One of my friends at work told me a funny story last week. She's from India and lives in a posh part of Hampshire. "Not many Indians in that town, I think," she joked. She said a born-again Christian came to her door recently and tried to convert her, telling her about the wonders of Jesus. "I'm Hindu," she told him, as he continued to try and talk her into his religion.
Finally, she said, she got annoyed. "You name one god in your religion who is a woman," she said. "We have hundreds of female gods in Hinduism. We have equal rights. Where is the equality in your religion?"
She said he left immediately after that.
(I can't tell the story as well as she told it to me last week, but I have never thought of such a thing before and wanted to tell you guys. What an original point of view -- I was impressed by her chutzpah, if I can use that term in this post. :) )
