that would be like a couple catholic nuns setting themselves on fire because the united states govt told everyone it was going to choose the next pope.
why would you take such ridiculous crap seriously enough to want to kill yourself over it?
let china have their counterfeit lama. if any fools choose to follow him or listen to his advice that is their fate, obviously they werent taking the whole "religion" thing very seriously.
honestly, this is just retarded on all fronts.
you dont fight this level of stupid by taking it seriously, you fight it by treating it exactly as it is... a complete joke. you laugh at it and ignore it, until the govt realizes they are wasting their time and give up.
but that seems to be a common character trait in asian cultures.. they take EVERYTHING WAY TOO SERIOUSLY.edit on 26-9-2011 by BohemianBrim because: (no reason given)
