Ok, so yes I do know what to expect from Ann Coulter. And it is not reasonable conversation or even debate. Personally I hope that one day she simply dissappears in a magical *puff* of designer diet pills, cocaine and stripper dust (stripper dust is the glitter that always hangs on to Kyle from The Reformed Buddhist when he leaves a Canadian Strip Club).
Anywho…this was a silly quote.
Is Buddhism about forgiveness? Because, if so, Buddhists had better start demanding corrections from every book, magazine article and blog posting ever written on the subject, which claims Buddhists don’t believe in God, but try to become their own gods.
Not much response needed except to say that forgiveness need not come from a god or any deity but from your own realization of how your actions affected yourself and others. Without that realization any amount of magic forgiveness is meaningless (to me at least, I don’t think less of anyone that does believe in divine forgiveness). If Divine Forgiveness helps you reach that realization as a Christian or as a Buddhist then great. More power to you. I faced my own, very painful, round with this and I decided that Divine Forgiveness did me absolutely spit for my realization.
Ann please refer to Karma, thank you.
So that is my response to Ann but wait…who is that knocking on my door…wait, let me see…OH, its Henry Rollins! Hi, Henry good to see you….oh, stoooop…yes, I have been working out and I would love to give you some pointers but first you wanted to say something to Ann?
Thank You, Henry, that was delightful.
