Who misguided you? I am one of those of the Christian community who have enterd most of these churches. No one prevents you from entering these churches, even if you are not a christian. Never form an opinion from hearsay. Come to my place, I shall show you hindus coming to the churches and offering orayers. You are terribly mistaken Mr. Ganguly .

Hey the person.......who has put this is the most dumbest idiot in the world.......There is no problems amongst the Syrian and Latin christians. It's just they are two different Rites of the Catholic Church in India. and all the Catholic, Orthodox and protestant churches meet at a common platform through Ecumenism. Also known as ECUMENICAL DIALOGUE. Everything is the same. It's just that people retain their tradition. Even people from different christians are allowed to marry from whichever denomination by taking the local bishops permission and nobody is against anything. No one prevents anyone from entering any churches or in offering prayers. The truth is that you know nothing about Christianity. Mr. Ganguly, You are a RELIGIOUS FANATIC. WORST THAN A VHP LEADER.

Utter foolishness has been shared by Mr. ganguly. latin and syrian are only two rites of the catholic church.. who shares same belief, saints, sacraments and comes under the unique hierarchy of Pope.. They dont have any discrimination. Threee rites are there in kerala.. the other one is syro malankara.. total of 23 rites in catholic church.. but they are one unique church blessed by God, lead by Pope..

The above statements made in terms of Christian community is absurd. It clearly indicates whoever composed this message knows nothing about Christianity. There is no church where people are not allowed to enter, even non christian's are welcomed to church. I would request the composer of this message not to make such comments without knowing the truth. It would mislead the common people.

No church in kerala is closed to anybody, including non-christians ! But regular church going is often confined to ones own denomination where possible ! I am from Kerala.
