Do you know that nearly 3,000 RSS members eat beef and the Sangh is OK with it

12 Dec. Now, this should be the end of it!

The report from http://www.catchnews.com says this all. How do you react to all the violence unleashed by various organisations swearing allegiance to the RSS across the country and this revelation?

Do you know that nearly 3,000 RSS members eat beef and the Sangh is OK with it

The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) has around 3,000 members in Arunachal Pradesh, many of whom do consume beef. This fact was shared by RSS representatives during a media interaction in Arunachal Pradesh on 8 December.

The RSS is apparently making an effort to ward off the image of being against beef-eaters. Eating beef cannot come in the way of becoming a member of the RSS, its all-India prachar pramukh Manmohan Vaidya was quoted as saying by The Telegraph.

Vaidya made this statement while addressing reporters during his three-day visit to Arunachal Pradesh.

“We want to make India the number one country. RSS is not a religious organisation, but a social one,” he claimed.

Vaidya said that RSS has nothing to do with the beef ban and the organisation is only opposed to anti-national activities. “The RSS has nothing to do with the food habits of people,” he said




Missing Fr Munachi

12 Dec. It was a shock. When I visited his website of sermons, a treasure for pastors and preachers-after a long time-, I was shocked. Someone mourned on his website that he would miss Fr Munachi. To know that Fr Munachi had died in February 2015, and to know that after so many months! Sad. R.I.P., Fr Munachi.

His homilies were very short, and down to earth. They gave a sharp insight into the life of Christ and the Church. Often, there was some pinching story or a punching punchline! And you remembered so much of it.

The scripture scholar also made a distinct African contribution to theology – for him Jesus was Africa’s gift to the world. He believed, according to the Scriptures, Jesus was born in Egypt, that Mary was an Egyptian. Since Joseph, the descendant of Abraham and King David, was only foster father of Jesus, Jesus was son of Mary. Hence, to believe that Jesus was “Son of David”, was an act of faith, whereas to believe Jesus to be Son of God was an act of biological extension – since Mary was an Egyptian. He had some good insights into the Scriptures.

Many will miss him. May God grant his eternal rest.
