Got this thought as I was thinking about conversion by religions and missionaries …
If someone tried to convert me, a Jain (ok, Hindu to the rest of you), into a Muslim or Christian – the one question I would ask them is …
Does your religion find it ok to have a honest/truthful Hindu living on this planet or will it rather have a converted, but dishonest, person?
Because thats what I would become, if ever converted.
Dishonest to what I started out with.
Whats to stop a converted person to convert to another religion/faith in the future?
Funnily, I was reminded of this after watching The Ghost and the Darkness (Val Kilmer, et al). In this movie, the stupid British send christian missionaries into Africa to convert the natives.
What cracks me up – Going to London and end up calling them the natives.
Har har har
