Dalai Lama criticizes anti-whaling protestors

There are two articles about this here:

Dalai Lama criticises anti-whaling protestors
Dalai Lama's double standards with regard to whaling

How can it be that a man who preaches compassion will not show it for defenseless animals? He shot birds with his air rifle from the Norbulinka Palace in Tibet, is an avid eater of meat, and now is speaking out publicly against anti-whaling protestors.

The Dalai Lama shows that he lacks integrity and principle when he bows to political influence and says what people want him to say -- in this case, the Japanese authorities. This is the problem of mixing religion and politics. It is another example of why the Dalai Lama is basically untrustworthy, a self-seeking worldly politician masquerading as a popular religious figure.

For more on the Dalai Lama's deceptive dual nature as politician and religious leader and the harm this has caused in Tibet and India, see A Great Deception.
