Buddhists attack Christians

So now even Buddhists can't claim the high, tolerant road anymore. What is the world coming to?

Those are radical buddhists, just as there are radical Christians and radical Muslims. This act does not represent the majority of the Buddhist community.

Thank you brewmama for posting this article. It is not generally known that Buddhists are persecuting Christians just as Muslims are. Voice of the Martyrs documents world-wide Christian persecution. Check them out! http://persecution.com/

__________________Maybe so, but where is all this radical Buddhism coming from? It is not historical, as violence in Islam is. It is showing up in several countries.

Where are the comparable radical Christians you are talking about?

Have you noticed that the only places left where true tolerance and freedom of religion are allowed are Christian based countries?

A sample of a hate group led by so called Christians.

The Christian Identity religion asserts that whites, not Jews, are the true Israelites favored by God in the Bible. In most of its forms, Identity theology depicts Jews as biologically descended from Satan, while non-whites are seen as soulless "mud people" created with the other Biblical "beasts of the field." Christian Identity has its roots in a 19th-century English fad called British Israelism, which asserted that European whites were descended from the ten "lost tribes" of Israel and were thus related to Jews, who were descended from the other two Hebrew tribes mentioned in the Bible. But British Israelism, which was initially friendly to Jews, was adopted and transformed in the 20th century into a rabidly anti-Semitic creed by a number of racist preachers in the United States.

For decades, identity has been one of the most important ideologies for the white supremacist movement. In its hardest line form, it asserts that Christ will not return to earth until the globe is swept clean of Jews and other "Satanic" fluences
Does this mean this applies to all Christians? Nope. Thus you can't apply that article to all Buddhists.

armed2010 there is no need for such saracsm. There are some cases of Christians being persecuted and killed. Your comments are not helpful and in fact are hurtful.

Where do you get your nasty attitude? I have never seen a post by you which was helpful to the discussion.

Agreed that Christians in the US are blessed. But if Canadian influence comes south it might not last too long. Christians are dying daily in China and Muslim countries. Check out the website - it won't hurt you and might give you a more generous perspective.

Is this group out bombing and killing people, or attacking other faiths? I have never heard of them.

I certainly never said that it applied to all Buddhists. But you can't deny that it's happening, and seems to be getting worse.
