  • Re: Why do Buddhists get defensive

    @karasti said:
    I had a discussion on my FB wall yesterday about comfort versus discovery. I asked some questions about Lent of my Christian friends. About why it wouldn't be more valuable to their self-discovery and their religious practice to actually give up something they are attached to instead of replacing meat with fish because of a tradition that started hundreds of years ago and the foundation doesn't really apply in our world anymore. Boy, did people get upset, lol. They don't want to. I was told several times that questioning what God or the Church tells one to do is a path to hell.

    This isn't the same thread about spiritual books but this is my issue with these religions and why I'm not interested in reading about them. I got a bit of a lashing for having ill feelings toward Catholicism and Christianity (I still think you're awesome @dhammachick and @federica <3) but this is why. These are the types of answers I get from people and I don't like it......a path to hell? where is the door!

    look at me!....A defensive Buddhist :p
