Years ago, I decided that Buddhism's "beliefs" were similar to my own so I began practicing it. I DO NOT hate anyone. I DO "pray" that everyone achieves enlightenment. Even those people who hate me or wish me harm. I am a pacifist but I love and support our soldiers. I believe in compassion for every living being. Yeah, that means you too. I believe in a Creator but one that has given us the power of wonder not one who would stifle us with dogma. I am far more than you will ever see.
