    This has to be one of the strangest stories I have ever read.
    What was this guy thinking?
    https://abc7chicago.com/american-killed-in-india-by-tribesmen-known-for-shooting-outsiders/4734926/

    Outsiders are forbidden to make contact w/ these primitive people.
    He goes there anyway, is almost killed.
    Then goes back the next day.
    SMH. just wow.

    Maybe he considered himself to be "assumptious"?

    Thanks for the update. Didn't know he returned the next day. I suspect that he wasn't the first missionary they encountered and were familiar with the symbols on the bible.

    If only a man of such zeal and passion spent his life on something real. Instead, he's forever dead trying to save these humans he scarcely understands from an imaginary fate.

    Perhaps, but they pretty much kill or try to kill anyone who lands on their island. Apparently they have been that way literally since forever. I read somewhere that the oldest account of contact with them is 1000 or more years ago, and they were just as unfriendly. This has apparently been exacerbated by contacts with Indian & Burmese fishermen & smugglers.

    A few years back a couple of guys from Myanmar were part of a group illegally fishing near the island. They got drunk and their boat drifted to shore. As their friends watched the locals hacked them to death on the beach & buried the bodies. I'm pretty sure that attempts to retrieve the bodies were called off when a helicopter was attacked with arrows.

    Looks like God didn't love his missionary quite enough. Tough lesson to learn.

    This is a symptom of globalism. Local cultures cannot be allowed to exist, they must be assimilated into the international order.

    There are not many true evangelical Christians remaing who want to share the gift of eternal life to others

    And now there is one less

    He was preaching the salvation of democratic socialism? A proven failure.

    At least it's traditional, natives used to kill the missionary's.

    I don't see these people as evil they are just doing what they always have done, they were shooting arrows at him and yet he still continued on. Whilst that takes some bravery and commendable it also takes some kind of stupid.

    I saw in some LW media how we should force ourselves on these people to "Civilise" them for their own greater good.

    I think we should air drop them more arrows for ammo.

    Dude could not take a hint! I make and carry bullwhips on my bike, so pit bulls get the message. I have saved my ass, 3 times.
    Here in Florida in this Podunk town, every Bubba owns one and they run free.

    Its almost hard to imagine leftists forcing themselves on others.

    But not really.

    Not at all.

    One of the best memes ever was something like this photo...with the islanders holding up a "Bill Clinton is a rapist" sign.
