Dear Mr. Power Privilege If I am not mistaken, "Inquisition" is a Catholic phenomena. Goa was a Portuguese enclave in India. This and the "The Surprising Discovery..." article refer specifically to Evangelical Protestant Missionaries. Same Bible, different organizations, different approaches, different outcomes. Please do more honest research.

I have issues with the implications of your comment "power privilege". The article "The Surprising Discovery About Those Colonialist, Proselytizing Missionaries" on CT suggests that it was the independent from any colonial power/government; Protestant missionary who were responsible huge changes and improvements in the quality of life. Likewise the book "God Is Red: The Secret Story of How Christianity Survived and Flourished in Communist China" by [Liao Yiwu], strongly supports that thesis. As I have met some of the people refereed too and my parents were with the CIM, the book seems quite consistent to my parent’s recollections. What is reported is consistent with the article above. I wonder if your example is why parts of S Am., Timor and the Philippines are so economically backward now, few independent missionaries 100 or so years ago with ownership of the Church not in the hands of the people.

He would not say the same thing if he lived during the Goa Inquisition - much like the Spanish Inquisition. Where Christians burnt the homes and temples of people from other faiths [Hindus, Jews and Muslim]; proselyting them with intimidation. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goa_Inquisition
