    Buddhist. A nice philosophy with none of the dangerous god business.

    I went with Buddhist, but being a rasta would be quite awesome as well.

    You are correct, of course. My intention was not to say that the Sinhalese government was acting in the name of Buddhism, but merely as an example of violence carried out by Buddhists.

    Apologies for the misunderstanding, much metta to you

    cheers

    Buddhism. Inner peace.
    Like lovely feudal Tibet, where 60% of the population were trapped in serfdom.

    That comment shows your lack of knowledge of Rastafari.

    Christian, sure I'd choke on the BS and the self righteousness and the hypocrisy but the laws wouldn't be horrible (try and Islamic state for a day!)

    How come Sikhism isn't on that list? The 4th most common religion in the country!

    I choose Sikhism - promotes equality, being peaceful but not taking **** from anyone.

    Buddhists ave there fair share of violence and ********.
    There's a difference between adherents of Buddhism engaging in violence on the one hand, and Buddhism, the religion, harbouring violence.

    (Original post by steed999)
    Buddhism is also a religion about "me, me, me" and dosnt take into consideration society and community!
    Far worse atrocities have been committed under the guise of the collective good than individualism.
