Re: “Buddhists great example, great coverage” (Feb. 5, 2014) I am not sure I agree with all Ken Bateman said in complementing your coverage of the Buddhists who have been so successful in America since they arrived, and have built temples and Buddha sculptures in different areas of Texas.
Let me explain. I do not feel the approval of any Eastern mysticism should be accepted by Americans as advantageous to our free country. Accept the people, yes, but not their religion.
Neither article seemed to make a distinction between admiring their lifestyle and accepting their creeds and religion. The flavor of both articles was that one should accept both.
Already many cults have infiltrated our society, our government and even our public schools as science, while Christianity, as a religion, must be kept separate.
Buddhism is classified as a cult. I don’t feel I need to say more.
