A useful article, LFA, thank you.
See how these Buddhists love each other!

Honestly I think most of the "problems" are because of the media. Media is biased, always. Whether it be run by liberals or conservatives, it is going to have the bias of that media group. This whole thing has really been weighing on my mind. The NKT center is one of the few that are closer to me, and their core teachings are closer to what I am enjoying about the path. Obviously their stance (which MAY be media slanted) on HHDL is concerning to me as HHDL is a very influential person in my life. But didn't the Buddha say to question everything? To test it for ourselves?
I, for one, am glad that LFA posted his experience.
I like hearing of good experiences.
Me too, LFA. I also think it's beautiful that you celebrated Dr. King's birthday by taking the precepts.
If you keep your ears and eyes open and continue to study and practice what the Buddha himself taught you'll be able to see through any false teachers you come across.
