Nikki Haley either finds non-Christian religious sites ‘holy’, or feels the need to pretend she does, while denigrating the cultural heritage of the country in which she was born, rather than treasuring it

16 Jul

I know it’s eleven days after this repost, but I want to expand on it.

Something I noticed in the quote below the 2014 YouTube clip linked in the previous post:

Haley was born as Nimrata Nikki Randhawain in Bamberg, South Carolina, US, on January 20, 1972, to an Indian Sikh family. Her parents, Ajit Singh Randhawa and Raj Kaur Randhawa, are immigrants from Amritsar District.

[…]

Haley was born and raised as a Sikh. On September 6, 1996, she married Michael Haley in both a Methodist church ceremony and in a Sikh gurdwara. Haley identifies herself today as a Christian. She said, “We converted to Christianity, but it was not political. It was out of the fact that when you change, when you grew up, you need more, and when you don’t understand the language.”

However, she said she was very proud of her upbringing, and very proud that she grew up in that environment. She said, “Christianity spoke to me that I could understand it. But, when you come to a holy place, you feel it.”

So, though ostensibly a Christian and not a Sikh now, she nevertheless feels overcome with a sense of the ‘holiness’ of the Sikh Golden Temple in Amritsar, India.

This shows she either has a poor understanding of her Christian faith (a Christian should truly feel no sense of divinity or holiness in a heathen temple); or her Christian faith isn’t genuine and she’s still a Sikh in her heart; or maybe she just doesn’t give a shit about religion at all but feels compelled to act as though she does when visiting her ancestral homeland, with the cameras rolling.

Not sure which of those three alternatives is the worst; they’re all bad, really.

After this visit, came the Dylann Roof massacre, and Haley felt the need to jump on the bandwagon to remove the Confederate flag at the South Carolina State Legislature grounds.

So, in the video she has real or fake emotion on full display, either embracing or paying lip service to the heathen religion which she supposedly left, but she can’t understand or relate to the heritage of the people where she was actually born and raised, South Carolina.

And so like all the other converged neo-cucks, she embraced taking down the Confederate flag.

And now, she’s among the warmongering chickenhawks trying to pressure Trump into neo-con warmongering.

Not very Christian, that, though it is in line with neo-cuck evanjellyfish Churchianity, I suppose.

It’s also in line with her Punjabi, Sikh heritage, which surely means more to her.

    “….and when you don’t understand the language.”

    She seems to be saying that since she speaks English and not Punjabi that made it too confusing to follow the Sikh religion. Therefore, in America her language made Christianity the easy choice. Makes it sound like her Christian faith is cultural and not internal.

    So, though ostensibly a Christian and not a Sikh now…

    NO, no, no … read again:

    On September 6, 1996, she married Michael Haley in both a Methodist church ceremony and in a Sikh gurdwara…

    She converted to Methodism. That is to say, she became part of a long-converged denomination that, like the Anglican sect, now not only does NOT adhere to the tenets of the Christian Scripture, but subverts and perverts them at every turn, mocking and spitting upon the Founder of the Faith.

    Nikki Haley is no more of a Christian than is the King of Saudi Arabia or the Dahli Lama of Tibet.
