KY GOPer: Iím Not Criticizing Hindus ó Iím Inviting Them To ĎLove And Know Jesusí
The stupid is strong in this one.


At a campaign stop on Thursday, Kentucky Republican gubernatorial candidate David Williams, who is also president of the state Senate, took some more time to explain what he called ďa little controversy thatís happenedĒ ó and called upon Hindus to come to Jesus.

The controversy in question, of course, is Williamsís attack on Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear participating in a Hindu religious ceremony at the groundbreaking for a factory run by an Indian company.

1. Williams is obviously
in the wrong profession. If he want to be a preacher then he needs to get out of politics and go to seminary school.

2. Yes, he is criticizing them.
Why else would he try to change their religious beliefs? The "I'm better than you" republicants.

3. Maybe he should get to know Krishna...

edited: to change Vishnu to Krishna, as that's probably a more direct parallel...

5. No, you were correct with Krishna
And it's important in the esoteric sense to notice that both names Christ and Krishna begin with the same Letter/Sound.

7. Further to that, I like the Baha'i idea
that Moses, Zoroaster, Buddha, Krishna, Christ, Mohammed, Guru Nanak etc are all messengers from one big global religion...

8. I have a book about the similarities between hindu, buddhism and christianity
Of course, hinduism and buddhism is older than christianity. I worked at my friend's store that sold hindu, buddhist, christian things and one day a man came in and asked me about what I thought of those other beliefs? I told him that they are older than christianity and everyone has a right to their own beliefs. He started the "in my heart, I know christianity is only the right one." I told him, "good for you, and in a hindu's heart, a buddhist's heart, don't you think they also think they are the right one, for them?"

I'm more of a "I don't know and you don't know either" type of person.

10. I'm the same.
I think that all religions have their pluses and minuses but they also have a lot in common, it's just that the different languages and terminology get in the way of seeing that.

4. Hindusim is far older than Christianity.

His pleas are unlikely to move its adherents.

11. As a politician it is not his job to be a preacher.
