Comparisons with Christianity

Dear members:

There have been some posts recently comparing sanAtana/vedic
religion with Christianity, alongwith defensive arguments to
justify how our religion is as good as theirs, etc.

IMHO there is no need for such comparisons/defences which
arise from the petty efforts of proselytizing missionaries,
eager to take cheap shots at an ancient religion that has
stood the test of time.  There is a saying in colloquial
Hindi, that an elephant has no fear of a barking dog!

Once Sri Sadagopan had referred to a scholarly publication
called "The Veda and the Torah" - which compared the vedic
and semitic religions from a very academic standpoint.  I
feel we must limit our interactions with baahya mathams to
such intelligent curiousity only, instead of dignifiying
the malicious attempts of proselytizers by paying attention
to their unscrupulous, ignorant ramblings.

Truly,
-Srinath C.
