Human

(no subject)

Here is a cartoon by Jack Chick about Christianity versus Buddhism.

The Tycoon

Of course it is biased towards Christianity, showing things subtlety twisted around. The cartoon displays Buddhists as rude and arrogant (and somewhat looking like secret service agents), which are so materialistic that they have contests on who can donate the most money to build fancy temples.

These completely go against the Buddhist principles of kindness, tolerance, and universal compassion.

Now why am I posting this in a political cartoon journal if it's religious. Politics and religion are very closely intertwined, and they will always be so, until the religious followers of the world become universally tolerant and compassionate.

I wrote a letter to Chick.com a few months ago expressing my feelings about this comic, but I never received a reply.
