Theft of Hindu symbols and practices

Post by Shri Gopal R. Krishna in Yahoo groups
Dear All,
Hindu symbols, practices and terminology is being stolen and used by christians as part of their evangelical work. Most of you may be aware of it and some of you must be witness to it.
Should that theft contiue? How is safeguarding our personal property different from safeguarding our cultural identity? What should be done? Should any thing be done at all? Is this a fight against the church? Or is it a dialouge to prevent theft? How would you all respond to this theft?
Traditionally it is said that brahmins shy away from confrontation.

But through out history it is brahmins who have provided leadership and initiative in India.
How would brahmins of this community respond to this theft? would you be comfortable in providing back up support if someone takes the initiative?
