Dear, what Wikipedia says that there are 41,000 denominations in Christianity. They mention the fact only. Denominations does not mean 41,000 caste divisions in Christianity. it means religious bodies under a common name, structure, and doctrine within Christianity. You can say it... like different political parties. Because Christianity is very largest religion in the world and it does not require to any further conversion. And who said you Christians ridicule the caste division of Hindus.? Do you want to fuel communal disharmony between Hindus and Christianity in the forum?

No object or activity in the universe is intrinsically good or bad. It gets qualified as good or bad based on its usage. Caste system when it is used as a division of labor is good and enables a society to grow and become productive. When caste system is used as a tool to divide, rule and exploit the weaker section it is bad and has a negative impact. The Christian missionaries had the option of a) projecting the caste system as a division of labor and unite the Indian society to stay united and strong or b) to project it as a system of divide and rule being followed in the society to exploit the service class by the intellectual and ruling class.

Caste word itself is of christian origin and imputed on india by the british. the word has no significance or existence in india and never was there a caste system, which purely creation of british at the behest of missionaries for divide, convert, and rule policies. poor were easy target as they would readily convert even if u give 2 crumbs to someone to eat. the british classified indian society on the discriminatory class system which they themselves used in their country. thus the coloured the harmonious picture into communal colors for ease of colonial rule. congress party was also formed by the british and stooges were recruited to ensure western interference in india after the division of the country. an enemy was created on both sides and that too of stupid and beastly people following a savage cult to suppress the glorious civilization of india. minority appeasement was started so that the majority never lives a comfortable or dignified life.
