Papua’s Christian Issues

Its always the same song they sing, if not about race then they use religion. Whatever works for them.

They really out of touch with the reality that while Indonesia predominantly Muslim, but Christian, Buddhist and Hindu and other religions are already existed longer and much longer in many parts of Indonesia then in Papua.

Do they know that cathedral in Jakarta and Semarang are among the oldest in Southeast Asia? Have they heard about Borobudur temple and hundreds of temple in Java that still been used by Buddhist pilgrim that came from all over Asia from Thailand to China and Japan?

Furthermore, talking about Islam and Christianity in Papua, Benny Wenda and his thugs forget that among the first missionaries arrived in the northern parts of Papua, they was helped and used boats and ships provided by Muslim sultanate of Ternate.

Moreover, talking about numbers of Christians in Java, Sulawesi, Maluku, Sumatra, and almost other islands in Indonesia is thousands of not million larger than the number of christian in the whole Papua.

So there you go, if not calling pure Melanesian race which is also existed in a much larger number are in other islands, at least in 5 provinces, and now they try using religion to show their case.

These complete lies and absurdity is a reflection of Benny Wenda and his OPM thugs true color of which spreading nothing to Papuans except murders, terrors and disgusts.

What else to say? Non.
