Homosexuality & the Dalai Lama
Hi all ..
Pope Benedict has realeased a very controversial document relating to Homosexuality in the Priesthood. Living in Ireland this has gotten alot of serious news coverage on Main Stream Radio and T.V. programmes.
While listening last Sunday to a local P.P. who was defending the Pope's document on Homosexuality in the Priesthood, this parish priest said something along the lines of, "Most religions have a issues around the idea of homosexuality, even the Dalai Lama, has issues with homosexuality" (not a direct quote)
Obviously, because this was on a radio show, the topic moved on quite quickly and nobody challanged or queried what the priest had said about the Dalai Lama.
What are buddhism view on homosexuality? What if any are the teachings of the Dalai Lama on homosexuality, does anyone know please?
