Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, November 21, 2018

An American self-styled adventurer and Christian missionary has been killed and buried by a tribe of hunter-gatherers on a remote island in the Indian Ocean where he had gone to proselytize, local law enforcement officials said on Wednesday. John Allen Chau, 26, was slain on North Sentinel Island, which is home to what is considered the last pre-Neolithic tribe in the world and typically out of bounds to visitors, said Dependra Pathak, the director general of police in Andaman and Nicobar. ... "I have been so nice to them. Why are they so angry and so aggressive?" the source quoted Chau as saying.

I don't agree with the idea of this being murder. They have every right to defend their territory.

Chau also said in the blog: "I definitely get my inspiration for life from Jesus."

In that case, it's a shame the natives didn't nail him to a cross.

It was not "murder".

It was Suicide by pre-Neolithic Tribes.

THIS is why I don't worship Jesus anymore.

He says He will protect you but He never does.

This guy should have had a Dog. A big Dog.

My Dog gives me more protection and comfort than Jesus does.

That is why I now worship Dog instead of God.

It wasn't murder. God had nothing to do with this. And there is no magical evangelical shield to protect anybody from their own stupidity.

Don't preach jesus to a neolithic man
no holy ghost in the neolithic plan
talked about the trinity, asked them what they had to say
that's when they killed him
that's how the neolithic pray

Homo sapiens been around for 30-50K years... and this is the last and obviously very committed hold outs of stone-age subsistence group of people... and this guy thinks all they need is to see the love of Cheezus to bring them to Cheezus... and get all civilized 'n stuff.

Why does Cheezus send in these clowns to do his work?

Furthermore... bringing everyone to Cheezus is obviously too big a job for one Save-yer... so why doesn't Gawd the most omniscient of the omnipotent big daddy beings have more children? Did he have only one swimmer?

Why dump it all on one guy...his only son... that is temporarily dead... and a bunch of later-day theatrical understudies and wannabees?

This really struck me. This is a person who is only engrossed in his own environment. He doesnt see how it affects those he is contacting. Not everyone wants to hear about how YOU are doing things. I am very aware not to be super pious. Not everyone is ready to have their worldview tested.

It would be no different if a muslim came into their home and tried to convert them to Islam. And I noticed, he didnt do any "preaching" in the Islamic Area's of India. The result would have probably been the same.

So you think comparing pre-neolithics who are so primitive they can't even farm not to mention read and write, attack and kill peaceful strangers, don't speak a language of anyone else in the world to it sounds like you are saying American Conservatives is a fair comparison?

Ok, I can go along with that - just remember you are the one that made it.

Galaxie,

It's not about how advanced the people are. They just want their country as they see it to be respected. This guy thought he had a right to intrude upon them. He doesnt. But liberals think it's ok for people from other nations to just come right in and start enjoying benefits other people's worked hard for. It's not right.

So all cultures aren't the same?

Meaning, some cultures are so inferior they can say, kill people that want live near them. Other cultures require say, a large amount of money to become a citizen, and others require you to at least have a job, have borders and defend them.

Yet somehow here in the US its acceptable to come without anything, because we are so superior?

This is nothing but moral relativism on display because we are taught in our schools that no culture is better than another.

To summarize the elite liberal mindset on display here.

1. All cultures are equal.
2. Some are more equal than others.
3. We will tell you which is which.

That the instinctual, evolutionary mindset of defending ones culture is only for inferior cultures, Sentinel, Canadians and the French. But for you; Boaz to want to defend your culture is abhorrent and you must be a racist, of NAZI proportions.

While at the same time the elite liberal mindset will tear down this superior culture of ..

1. NASCAR preferring F1.
2. NFL preferring MLS.
3. Country music.
4. Catholic religion.
5. Open borders, bring your culture, no assimilation needed/warranted as we don't like ours.

People like yourself and Boaz used to think Irish and Catholics were inferior. And the Chinese. Japanese. Africans. Cubans. Mexicans, and on and on and on...

The same arguments were made then as they are with you now.

These people have been studied thoroughly. They are aware there is an outside world and would like to carefully preserve their separateness from it like any intelligent group would do if they had the chance.

Ummmm you went to war because our "Conservative" government wanted access to oil.

Unless I'm mistaken and you weren't deployed to Iraq.

In which case you didn't personally do what you're condemning but you supported a malicious group of people who used our government, military and world standing to do exactly what you condemn.

Actually, Jesus thought it was ok. In fact, he taught we should be welcoming strangers in need, and give them the shirts off our backs if warranted.

Namely because "Conservative" culture is garbage that largely produces fat, lazy hypocrites who's only goal is self-enrichment.

Like any good Christian would, the family has already forgave the savages.

I bet they haven't considered forgiving themselves for pushing such evangelical, witnessing dogma such that your son will feel compelled to be the one to FINALLY convert those who cannot be contacted. Christians prop up dead Christians who successfully spread "god's word," making them celebrities in the church. "Be like them! Be like the celebrities!"

That's all this kid was doing and it got him killed, much like untold numbers of witnessing evangelicals before him.
