Instead of a peaceful and tolerant culture we discovered a warlike and aggressive one; instead of a positive attitude towards women and sexual equality we came to know a system which took the oppression and exploitation of women to new refined heights. The repression of dissidents, despotism, intolerance, a boundless obsession with power, the use of demonization and fear as political instruments, contempt for everything human – we were forced to recognize everything we had never expected in the texts, rituals and history of this religion.
At times the recognition of the shady side of Tibetan Buddhism was accompanied by a sense of personal crisis for us – since it meant taking leave of a highly valued person, a spiritual role-model and a personal friend.

Try to Name one that's not Buddhist with a sex slave market like Thailand.
It doesn't matter what they saythe Buddah said - its what they DO.
No Buddha says to just accept it. Its karma - so selling your 10 year old girl for $100 is ethical to a Buddhist.
Is it a luxury now for a 10 year old to not be raped by old men?
The innocent victims of it. And the fact there is an International Buddhist Conspiracy. The evil Buddhists make the Illuminati look like altar boys. The real NWO will come from TIBET.
So a 9/11 International Buddhist conspiracy denier? Do you believe the holocaust was a hoax too? Are you involved in Buddhism perhaps? This is a conspiracy site and i would expect the more educated members would be aware of the Aryan race's ruse to hide in Tibet for 100s of years and mount a world domination effort. They are creating conflicts and letting us weaken each other while they pretend to be the peaceful ones...
Christians vs. Muslims
Muslims vs. Jews
Christians vs. Jews.
Christians vs. Hindus
Muslims vs. Hindus
Ah Ha ! Notice someone missing from the picture? Once we have weakened each other then boom the Buddhists take over!

Buddhism is evil
The Buddhist view of women is one which puts them on a lower level than men. Women are looked down upon especially by monks who view them as merely dangerous objects that provoke sexual interest in men. Buddha advises his disciples not to look at them or talk to them. They are nasty creatures. Buddhism acknowledges the view that women's natural role is for having children, but it excludes the notion of women being sexually desired or attractive.
Himmler's fascination with the occult led him to send envoys to Dalai's court in the 30s. The Nazi swastika was adopted from Tibetan Buddhism. Heinrich Harrer, the tutor of the current Dalai Lama of 7 years in Tibet fame, was a SS-Nazi. The SS was modeled on the Tibetan horsemen and the ruling Nazi elites were based on the cruel Tibetan aristocrats, who fled with the Dalai Lama to India after the 1959 rebellion. Many of these exiles and their descendants live in Dharamsala and the West and they form the back bone of the Free Tibet movement.

Wow you need to go back and read the post again. . The talk of "peace and harmony" is a lie. Its a ruse to indoctrinate the weak members of society. Don't fall for it. Deny Ignorance. There's no peace in Buddhism. Look at Buddhist countries theres no peace and harmony but massive sex slavery and rampant accepted pedophilia.
