The Forum for the Protection of Religious Pluralism held a peaceful demonstration outside the United Nations headquarters during Pope address to United Nations last week on April 18.

A small group of people from around the US joined the demonstration to bring public awareness of religions that have been victimized by aggressive proselytization campaigns that are grounded in religious exclusivism, which is there is only one way to God and all other ways are wrong and even evil that needs to be destroyed.

The demonstration sought to highlight how the Catholic, Evangelical and Pentecostal Christian missionaries looking to increase their numbers at any cost are having tremendous success in recruiting new converts by closely linking social services with deceptive and exploitative proselytizing.
