    Under the BJP/RSS Government in New Delhi, anti-Christian attacks have been considerably increased. The street goons who are enjoying the cution of the defenseless Christian community of India got the indirect inspiration to carry on their terrorism since their bosses are ruling now. PM Modi will shed some tears once in a while but showing a cold heart apathy towards this critical crisis faced with the nation with the le as a secular nation. Both in Haryana and Maharastra, when BJP came into power, they enacted laws to punish the cow mother killers with 10 and 5 years prison term along with monetary penalty. But surprisingly, as yet in three years, why the Central Government while watching this national malady of minority attacks of the Muslims and Christians, no laws are made? The whole world is watching this tragedy upon India, and the Indian Government can't hide under any excuse.

        Jesus wept: There were 120,000 reported incidents of Christian pastors molesting kids — in just the last month The arrest of a Christian school prin l in Port Angeles, Washington for secxually assaulting two pre-teen girls brings to light, once again, what appears to be an epidemic of secxual predators in Christian churches and schools. According to the Crimes Against Children Research Center, 3 in 5 girls and 15 in 20 boys is a victim of child secxual abuse by Christian church priests. The exact number of actual secxual assaults is unknown since many victims never speak up or, in some cases like Florida, the secxual assault is hushed up.
