The ‘evolving’ views of the Dalai Lama

There has been a minor stir created in the last couple of days by remarks made by the Dalai Lama, who is considered a spiritual leader by Buddhists as well as by Western ‘New Age’ types and ultra-liberal Christians who believe all faiths are valid — except for those of old-fashioned Christians.

It seems the Dalai Lama shocked a few sensitive liberal souls by saying that Europe had taken in too many immigrants, and also by saying that Germany ‘cannot become an Arab country.’ The fact that such a statement would shock anybody just shows how strange and illogical the Western world has become in the 21st century.  It’s just self-evident.

The Dalai Lama, of course, is speaking from his experience of seeing his native country, Tibet, conquered by China, and in the process of being re-populated by Han Chinese colonists. However, the Pope obviously sees Italy and all of Europe being colonized by Third Worlders and he doesn’t see this the same way as his Buddhist counterpart does. Instead, he advises that Europeans breed with the ‘refugees’ and produce a new population. Shocking.

The Dalai Lama, though he spouts the usual passivist/pacifistic/quietistic teachings that characterize his religion, occasionally says something that seems surprising. Way back in 2001, he spoke out against a new rail link, by means of which the Chinese were colonizing Tibet. The DL said that this rail link was being used to send ‘beggars, prostitutes, the unemployed, and handicapped people’, also ‘people with AIDS.’

In another article, here, he charged that this was part of a plan to ‘forcibly change Tibet’s demography.

“The Chinese are setting up the railway tracks, but it is not for economic development. They have plans to transfer 20 million Chinese population into Tibet. The purpose of the railways is basically to facilitate the transfer of population.”

This is the kind of thing that is being done in Europe, this transferring of millions of people, and the purpose is to forcibly change Europe’s demography, as well as that of all Western, White countries. Surely the Dalai Lama recognizes this. His talk of showing ‘compassion’ to the refugees is predictable, but what about Europeans showing compassion to their own folk and above all, to their progeny, who will have the misfortune of living as minorities in a Third-Worldized slum?

Still, credit to the Dalai Lama for saying as much as he has. None of our Western spiritual “leaders” will say even that much.

Will the Dalai Lama’s Western devotees turn against him for saying something politically incorrect? They usually brook no such comments from fellow Whites but they will give a pass to someone from a non-Western, nonwhite, non-Christian background. And the Dalai Lama has a history of saying politically incorrect things about sacred cows such as homosexuality. Back in 1997, when gay activists were not so aggressive and powerful as they are today, he said some impolitic things.

I won’t excerpt the article as it gets rather explicit, but let’s say that he said certain ‘irregular’ sexual practices, between men and women as well as between same-sex partners, were ‘sexual misconduct’ and not appropriate for Buddhists.

I don’t think most Christian teachers or pastors would dare to express such old-fashioned ideas today, given the way in which the world has annexed the Church, with the Church’s acquiescence.

But the Dalai Lama has since had a change of mind or heart, and now says he is fine with ‘gay marriage’ and that homosexuality is harmless. His views have ‘evolved’, say his followers. What was unacceptable yesterday, or at least in 1997, is harmless today.

The celibate Dalai Lama has thrown his considerable moral weight behind gay marriage, condemning homophobia and saying sex was fine as long as it was consensual.”

Situational ethics and moral relativism are not just Western problems, it seems. Consenting adults, and all that. The slippery slope is everywhere.
