I think I know why, though. He’s got a theory in the back of his mind that every religion on earth is just Christianity in disguise with problems.
Even at the most open minded I could possibly get (any further and my brains would fall out) why isn’t this guy alert for doctrines of demons? One might be able to TRY to claim that about a peaceful faith like Buddhism. But the book of Islam is like cover to cover wickedness. That’s why Jimmy Carter, that inveterate Sunday School teacher, pored over it in vain looking for an opening for the nicey-nice offense.
Buddhism isn’t peaceful. Only the Western version people are sold. Entirely good Buddhists have lopped off heads and done horrible things in the past all in the name of Buddhism.
But yeah, I can't see how he can really say this.
