The lies and myth about Buddhist religious tolerance

It's now time for the West to expose their politically treasured myth. There is no such thing as peace or religious tolerance in Buddhism. History is witness to that.

Hulagu Khan, the grandson of Chengis Khan, known as the world's most ruthless invader and murderer, was a Buddhist along with his big band of murderers, looters and arsonists that terrorized Central Asia, South Asia and the Northern Middle-East regions throughout the 13th century.

For thousands of years, the Buddhist majority in Japan have been bitterly persecuting minorities of other faiths living in Japan, mainly the Christian minority. The type of atrocities inflicted by Japanese Buddhists on the small Chrisitan population of Japan in the past is hair-raising to read. Uptil today, the Christian minority of Japan face brazen discrimination in all spheres of life and usually need to be secretive about their faith. But the suffering of the ancestors of this minority community is most appaling. Before the 20th century, the Christian minority were isolated and literally had to hide in remote areas of Japan from the Buddhist majority. Those Japanese discovered following the Christian faith were taken away by the authorities and put to death by being thrown in boiling water. It was very similar to the bitter persecution of non-Christians inflicted by the Catholic Church that swept across Europe for 600 years known as the Inquisition, when non-Christians were put to death by being burnt at the stake, quartered or thrown into boiling oil.

Since the initial transmission of Roman Catholicism in Japan in the 16th century, Christianity has generally been regarded as an intrusive force by the Buddhist majority of Japan. They commonly refer to Christianity as 'junkyo' or evil religion.

The history of conversions into Christianity in Japan abounds with stories of individuals being cut off from their families or isolated from communities. Refusal of the Japanese Christian converts to participate in Buddhist ancestral rites or community festivals frequently results in such isolations enforced by the majority.

The more modern view of Buddhists in Japan has shaped the perception that Christianity is a deviant religion connected to foreign powers with designs on Japan.

It is only since the last few decades that Japanese attitudes toward Christianity have become less violent, particularly among Japanese born and educated in the West in the postwar period, though the Buddhist majority of Japan still nurtures a lot of hatred toward non-Buddhists. Needless to say, the truth about Buddhism is a complete contradiction of the current media propaganda spreading the notion of Buddhism being a 'tolerant' faith.

The most appropriate example of Buddhist hypocrisy is the arch spy and liar, the Dalai Lama and his gang of Tibetan insurgents. Read more at Dalai Lama's Hypocrisy Exposed.
