"Empathy" goes only so far. Someone has to stand up for what is right. I'll be that person.

Every religion has it's fanatics, alan. I think there are also many moderate Muslims who cringe at the bellicose rantings of the extremist elements of their own faith, too. But yes it's sad to see persons in monk's robes talking like this. All we can do is to assure others, if asked, that this does not represent the Path we are undertaking.

Then the Blessed One, picking up a tiny bit of dust with the tip of his fingernail, said to the monk, "There isn't even this much form...feeling...
perception...fabrications...consciousness that is constant, lasting, eternal, not subject to change, that will stay just as it is as long as eternity."
