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.

This is vote bank

No political party can come to power in Tamil Nadu without the support of minorities�, asserted Bishop Peter Fernando, chief of Madurai Diocese, while talking to presspersons in Madurai recently after a meeting of a political convention of catholic Christians of Tamil Nadu and Podicherry. The Bishop demanded fulfilment of the election promise by parties, namely, reservation for Christians and Muslims. The meeting also passed a resolution demanding that cemetries be handed over to the Christian community. The meeting repeated the demand for resrvation to �Dalit Christians� on par with Hindu Harijans. The meeting called upon Christians in all political parties to work for religious interests as parties divide Christians.
