Barack Obama @ the Evangelist OR across the religion into the God
Barack Obama, the President of USA, is said to be the most powerful person on Earth. There are exceptions to this notion, for example, control of guns in this President’s land. America is notorious for killings by guns held by private persons. There was a news the other day when a 2 year old shot himself with his father’s gun. Barack Obama had tried to bring a new law to control the issue of guns, but failed. The powers behind the guns are mightier than the President and the guns are ‘safe’ from laws.
The President before departing from India made a gun shot – said something about Article 25 of the Constitution of India to ensure religious freedom here. It is said that the President stated this under pressure from Evangelists in the US.
St. Thomas brought Christianity to India in 52 AD via Kerala. Missionaries have done great works in India – schools, hospitals etc. Many downtrodden Hindus readily embraced Christianity as they were treated like human beings. India allows people to convert to other religion at their will.
A person who converts to another religion has the right to convert to a new religion or reconvert to his original religion. When a person feels disappointed with his religion he feels attracted to a new religion and if at a later stage he feels that his original religion has changed he may come back. The right given by our Constitution doesn’t stop with conversion but allows re conversion also. We should remember that one of the sons of Mahatma Gandhi changed religion and later came back.
Like a coin which has two sides the other side of conversion is reconversion
