      Perhaps it was because it was like looking in a mirror when he saw Christians?

      I don't like it when Christians argue without really listening to what the other person is saying.

      The quote from Gandhi is
      I like your Christ. I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ. It continues with these words The materialism of affluent Christian countries appears to contradict the claims of Jesus Christ that says it's not possible to worship both Mammon and God at the same time.

      Gandhi was as fault prone as many people are. That is not really the point. His comment was about Jesus being admirable but his followers being not so admirable.

      He is the patron of impossible causes because the scriptural Letter of St. Jude, which he authored, urges Christians to persevere in difficult times.

      If you want to rile people up then go to a Christian site and give God ALL the glory for your salvation.
