcing our own beliefs on others, let us learn to respect every person’s religious disposition. If we feel that what we want to happen is right, and then let us find ways to impose them on people who share the same outlook. Democracy is all about respecting every human being for who he or she its, and not for his or her faith.

This clip comes from Aaron Russo’s film, America: Freedom to Fascism. You can watch the film online @ video.google.com Please learn the truth behind the income tax: it was created with the Federal Reserve Act in 1913 – its purpose being to fund the government to pay the interest incurred on government loans from the (private) Federal Reserve. In other words, the income tax is paid to central bankers, and have no gains to you whatsoever. Learn about how international bankers (such as the Rothschild’s and Rockefeller’s) have come to dominate the world through the control of financial systems, via their ownership of central banking institutions.
