    As a Christian I am truly sorry for the any of the hardships that Sikhs were shown. There was a case here in Northern California where a Sikh man was harrased because he wore a turban. A true Chirstian should have spoken up and sent support to the man and his family but I never did. It's true at the time I had no idea what a Sikh was but I should have done something no matter what his religious beliefs are. Now that I have done some research on Sikhism I see that it is a proud and benevolant religion that has many of the same characteristics of Christianity. Infact it seems you act more Christian than most of the Christians I see and know LOL.

    God Bless you all.

    You lose some you gain some... try to spread some of this love around... maybe a new SIKH family will move into your area and you can make amends...

    Sometimes God does give us a second chance... cheers !!

    I just believe racism is a form of difficulty.

    When a majoty expresses it's difficulty on a minority.
     
Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
