Jeyaraj attacks church hierarchy

    Good example of going out of your way to bring religion in the mixture and confuse the already confused masses.

    religion and politics ------ deadly cocktail.

    should be avoided at all costs.

    I thought Jeyaraj was a catholic. What exactly is he trying to achieve by attacking the church leaders?

    Looks like Jeyaraj is doing the JHU`s dirty work for them. Haven`t the church been demonised enough by the Sinhala buddhists over the last two years? What an idiot.

    Is Mr.jayaraj a true and evoteful catholic or a real culprit of bouddhist monks who have already destroyed many catholic churches and mosques?

    I don`t understand , why he is now pulling all these rubbish from the dust bin after cheating voters in favour of this extremist sinhalese government and can`t he see the whole situation in the north after the arrival of this most radical sinhalese party to the power?

    Where ever religion was integrated with the Government there was always a big Failure. If you want to genuinely develop a country DO NOT GIVE ANY STATE PATRONAGE TO ANY RELIGION. Propagation of a religion depend on how it is practiced and not by the legal status. Come to the canteen in the Peradeniya Campus and see how the young Priests behave. In Katukurunda in the Pansala see how the young Priests compete with the undergraduates to be friendly with girls. There were some excellent Persists like NARADA and even non Buddhists like me went to Vajirarama to listen to his sermons.

    I may be mistaken, I thought under democracy you are allowed to vote any party you wish. Political parties are formed to influence their ideas and they campaign their policies during election using various media.

    What I cannot understand is why this high ranking minister complaining the political process? The election is over and done with now. Why is he talking about election results now?

    Does he understand his role in the political process?

    I am totally confused. I do not understand anything of this at all. zilch, zero. I may be a total idiot I don`t care.

    I think Jeyraj shouldn`t have brought this issue now though it`s valid. Being a Catholic, I was critical of our ArchBishop`s message just before the election. He was indirectly asking people to vote for Ranil. I know a lot of priests preached in favor of Ranil. Actually they have overestimated their influence on political choices of the Catholic population. Church should not get into politics.

    Still, Jayraj should keep his mouth shut and should work for religious harmony among all.

    As acknoledged by themselves most of them are confussed when someone talks the truth.

    This is not a new phenomina in the Catholic world. For them Galilio was wrong and poisoned to kill by the church.

    There are numerous idiotic preaches spread by the Church from begining of it. But the difference is now people do not believe them. The best example is Mahinda`s win.
