Dalai Lama a Marxist...



"Russia will spread her errors." - Our Lady of Fatima
.
His Holiness, the Dalai Lama announced it right here in river city, Minneapolis, Minnesota that is:  “as far as socio-political beliefs are concerned, I consider myself a Marxist.”
.
"Well slap my butt an call me Gladys."  One student responded, going on to speculate.  "Why I'll bet every religion has been infiltrated with Marxists - maybe even the Jesuits and the USCCB."
.
Asked about Richard Gere and the the role gerbils played in the actor's conversion to Buddhism, His Holiness replied:  “He has a very cute personality."
.
What?  Here's a Tibetan riddle:  "Which quote is taken out of context and which quote is made up, so WDTDLRS?"
.
All kidding aside, I think many religious leaders and other 'elites' share the DL's views... Marxism is alive and well... although if they are truly peace-loving and compassionate, they usually add the following distinction, 'But not Leninism'
.
Seriously, this is what Dalai Lama really said:
.
Midway through the conversation, His Holiness, much to their surprise, told them “as far as socio-political beliefs are concerned, I consider myself a Marxist.” “But not a Leninist,” he clarified.

.
During the question and answer session, a student said that the Marxists these days criticize consumerism because they do not understand the difference between “consumption” and “consumerism.” He also asked about the contradiction inherent in the Dalai Lama’s economic philosophy and Marx’s critique of religion. The Tibetan leader answered that the Marx was not against religion or religious philosophy per se but against religious institutions that were allied, during Marx’s time, with the European ruling class. He also provided an interesting anecdote about his experience with Mao. He said that Mao had felt that the Dalai Lama’s mind was very logical, implying that Buddhist education and training help sharpens the mind. He said he met with Mao several times, and that once, during a meeting in Beijing, the Chinese leader called him in and announced: “Your mind is scientific!”—an assessment that was followed by the famous line, ”religion is poison.”
.
Now, Marxism, purported to be the guiding philosophy of the Chinese Community Party, has been replaced by American style capitalism in China. But the author of Das Kapital must be laughing in his grave for gaining new converts in the West, particularly in the academia, following the global financial crisis. - Source

My sixth grade teacher, Sr. Lillian, CSJ was probably right: "They will infiltrate the education system, the Church and religious orders, the courts and even the highest positions of government."
.
BTW - speaking of Marxists, I guess Hillary Clinton wants to head the World Bank now.

  1. Couple of good posts I discovered last week on the subject of how cultural Marxism got to America:

  3. If you do not submit to the cross of Jesus Christ, you will eventually wind up worshiping nothing.

    Those that submit to Satan have Christ as their enemy.

    Many people think because a leader mentions God this and God that with every other breath they take, that leader must certainly be good.

    If you do not call upon the Holy Name, the God you most likely are speaking of is Lucifer.

    We should challenge our leaders to say the Holy Name, or tell us exactly which God they speak of.

    'His holiness' the Dali? What holy?

    Let us challenge everyone to declare.

    And let us stop all this foolishness that America is a Christian Nation, and these snake oil salesmen are of God.

    They are peddling the Devils wares.
