Bill Clinton, of all people, made an astute observation about religion. He said "It's interesting to me that we always proclaim – especially certain numbers of us – that we're the most religious big country in the world," said Clinton. "It may be true, but we also seem to be the most reluctant to get to heaven." He went on to discuss the amount of money spent on life saving efforts for people in the last hours of life.

Other folks may not have that much control over the last minutes of life, because they are Christians in a country where that is not popular. That country is India, which claims to be the world’s largest democracy, but where militant Hindus are conducting wide spread persecution of Christian. Hindus have threatened more than 60 Christian converts in northern India with burning to death unless they return to Hinduism by Sunday. The Hindus have already severely beaten the group’s pastor, Feroz Masih. On November 4, they attacked him and accused him of "forcibly converting" the group of believers from Hinduism.
