Never had a pope tell me that an authentic reading of the Buddhist scriptures are opposed to all forms of violence, either. Funny that.
Maybe the Pope is Racist!
With the exception of Benedict and possibly John Paul I, there has not been an ACTUAL CATHOLIC in the position of pope for many decades. I doubt that any Catholic has served as pope during BillyHW’s lifetime.
Is it because Buddhist leaders aren’t continually telling their co-religionists that must wage ‘defensive’ war against the non-Buddhists who resist the religion’s instructions to convert, submit or die?
Nor is anyone trying to convince us that we need to be more tolerant of Christians, Jews, Hindus or even witches. That alone says all one needs to know.
