    Gujarat Elections 2017: In a signed letter Archdiocese of Gandhinagar Archbishop Thomas Macwan has urged Christians to pray for the election of humane leaders to save India from nationalist forces. The letter on behalf of al Bishops of Churches in the state have urged Christians to organise prayer services so that people who are faithful to the Indian Constitution could be elected. “The Bishops of Gujarat state request you to organise prayer services in your parishes and convents so that people, who would remain faithful to our Indian Constitution and respect every human being without any discrimination, are elected in the Gujarat state Assembly,” said the letter signed by Macwan on November 21.

    The official communique termed Gujarat elections as “significant” for the future of India. Without mentioning the name of any political party, the letter, however, urged Christians to pray for the defeat of nationalist forces.

    “The dates of the Gujarat state Assembly (polls) have been declared.The results of this election are significant and it will have its repercussion and reverberation throughout our beloved nation. It will influence the course of our country. We are aware that the secular and democratic fabric of our country is at stake. Human Rights are being violated. The constitutional rights are being trampled. Not a single day goes without an attack on our churches, faithful or institutions. There is a growing sense of insecurity among the minorities, OBCs, BCs, poor and so on. Nationalist forces are on the verge of taking over the country. The election results of Gujarat State Assembly can make a difference.”

    Here is the Letter:

    Citing examples from history prayers to Mother Mary had helped in the defeat of tyrannical forces, the letter said, “The recitation of the Holy Rosary at individual, community, family and parish-levels will be of great help. It saved Europe from being taken over by the people of other faith. Communist governments and dictators in a number of countries have been tumbled in the past through the protecting hand of our beloved Mother Mary. It has brought the level of abortion incidents in Poland from 30% to 4%. It will save our country from nationalist forces too. Even the Lord, while he was praying in the garden of Gethsemane (where Jesus Christ prayed the night before his crucifixion), had asked his disciple to watch and pray. Let us take his advice seriously. Let us trust our Lord Jesus and ask for His help.”

    I have no idea why they are talking about every human being, they divide people into two groups and preach that believers belong to kingdom of Christ and remaining will go to hell.

    He is lying in this regard.

    Saving india from nationalist forces ? o_O

    After Goa, now Gujarat. Wow !!!

    The letter says, not a single day goes without attack on Churches , really ?? I don't even remember when last time it happen in Gujarat. If it would have happened there would've been endless debates over it on media, and PIDIs would have declared Modi fascist.

    Was this preta ordered by Vatican to support Raul Gandhini? They generally don't do things without support from above.

    Why would this moron do such a thing? Christians hold no sway in the cow belt. Not exactly the Kingmakers eh.

    Or maybe he is not right in the head and really truly believes that the Jewish lady who died 2000 years ago will waive a magic wand and remove "nationalist forces" from the voting machines. A Christian version of "aaloo dalo sona nikalo".

    guys from long long so long ago. I always said this when people convert in to non Indic religions there aligience changes to the parent host country of that religion.

    this is exactly whats happening in Christians (not all of them taqquiya) but some of the rascals like this bishop.

    thats why I came to conclusion a rw extremist will always stay loyal to his land because he got no other of his own country. but a convert got second place he can brag about.

    this idiotic bishop and congi party behind him are exactly trying to exploit this fault line.

    this missionary funds and conversions are not done for human rights or poverty. missionary work en funds are provided to develop ecosystem and kneel Indian government in front of them for implementing covert country policies or some times used for grooming commies en naxals.

    this ba$tard just exposed himself.

    I wish this letter gets more attention....

    Frankly speaking, Christianity has little or no affect on the elections especially in Gujarat.

    This is too obvious isn't it. The Bishop is asking to vote against BJP. Ordinary voters who are in a state of confusion(whether to vote BJP or not) might change their decisions after this message.

    Even if ordinary people ignore it, most of other casts generally vote congess. So I don't think this message will help.

    Don't worry guys, Modi & Shah are playing their games quite well. Isn't it obvious that Triple Talaq came into picture in just nick of time!? Sure the Winter Parliament Session has got atleast 3 weeks and the Gujarat elections are 2 weeks away. If I am not wrong, MSM will find atleast one more divorce on Triple Talaq.

    Thus I rest my case. Wish there is someone from Gujarat state, providing the real time updates from ground zero.

    ^^ Well these people knows more than us, they have long experience in such tacticts. They know it might work.
    Just read this tweet y'day, if they can forgive such crime in a country like USA, favoring voting is not a big deal.

    Converts have to Work overtime to prove their loyalty to their masters who funds them. These are evil forces. We should make sure that they die their own way.

    Church people should stop involving themselves from this type of scenario. Can they just let the government work?

    We shouldn't be surprised, after all these Abrahamic religions are nothing but political ideologies. These kind of activities are daily routine for them, it's just that they have come in open now.

    Funny. Their work itself is interfering with the govt. What else would they do with their bundles of cash sent from 'the church'?
