What’s truly interesting is all the hatred stems from the same book, Old and New Testament teachings and prophets, as “adjusted in theme” by latter day “adherents”, spelled N-U-T-S… Mohammed was actually very egalitarian, with men and women totally equal, the followers went nuts. Jesus said he came not to bring peace to the world, but a sword, a sad statement after the message of the Sermon on the Mount, that most Christian sects have actually taken to heart above “love thy neighbor”.
Buddhism teaches respect for all people, and other religions, even if agreeing to disagree, especially when those other religions start preaching violence, against anyone. I certainly respect the teachings and advice of the Dalai Lama over any of the “screamers” on TV, or in the streets, going against the teachings of both Jesus and Mohammed; just a thought.
The outrageous violence and hatred, and well, the greed of the rabbis, in the laws of Moses in Deuteronomy and elsewhere in that “old book of hate”, aren’t exactly a model for peace within the family, let alone the greater population at large.. Yep, they “tick you off” in any way, and “God” commands you to stone ’em to death. NOT exactly a gentle hand (especially toward gentiles).
