Dalai Lama Defends Islam As Peaceful Religion
The Dalai Lama said Sunday that "it's totally wrong, unfair" to call Islam a violent religion. The Tibetan spiritual leader, appearing at Lehigh University in Pennsylvania, offered a defense of Islam in response to a question about the rise of violent religious fundamentalism. He added that he has made a point of reaching out to Muslims since the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

I think the Dalai Lama should shut his stupid mouth! What the hell does he know about religious suffering? Sits there in his robe ... reaching enlightenment ... Hey! Come out of your ivory tower man and live a little!

Torgleson & MartiniLush, you two are absolutely correct. It's amazing how one person can ruin or give a negative view point or action, and everyone focuses only on that.

Agreed, Torgleson - it isn't that ANY religion in itself is violent, it is that people who profess to be following the religion will twist and turn it's principles to fit their own nutso interpretations!

He's right, of course. But the problem, like with most groups, is that one or two total nutbags ruin it for everyone.
