For those of you who think that the depredations of monotheism are a thing of the past, think again. A few days ago, I was sent this website: http://tribune.com.pk/story/278333/under-threat-conversions-threatening-pakistans-macedonian-tribe/
. It talks about the attempts by militant Muslims to convert members of the indigenous, polytheistic Kalash tribe. It hasn't come to violence...yet, but the article clearly draws the parallel between conversion and the destruction of indigenous culture, as well as monotheistic brainwashing.
May our ancestors reach out and support those of the Kalash who are staying strong and true to their ancestors and their Gods. May this tribe never, ever give in to the push and sway and coercion of their monotheistic neighbors. May they be protected and may their luck and lives flourish.
