I dont get why Americans would feel the same negative feelings against Buddhism that we do against islam. While we do have religious differences of opinions with both, the former doesnt tend to crash planes into buildings or commit other acts of violence against us.
Have you ever spent much time with elite leftist “Buddhist” converts? Enough self-rightousness to make one consider jhiad.
In many cases, the converts understand little of the religion they are converting to; conversion is a political statement, not a religious one. This is true of American blacks who convert to Islam, as well. They think they are embracing a pacifist religion of their African ancestors. But, while Islam might be big in Africa, that is in Northern Africa, where the people are not black, but are Caucasian. Furthermore, Islam is not pacifistic.
True... but that's true of most leftist elitists no matter their purported religion happens to be.
