The Conversion Agenda

"Freedom to convert" is counterproductive as a generalized doctrine. It fails to come to terms with the complex interrelationships between self and society that make the concept of individual choice meaningful. Hence, religious conversion undermines, and in extremes would dissolve, that individual autonomy and human freedom.

Fiji Temple Robbed Five years in a Row: Christians Suspected

NEWTOWN, FIJI, January 27, 2005

A Hindu temple located at Salato Circle in Newtown, Nasinu, was broken into for the fifth time in as many years early Thursday morning. The trustee of Shree Ram Krishna Mandir, Ramen Singh, said the break-in occurred at around midnight with thieves getting away with $2000 worth of musical instruments and other valuable items. He said the thieves ran away when the neighbors raised the alarm after hearing noises in the temple. "This particular break-in has really hit us hard. In 2003, around $1300 worth of equipment and instruments were stolen and we worked hard to get them replaced. I don't know how we'll replace them this time," said Singh. "The fact that the instruments and other valuables were taken doesn't hurt us as much as the desecration of our temple." Singh said his temple was continuous targeted by thieves because the police were unable to make arrests. "Not a single person has been caught by the police in relation to the break-ins at our temple. We don't even have police patrols in our area," he said.
