“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

Ashoka was so smart. :bow:

Too bad we don't have many leaders like him anymore.

So we have a thread about Christianity, things turn ugly, the thread is closed. A new thread is then started to continue the same discussion in broader terms, things turn ugly, the thread is closed. So, here another thread is started to continue the same discussion in even broader terms.

My prediction: things will turn ugly and the thread will be closed.

Or is it third time lucky here? I doubt it. Over the last week I've seen Tibetan-Buddhism bashing, Christian bashing and religion bashing. Given that the discussions always seem to be circular I don't think we're actually doing any good with these.

So, in the spirit of my recent decision to stop causing trouble [to entertain myself], I've decided to stop posting in Dhammawheel for one week. Hopefully in a weeks time this general aversive attitude I'm seeing will have ran its course and be exhasted.

:anjali: see you next Sunday

Also, keep in mind that the point of this thread is the question of tolerance and intolerance towards religion, not the critique of religion.
