While Islam is inherently evil and violent, Buddhism is not inherent evil.
You are a case of the blind following the blind, i.e. the above is based on blatant ignorance and no attempt to understand the essence and ethos of religions, i.e. Buddhism and Islam.Dark Matter wrote: ↑March 15th, 2018, 7:12 pmNot to burst your bubble, but ...
Why Are We Surprised When Buddhists Are Violent?
Sri Lanka violence mirrors Myanmar unrest: As Buddhist monks stoke communal fire, religion's 'tolerant' image under threat
More can be said, but with your minds made up, what’s the point?
Note the facts,
- 1. All humans has the potential to commit terrible evils and violence.
2. A % [20% conservatively] of All humans are born with an active tendency to commit evil - the evil prone.
3. These percentile of evil prone are triggered by evil laden stimuli from various sources.
- a. Islam as in the Quran has TONS of evil laden elements in its 6,236 verses.
b. The natural evil prone Muslims [pool of 20%] are triggered by these evil elements within Islam to be inspired to commit terrible evils and violence in the name of the religion.
Such evil reaction using violence is wrong and need to be addressed but it has nothing to so with the religion itself.
There are no evil laden elements in the Sutras of Theravada Buddhism for the Buddhists in Myanmar and Sri Langka to justify their violent acts. Therefore we cannot blame Buddhism per se for the violence by Buddhists like we can blame Islam for the violence by SOME evil prone Muslims.
There are violence by Buddhist monks but we don't hear them referring to any verses in the relevant main Sutras, shouting Buddha-u-Akbar or invoking the name of The Buddha.
Admittedly, there are a few lines of verses with evil elements in the Mahayana Sutras which are like needle in the haystacks. But note these verses are not evil laden [loaded to shoot]. Besides, note, Buddhists in Myanmar and Sri Lanka are Theravadians , not Mahayanists.
So it is very stupid [when they don't get the facts right] for anyone to blame Buddhism per-se for violence committed by Buddhist monks in Myanmar and Sri Lanka.
