A top official in Japan’s new ruling Democratic Party has saidChristianity is “exclusive and self-righteous” and claimed that US andEuropean societies with a Christian background are “stuck at animpasse.”
An impass? This whole thing is hard to comprehend. So what’s his point?
I might add that if, as the article says, he believes Christianity is more exclusive and self-righteous than Islam, he couldn’t know very much about either of them.
I like how he calls Christianity ‘exclusive’. The only barrier it has to admission is sharing beliefs, which coincidentally is what defines a member of any religion (or any ideology for that matter).
Man, those Marxists are so ‘exclusive’… you have to believe in Marxism to be one! :rotfl:
So Emperor and ancestor worship somehow make for a better society?
The Japanese, who are possibly the most ethnocentrically-bigoted people on the surface of the planet, have very little room to talk about exclusivity in anything.
