The Dalai Lama has voiced his support for gay marriage and condemned homophobia, saying that sex is fine as long as it is consensual.
Speaking during an interview with American talk show host Larry King, the Buddhist monk said that gay marriage was okay and a personal matter.
He said: "If two people, a couple, really feel that way, its more practical, more satisfaction, and both sides fully agree, then okay!

Whoope. How wonderful. Do indeed a sarc tag
Don’t be misled. Most Buddhists in their homelands find this behavior disgusting. This guy has just been influenced by his contact with the west. Sad.
Just another useful tool then.
Golly gee, Dolly!
Hard to have any sympathy for him. If he had Tibet an independent state, it would just be turned into his utopian nuthouse with bathhouses everywhere.
If I had my old clippings I would show it, but the Dali Lama has things he doesn’t approve of, such as American Evangelical Christianity which he has pointed out as the enemy of universal truth and harmony.
The Dali Lama is a religious leader for the left, as evidenced by his and Buddhism’s popularity among the left.
On whether same-sex marriage should be universally accepted, he said: "Thats up to the countrys law.
And the Dalai Lama added that people should still follow their own religions rules on spirituality.
People who have belief or who have special traditions, then you should follow according to your own tradition. Like Buddhism, there are different kinds of sexual misconduct, so you should follow properly.
Homosexuality is one of those kinds of sexual misconduct.
That’s odd, my teacher has said “it is not possible for a liberal to practice the Dharma.”
I’ve seen old articles and threads where he expresses his approval of Marxism.
It’s true and he means it. :)
Well, Old Buddha was a man and I'm sure that he meant well But I pray for his disciples lest they wind up in hell And I'm sure that old Mohammed thought he knew the way But it won't be Hare Krishna we stand before on The Judgment Day. No, it won't be old Buddha that's sitting on the throne And it won't be old Mohammed that's calling us Home And it won't be Hare Krishna that plays that trumpet tune And we're going to see The Son not Reverend Moon! Well, I don't hate anybody so please don't take me wrong But there really is a message to this simple song You see there's only one way Jesus if eternal life is your goal Meditation of the mind won't save your soul. No, it won't be old Buddha that's sitting on the throne And it won't be old Mohammed that's calling us Home And it won't be Hare Krishna that plays that trumpet tune And we're going to see The Son, not Reverend Moon! Well, you can call yourself a Baptist and not be born again A Presbyterian or a Methodist and still die in your sin You can even be Charismatic shout and dance and jump a pew But if you hate your brother you won't be one of The Chosen Few. Cause it won't be a Baptist that's sitting on The Throne A Presbyterian or a Methodist that's calling us Home And it won't be a Charismatic that plays that trumpet tune So let's all just live for Jesus 'cause He's coming back real soon.Oh Buddha - The Imperials
I’m having a problem with conflicting...........that is a troubling image.
I’ve heard enough from this pampered little turd who has never done anything of value in his useless life.
Another nut not unlike Desmond Tutu. These guys are Hollywood tools of Richard Gere types
Put one of your hands over your right eye.
He is but more importantly his Dharma is solid.
