It's a conundrum to be sure, but one which the Christian Right hopes its flocks will figure is too deep to ponder and leave to their "betters" - the ones in control of their souls and their lives ... through politics and government.
*Buddhism is not a religion in the sense that it "worships" a god. It is, rather, a promotion of a state of being. Those who deride Buddhism as an idolatrous "religion" are clueless as to what Buddhism is about. Buddha is honored, not worshiped. The spirit of Buddha is looked upon for guidance to transformation.
