Don’t say it, don’t say it, don’t say it.
Where is your God now?

An American Christian believed to have been engaged in missionary work appears to have been killed by tribespeople from one of the world’s most isolated communities, on a remote island hundreds of miles off the coast of India, according to officials.
The 27-year-old American, identified as John Allen Chau, came to India on a tourist visa but came to the Andaman and Nicobar islands in October with the express purpose of proselytizing, Dependra Pathak, director general of police of the Andaman and Nicobar islands, told CNN.
“We refuse to call him a tourist. Yes, he came on a tourist visa but he came with a specific purpose to preach on a prohibited island,” Pathak said.
Chau did not inform the police of his intentions to travel to the island to attempt to convert its inhabitants, officials said.
The island, North Sentinel Island, is inhabited by the Sentinelese, who are protected under Indian law. Just more than a dozen people are officially thought to live on the remote island in the Andaman and Nicobar archipelago.
The island is a protected area, and people are not allowed to go within 5 nautical miles of it, after previous incidents of aggressive behavior toward outsiders were observed. In 2006, two local fishermen were killed by the tribes.
Here is a documentary made about the island people many years ago.
Look I know it is not kind to speak ill of the dead, but what a fucking moron!
I mean the arrogance of this religious zealot to believe that he must “save the souls” of these clearly uninterested people is the very pinnacle of arrogance.
First off even believing that you are such a genius that you have managed to discern the one true God, is the very height of arrogance.
But then to believe that you must tell everybody on the planet that they must also worship the same God that you do…well that kind of deserves a spear in the chest.
