They invade a community and proceed to tell the natives that their spiritual traditions are false, satanic, and that to go on following those venerable ways will land the natives in Hell. Not a nice thing to be doing.
Other people invade a community and kill the natives - selectively or indiscriminately, raping and mutilation optional.
Seriously, this topic is going to achieve absolutely nothing for anyone involved in the situation and is almost certain to lead to the (further) demonising of people who may be misguided but are sincerely trying to do the best they can for folk they think need help.
Can we stop before it degenerates further?
