McCain Rally Preacher Erroneously Calls Buddha a "god," Prays to Christian God to Save God's Rep By Causing McCain Victory



Just another day in samsara as usual, home of passion, aggression and -- ignorance.

How offensive is this guy's total ignorance about Buddhism in particular to this card-carrying Buddhist? Mm -- very. (But in a dharmic context.) Plus his um wacko attitude toward several other religions.

Who does he think he is?

Oh, right. He's just being proud and godly, not totally incorrect and repulsive and wicked arrogant. Yuh. Blessed are the meek, dude.

Another fake Christian in need of remedial Sunday School.

Sigh. One of so many.



Dharmic context:**

13.

Even if someone cuts your head off
For having done nothing wrong,
To take on that person's negativities
Through the power of compassion
Is the practice of a bodhisattva.




Hat-tip to Jesus' General

and to TPM.

no blood for hubris:

I'm pretty ignorant about buddhism as well, but isn't the whole notion of "Godly intervention" somewhat anti-thetical to buddhists?

Buddhism is a non-theistic religion. Something this preacher dude is apparently unaware of. But ignorance is bliss?

Buddha was a person, a human being, a dude, as it were.

Big effing diff between a dude and a god, at least in my neighborhood.

Whew, good. I did not want to have to follow the Lebowski Canon, I don't like White Russians that much!
