Think Buddhists are peace-loving & kind? This may change your mind

I have done posts in the past about the false teachings of Buddhism and got responses that Buddhists only seek peace and are kind to others, even if the religion of others is different from theirs. But they pretend as if Buddhists never persecute others when in fact they do persecute people of other religions.

The Canadian arm of Voice of the Martyrs recently reported that villagers in Nepal, which has a strong population of Buddhists, recently made false accusations against a Christian pastor and his group of Christians claiming they had brought into their village a foreign religion that teaches beliefs that offended them. They then gathered a mob to evict all Christians from their village. False claims were also made that the Christians were converting people by coercion and bribes, a typical claim used by false witnesses against Christians.

To add insult to injury, it was also discovered recently that a six-year-old girl from one of these Christian families was sexually abused by a man who was part of the mob of Buddhists that led the charge for expelling the Christians. Workers for Voice of the Martyrs aided the persecuted Christians in finding a new place to settle and prayed with them, praying a special prayer for the little girl and her family in dealing with the sexual abuse.

Nepal has a history of Christian persecution and is in the process of forming a new constitution while grappling with whether or not to include anti-conversion laws. No anti-conversion laws are presently in place.

  1. I think it’s much much too naïve and narrow minded if we judge
    A teaching by the missacts of some of it’s believer
    For example :
    Christianity itself….. Caused a great deal of pain and suffering
    In their mission to expand their believes to the asian…
    For example : practiced by the collonialism of the brittish, dutch, portuguese, etc
    And then the christian will say… that was the soldiers and merchant, not the missionaries,
    In the crusade, christian fought a war to defend their believes
    So… Put your self in the nepal’s shoes.
    Maybe in their (the nepal’s -because I don’t like their act as well as you do)
    Stupid, narrow mind… They fight the same war christian fought in the crusade…
    A worthless fight to defend their faith…
    Because GOD, THE DIVINED ONE, need no protection, nor justification
    From anyone… IT,or HE , or whatever will stay SACRED and DIVINE…

      No what you’re claiming is the blah, blah, blah of revisionist history. Genuine Christianity teaches against murdering people and teaches unconditional love. What proof do you have that the Crusades were what you say they were? Please provide some historically reliable sources.

      The Bible allows for self defense but teaches “14 We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death. 15 Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.” 1 John 3.

      The Crusades were sparked after years of Muslims attacking and harassing Roman Catholics making a pilgrimage to Jerusalem as Islamic aggressors sought to expand throughout Europe. I cover the highlights of the facts behind the Crusades at my post “Ungodly crusaders.”

      So your argument that the Crusades represented Christianity is a fallacy and your argument has no merit.
