Juggernaut: Re-evaluating the Morality of Missionaries

How did a popular regional Hindu deity become synonymous with unstoppable forces and the death of Jesus Christ? The work of missionaries is often controversial, and through an analysis of the vitriol on the subject of the god Jagannath spread by evangelicals in the 19th century, we can observe the cultural hatred and destruction bred by missionaries, whilst also understanding why they feel the need to convert, and the good works they do around the world.
