As a Practising Catholic which of these statements are not correct?

1.All religions are at par.

“Catholicism and Hinduism lead to the same Divine.“

2.“It is my belief that this bid to convert stems from an inability to understand the saving grace of God in other religions.”

3. I would like Christianity defined in some way other than by the waters of Baptism. 

4.Teachings that “only Jesus is God” stand in direct opposition to what her children learned at home…” Tell them you are a HIndu who wants to know more about Christ”


5. “I have no inhibitions about my children worshipping the Hindu pantheon… I settle for the more universal “Om Shanti”… With much regret,

I also make Jesus take backseat… Sometimes
I find it awkward praying before the picture of Krishna and Radha“. “[W]e were teaching them about the One Universal God.“

6.Despite the misgivings of the hierarchy, I agreed to bring up my children in two religious traditions , leaving them free to choose their own response to God


7.She gave her children “the essence of religion without getting entangled in dogma, rituals etc.“

8. She calls her children “Hindu-Catholics”.

What, for instance do we write as our children’s religion when filling up their school admission applications? So far, we have settled for “Hindu-Catholics”.

8.No family prayers: “as a couple somehow we never succeeded in saying “daily” prayers together.“

.9. “Hinduism affirmed my yearning for a Mother God who had been denied to me for so long.
It put me in contact with the Universal God whose revelation cannot be limited.”

10 We are no longer concerned about what the church or the community expects, but about how we can express our respect and love for each other… As a result , our lives have been enriched with a cultural and religious diversity , and God,divested of so many limiting beliefs.

About The Voice Of Bombay's Catholic Laity

Bombay Laity Ezekiel’s Chapter 3 Task as Watchman 17 “Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the people of Israel; so hear the word I speak and give them warning from me. 18 When I say to a wicked person, ‘You will surely die,’ and you do not warn them or speak out to dissuade them from their evil ways in order to save their life, that wicked person will die for[b] their sin, and I will hold you accountable for their blood. 19 But if you do warn the wicked person and they do not turn from their wickedness or from their evil ways, they will die for their sin; but you will have saved yourself.

    Who is this One Universal God, if you make Jesus to take backseat?

    If these comments are from the mouth of a Christian, then they are not in communion with the Church. Church should expel them from all the ecclesiastical authority. They have no right to be in any church office. Communion with the Church is under threat.

    These are the self-styled saviors. Blind guides seeking to lead the blind in the hierarchy of the Church, Confused lots as you can see from close reading of their thoughts, the Spiritually corrupt and seeking to corrupt the concept of God and hence no different than the political corrupt class, They have a god-father among the bishops of the catholic Church in Mumbai and it is no secret, Their god is their hunger for power (shakti) and many a times men seem to be obstacles to that craving for power and those men who are in power don’t mind sharing their power bed with them because these enhance their power or at least make them feel so. Thus they find them sensible and pit them against the seekers of truth and justice,

    These don’t mind being used and abused as long as they are given the power to destroy the church of Christ Jesus and defame his word. They use the word of God and the teachings of the church by selectively reading into it. Their wicked corruption is so deep that they present their word as the word of the lord. They testify their wares with false testimonies, and raising what is corruptly human to the level of the divine. They are creatures walking towards their doom

    Save your church Lord from the snares set by the Fowler!

    St. Michael the Archangel: defend us in the day of battle
    Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of these evil one …

    • Hi Allan, I believe we can take these on and expose them. The laity are getting more and more aware.Gone are the days when we saw a catholic priest, we believed they were men of God. I am sure with our exposures after verifying the correct picture we can and will be able to expose those repeat those who bring down the catholic values of our Church..
      The process has begin, we need to unite and keep up the pressure.

  4. Instead of publishing some statements by some unnamed author, and causing confusion in the minds of an already confused faithful, would it not have been better to put forward a correct version of what the Church teaches as correct and proper. As far as we Catholics are concerned, there is no half way house or middle path; there are our doctrines and teachings contained in the Scriptures, properly defined; and we are required to believe and follow them. Therefore I feel these sort of grey area/confusing utterances should have no place in this publication.
