I have been a half hearted supporter of this guy while he trekked all over the world trying to muster public opinion in support of the Chinese Communists restoring the sovereignty of Tibet to Tibetans. Half hearted because I have never understood his rejection of violence. If you don’t fight, you are defeated by those who will fight, and Tibet was thus defeated. His attempt to generate global sympathy and shame the Chinese into action has been a dismal failure. I could have told him long ago that Communists cannot be shamed. To be shamed one has to have some moral foundation.
Then, out of the blue I read today that the Dalai Lama too is a Communist, and is only critical of the Chinese for not doing it right. Well, that’s too bad because that’s the end of any support from me. Once half hearted, it has shrunk to zero. Now I just wish the damn fool would get the hell back to India or wherever it is he hangs out these days, and stop bothering the hell out of everyone. I’m done with him.
The Dalai Lama was once “very much” attracted to Marxism and even wanted to join the Chinese Communist Party, which he now feels is bereft of Communist ideology. “I was very much attracted to the internationalism of Marxism. I wanted to join the Chinese Communist party, (but) today the Chinese Communist Party is without Communist ideology,” he said in an interaction after delivering a lecture in memory of Buddhist scholar D D Kosambi.
The spiritual and temporal leader of Tibetan Buddhists, living in exile in India for decades, still does not find anything wrong about Marxism as an ideology. “As far as socio-economic theory is concerned, I am a Marxist,” he said terming the present day Communism in China as “Capitalist Communism”.

It’s a plot by ChiCom agents in the Indian MSM to undermine the Lama.
There was also some scandal about him receiving millions of dollars from some dodgy world leader… Cant remember the details…
I know the enemy of my enemy is my friend… But he believes he’s God on Earth, this nutty Buddhist is just another enemy of freedom…
Anyone who regards themselves as “God”, or anyone who follows a religion which promotes the idea that one eventually becomes “God”, or one is part of “God”, is self deluded and, IMO, has little to contribute by way of opinion or perspective.
Self deluded, self important, self-worshipping fools! That the Dalai Lama is a Marxist, therefore, comes as no surprise.
By way of contrast, no genuine Christian could ever embrace such an ideology as Marxism.
That’s what gets me so annoyed about David Clark running for the Labour Party, a former Minister should see through the nonsense that is redistribution of wealth for the poverty trap it is…

Many Christian churches openly advocate for the leftist social and political situation. Always amazes me that they attract such little criticism from other Christians.
Is the Dalai really sore that the capitalism in China doesn’t trickle the profit wealth to the citenzry. Isn’t that the idea of communism. That all obey and all profit. It’s never been realistic. Communism simply means all obey away from the blackboard. But I think he is right in saying China has ditched Marxism.
And my opinion is that many of these so-called ‘Christians’ are in name only:
I believe that the Marxist/Leftist position is completely at odds with BIBLICAL Christianity. And just because, as highlighted in the scripture above, someone “claims” to be a Christian doesn’t necessarily make it so. And remember, this quote is Christ Himself speaking to these pretenders.
PS Red, I’m more than happy to challenge these pretenders to the Christian faith. I’m sure you’ve noticed my odd clashes with others who work outside of God’s word and/or biblical principles.
I think the distortion of the verse,
it is harder for a Camel to pass through the eye of a needle, than a rich man to pass into heaven
Firstly you need to realise the context in which the parable is written, Jesus to talking to rich man who has no trouble putting Him first, he tells him to give 50% of his money away to the poor, he then talks to a rich man who has trouble putting Jesus first and tells him to give all his money to the poor…
So the second point is that, from this, it’s quite obvious that Jesus has no problem with people keeping their wealth as long as they are charitable and put Him first… He seeks all to follow Him rich and poor alike…
I mean does anything think this billionaire’s soul is in trouble:
I have long since regarded the Dalai Lama as a gibbering idiot. If you try to follow his logic on any topic including the Chinese it is like getting lost in a jungle of slogans.
