Response to “In God’s Image”

Comments on “In God’s Image” by Eric Genilo (Forum essay, Dec 2011):

I perfectly agree with Eric Genilo’s observations. A number of similar things can be observed in the Indian society and the Indian Church. Often, those in authority directly or indirectly encourage such kind of ‘devotion’ which practically has to be considered as ‘idolatry’. At the same time, an equal concern for the suffering and the poor is not seen. Shouldn’t we spend less for this type of ‘idolatry’ and spend more for alleviating the suffering of the poor and the needy?
