I have watched the God Channel from time to time; I am totally gobsmacked by the total garbage which flows from the mouths of those TV evangelist conmen! It is so very sad that some people are gullible enough to believe every word they say, and line their pockets very generously.

My late elderly, wealthy, great aunt, a Christian, was somehow conned into giving that shyster, Oral Roberts, several thousands of pounds in the 60s, he even sent her one of his grotty plastic prayer towers as a thank you! Her son soon put a stop to it when he discovered what was going on.

Some years ago my brother-in-law and his wife were in America and went to see Benny Hinn in action. Apparently the guy can put on quite a show, rather like that of a first class magician, so it is no wonder the more gullible are taken in by his less than credible garbage.

I came across this website.

theevangelists.blogspot.co.uk/2011/04/hall-of-shame.html

If they were secular conmen people might not be taken in quite so easily.

There is no word for 'secular' in any of the indian languages.

There is the vastest vocabulary for positive words like life, wisdom, values..

There don't exist negative words like 'secular'.

Where divorce, racism and religions don't exist, there is no need to include those junk words.

None of those words exist in any of the Indian languages and dialects? How very constraining.

When something bad doesn't happen, people don't need to worry about that.

Note two more - 'Suicide' and 'prostitution'.

Wow, what a limiting group of languages. Conversly, what a wonderful society where suicide, prostitution, divorce, racism and religion are so rare as to not need a descrptive word.

How about "honour killing" and "casteism"? I expect there are lots of words for those!

By the way, I don't believe you about those things not happening.

Where no religions are present , secularism is non existent.

No, these are the crimes only committed very recently.

Caste system doesn't exist in India.

We never married our cousins.

Hmm..

Unfortunately, that's not the case. India today, is even lesser developed than western world. Heck, thieves like Einstein are considered great scientists by many.

"Secular" is no more negative than "Religious". They both reflect a position on a subject. Sorry your grasp of language is biased.

I don't get what actually you are asking.
You asked for it:

When you feel really down in the dumps and just want to end it all would you say, :"oh, great jumping chapattis, I think I am going to be making myself go to the great Maharaja in the sky."

And when you feel in need of some feminine company would you approach a woman and ask: "most gracious lady of the street, it is being such a lovely sari that you seem to be wearing. It must be looking even more so lovely on my bedroom floor."

There don't exist negative words like 'secular'.

Must have ver limited vocabularies.

Where divorce, racism and religions don't exist, there is no need to include those junk words.

None of those words exist in any of the Indian languages and dialects? How very constraining.

When something bad doesn't happen, people don't need to worry about that.

Note two more - 'Suicide' and 'prostitution'.
What do you say then?
"self visitation to heaven" and "self-funded lady" ?

I don't get what actually you are asking.
You asked for it:

When you feel really down in the dumps and just want to end it all would you say, :"oh, great jumping chapattis, I think I am going to be making myself go to the great Maharaja in the sky."

And when you feel in need of some feminine company would you approach a woman and ask: "most gracious lady of the street, it is being such a lovely sari that you seem to be wearing. It must be looking even more so lovely on my bedroom floor."

There is NO concept of heaven / hell in sanatan dharm.

"Secular" is no more negative than "Religious". They both reflect a position on a subject. Sorry your grasp of language is biased.

I have written - Religion and Secularism are two negative things. Both of them were non existent in Ancient India.

Doubtless you can prove that assertion?

Present day India is a living proof.

People are just too open minded to have been brought up in a religious environment.
