Attacks on Christian Churches are Self-Inflicted
Posted April 15, 2005
During the last few days there were reports of attacks on several Christian Churches by unidentified persons. In one recent case the Minister of Christian Affairs and the former Interior Minister himself accused the Evangelical Christian missions as the perpetrators of the crime. There are also reported events where the Evangelists themselves setting fire to their well guarded but ramshackle and illegal structures with the hope of building better structures – in the end with the full compliance from the Christian government in power. Therefore it is foolhardy for Sinhala Buddhists to take full responsibility for such acts.
Now let us look at the background in which these events are taking place.
Ø It is a well known fact that Sri Lanka has been targeted for conversion to Christianity by the Christian Church and the Western Powers. At present there are over 150 NGOs registered under the Company Act as legally operating companies, working within Sri Lanka with the single goal of converting Sri Lankans to Christianity. Whether it is the established churches or the new evangelical churches their goal is the same. In the case of Evangelical Churches their approach is direct, more open, vociferous and easily seen. In the case of the established churches it is more subtle, secretive and all encompassing. The goal of the Christian Church is to get the Christian population of the host nation past the 20% mark. It is their experience that the rest of the population will convert automatically by peer pressure and by emulation, as has happened in countries like South Korea, in the Philippines and in many minority ethnic enclaves in the rest of Asia not so long ago. The modus operandi of the Church in this respect is many and multifaceted.
Ø The Sri Lankan President and the Prime Minister are both Christians masquerading as Buddhists.
Ø The majority of the cabinet posts in the ruling party in Sri Lanka are held by Christians.
Ø The premier News Media group, the Lake House group founded by the Buddhist patriot D R Wijewardhana, although a nationalized enterprise is today in the hands of the Christians.
Ø All other news media are in the hands of the Christians or controlled by them. The newly appointed head of the government controlled Rupavahini is an ex evangelical pastor. He was also the ex Presidential spokesman. In most places it is Christians or their name sake Buddhist stooges who are looking after Buddhist Affairs.
Ø Christians occupy most other important positions in the administration and in the now very important business circles. What the Christians couldn't achieve with their coup in 1962, they have today accomplished without a shot being fired or even a finger being raised. Curious fact is that it is the majority Sinhala Buddhists who have voted these traitors into power.
Ø Christians are even the chief sponsors of Buddhist establishments. Eg: Kelani Raja Maha Viharaya, Kotte Raja Maha Viharaya, Dambulla Raja Maha Viharaya and Maha Bodhi Establishment – and who knows where else?.
By the foregoing it is abundantly clear that the Sinhalese Buddhists who comprise nearly 70% of the population in Sri Lanka are contained, gagged and tethered with little room to move. It is a tiny fraction of this population who silently came to pay respect to the Late Ven Gangodawila Soma Thero a few days ago. The others put up yellow flags all over the island for the same occasion. When an altercation took place at the funeral it was the Buddhists who were threatened by the all powerful Christian President. This is a common tactic employed by the Christian Governments in power since that of the treacherous J R Jayewardene administration. They have continued to threaten the Buddhists in the first place with the full force of law even for the tiniest infringement.
One of the most successful methods of the Christian Church, (be they Fundamentalist Evangelists or the already established Christian Church) is to provoke a poor third world population till there is a knee-jerk reaction like an isolated attack on an evangelist or a Christian Church. Immediately something untoward happens the news will be passed on to all wire services and electronic media that there has been a violation of human rights of innocent Christians. The real aggrieved party the Buddhists, Hindus or Muslims will go on to become the aggressors in the eyes of the world.
The intention is to make the Buddhists feel guilty collectively. The Buddhist body politic who are tethered, quartered and struggling for their last breadth are denied even in their death throes a final knee jerk to free themselves. The world media pounces back on the hapless Buddhists, calling them extremists, chauvinists, racists, violators of human rights and democratic freedoms. This same scenario is repeated elsewhere in majority Hindu India, majority Muslim Pakistan and Indonesia and all what we hear are attacks against 'innocent Christians and Christian Churches' and more and more crocodile tears from the Christian West.
We want the Christian West to know that we know of their designs for Asia in the 21st Century. Tobacco companies and the Christianity Inc are today in the same boat. They are rapidly loosing customers in the West. Now they are seeking a "rich harvest in the East" as very eloquently expressed by the aging Pope on his last visit to India.
In 1983 after the now infamous Tamil pogrom conducted by the goons of the then UNP regime, they cleverly manipulated the media to show that those who were responsible for the pogrom were the Sinhalese Buddhists. Christian - Ananda Tissa de Alwis the then Minister of Information and Constitutional Affairs went on to say that behind the Tamil pogrom, there were plans a foot for the Sinhala Buddhists to attack the Sinhala Christians. We know the truth – this lie was to make the Sinhala Buddhists feel collectively guilty and silent. The ruse worked and even to this day there are many idiotic Sinhalese who believe that Sinhala Buddhists were responsible for the pogrom. The fact is that the pogrom was the work of the UNP Mafia of which the present day Prime Minister of Batalanda fame was a key participant and a prime mover.
Add to this we too have among us a few misguided and misinformed individuals who start finger pointing at the Buddhists. For these few who see no evil, hear no evil and smell no evil of the Christian establishment should be told to remain silent, for they definitely cannot see the woods for the trees. They simply cannot seem to see the larger picture. The larger picture is that we are in the heights of a 500 year old saga of Christian domination of our political establishment. We have never been so insecure since Don Juan Dharmapala almost handed over sovereignty of Sri Lanka to the despicable Portuguese.
Then we have the "Enlightened Christians" who offer us a shoulder to cry on and side with the Sinhala Buddhists in condemning the acts of the Evangelists. In the process they are busy covering the tracks of their own churches who too are involved surreptitiously in destroying all what is Sinhala and Buddhist in our country.
The cultural invasion is on going with Buddhist terminology freely used to get their confused thinking across. Buddhist rituals are freely used to mask their actions. Christian children are given Buddhist sounding names so that they can mingle among Buddhists un-noticed. They simply have no shame left.
It is important to remember that there is not a single Christian Church of whatever denomination who does not have skeletons in their cupboards. They have all been involved with mass murder, religious inquisitions and genocide, slavery, culture destruction in one time or the other in history; the most recent being endorsing Nazi war crimes, protecting and sheltering war criminals and the genocide in Rwanda. Their pedophile priests are the toast of the world today!
On the other hand if there are truly Enlightened Christians who follow the true message of the Jesus Christ and not world domination through immoral and uncouth means, then they should all get together and confront their own Churches and their hierarchy about their despicable plans for Sri Lanka and the rest of Asia. They must tell the Church that they are not proud of their plans for Asia and of their secret plans to convert Buddhist and Hindus. Otherwise we want them to know, that they are just "Running with the hares and are secretively hunting with the hounds". Please don't come to infiltrate our organizations or movements for it is down right low, uncouth and despicable.
Enlightened Christians please form your own organization to save Sri Lanka from being destroyed. 2500 years of rich history, culture and achievements are also a part and parcel of your heritage. If you do this we will respect and honor you. First and foremost get yourselves exorcised of the devils that haunt you by confronting the devilish plans of your own church. If you love Jesus and his message of Love then you will not become tools of the institutionalized Christianity and its devilish manifestations for world domination by foul means.
To date, we are yet to encounter a single Church Organization who are for a Unitary Sri Lanka or are against the division and balkanization of Sri Lanka. The Christian Church in whatever manifestation, be it Catholic, Anglican, Methodist, Presbyterian or other has always fostered and promoted the larger interests of the Ealamists locally and most importantly internationally. In the ensuing balkanization of Sri Lanka, the Catholic Church is working secretively to establish its own enclave in the North Western Province of Sri Lanka. The recent ramblings at the Dambulla Raja Maha Viharaya is only the tip of the ice berg!
In this background it will be futile not to expect more attacks on Christian Churches in the future unless the World Wide Christian Church agrees not to harass third world populations with unethical religious conversions and other despicable actions. If there are any such attacks most will be self inflicted ones to lay blame on the Sinhala Buddhists. Any "knee jerk" reactions that may come from a population of a 13 Million Buddhists should be considered as inevitable and statistically not significant enough to lay blame on the entire Buddhist population. As Buddhists we do not condone violence but it is important to remember that we are yet to become Blameless Arahants!
While the Christian Administration and the world press are quick to pounce on the Buddhists for all the wrong reasons the same is not true for all the crimes committed by the Christian LTTE in Sri Lanka.
All press reports on the atrocities committed by the Tamil insurgency led by the Christian LTTE are justified and legitimized in two simple sentences which always read as follows:
"The Tiger insurgency was launched in 1983 on behalf of minority Hindu Tamils, who allege discrimination at the hands of the mostly Buddhist Sinhalese majority. The war has left 65,000 people dead."
The Hindus and Buddhists are now slowly coming to the inevitable conclusion that they are staring at each other for all the wrong reasons in the world. Buddhists and Hindus lived side by side for hundreds of years visiting each others temples and kovils till the Christian powers and the Christian Church came to Sri Lanka!
Only a true Buddhist leadership can return our beleaguered motherland to true peace. There can never be peace under the current incompetent Christian leadership. Every report on any future attacks on the Christian Establishment in Sri Lanka should be followed by this single sentence or sentences to the effect – "The attacks on Christian Churches in Sri Lanka and in the rest of Asia are outcomes of the misadventures of the Christian Church in Asia!"
