How much anti-Buddhist propaganda do you see?

I see virtually nil.

Are they the religious flavour of the times?

How many atrocities have Buddhists committed? None that I ever heard of - no mass murders, no raping, or pillaging, or burning people in the name of God. Well, a couple of monks did burn people, but only themselves.

Catholics, on the other hand ...

If Buddhists had large oil reserves or something else worth stealing, I'm sure there would be some Buddhist bashing going on.

Catholics promote hate to certain groups of peaceful people, start wars and manipulate young children into joining their cult.

Buddhists promote peace, harmony and when was the last time you ever saw a violent buddhist?

Re: Why is it ok to bash Catholics and not Buddhists?
Buddhism is about self-empowering the spirit through discipline. The monotheistic faiths are about surrendering your spiritual power to a 'Creator' thought construct, allowing wiggle room for the ego to take root and grow. I have nothing against the latter, but it's not difficult to look back in history and determine which of the two got us 'here.'

Re: Why is it ok to bash Catholics and not Buddhists?
Buddhism is NOT a religion; rather, it is a system of spiritual and social practices to lead followers to true peace/enlightenment. There is not necessarily a God or other deity in Buddhism; a higher power is more likely.

Therefore, there is no comparison between Buddhidsm and
Catholicism.

It has all the hallmarks of a religion, no matter how you define 'religion'.

All religions promote peace, none can guarantee the total peacefulness of all members.

I'll hazard a conspiracy theory as to why they escape criticism - its to do with the principle of detachment.

When Buddhism starts to be offensive like Islam, Catholicism or Fundamentalist Christianity, you can be sure that we will be bashing them too.

Because Buddhists don't whine about it when someone does. They brush it off. So there's no point to bash Buddhists.

Re: Why is it ok to bash Catholics and not Buddhists?
Far more quietly, and far more effectively, Buddhism is taking over my culture, than the much more hyped up Islamic takeover.

I hear tenets of Buddhism drip from the lips of my friends and acquiantances as if they were commonly accepted truths.

Meditation is held up to be the spiritual practice par excellence..
why, when Christian prayer is my cultural heritage?

Getting bashed and vilified CONSTANTLY is very revealing, and something to be glad about. It is proof that they are right. Satan can't be bothered with the reincarnationists and the relativists. He has them already in his pocket. He goes after the real threat to him. The Catholic Church.

Anti-Catholic info & facts is not propaganda since it is .. fact. You just need to differentiate between the Catholic faith or Church and the Vatican's political empire and many war crimes of non-Catholics.

Because Buddhists LITERALLY HAVE NEVER HURT ANYTHING or IMPOSED THEIR IDEAS ON ANYONE in about 3,000 years.

You tell me the parallel?
