And The Ecumaniacs Wet Their Pants
Film at 11

A few posts ago, we discussed certain prayers that by-pass Jesus, and go straight to The Father. As if that wasn't irritating enough, now I'm treated to this bit of religious artificial insemination; some Buddhist dude who sees little difference between Buddha, my grandfathers (Harry and Antonio), and our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

And all the better (worse), Swish That Hand, or whatever the hell his name is, is touring "Catholic" Universities.

Not much difference between Buddhism and Christianity, if...
Vietnamese Buddhist monk to touch down at local Catholic universities

Vietnamese Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh is making a United States tour, with a couple of stops at Catholic universities in California.

Nhat Hanh’s first visit will be to Loyola Marymount University on Sept. 5, where he will receive the 2007-2008 Doshi Family Bridgebuilder Award. The event is sponsored by the Center for Religion and Spirituality, Bellarmine College of Liberal Arts, Department of Theological Studies, and the Doshi Professorship for Indic and Comparative Theology. (I'll bet St. Robert Bellarmine is thrilled)

On Tuesday, Oct. 2, the monk will be keynote speaker at the University of San Diego’s 18th annual Social Issues Conference. The event will feature, beside’s Thich Nhat Hanh’s address, a walking meditation, and, on the following two days, a concert for peace, and a Mass for peace. (God forbid that someone from The Sisters of Charity, or someone like them, be the keynote speaker)

Nhat Hanh says “there will not be much difference between Buddhism and Christianity” if Christians pray as Buddhists do, “with mindfulness, concentration and especially insight.” This three lead one to realize, according to Nhat Hanh,
that the one to whom he prays – Buddha, Jesus, or one’s grandfather – exist in “new manifestations,” in “new forms.”They are “always in you and around you.” (Pass me the bong, dude.)
