Thank you for a thought provoking write up. Please make sure that this article is read by our Man Friday. I am sorry I cant write the response in Kannada script here, though I know it very well. Every word uttered by you is absolutely correct and represents the vast number of Christians in Mangalore. Let us also not leave out other denominations of Christians in any negotiations for peace with the fundamentalists. Perhaps, New Life people are doing what our catholic priests are not doing! that is, spreading of Christ's message! Our Bishop and the priests may be trying to live 'peacefully' without bothering about why we are Christians first!
