There are Buddhists in Louisiana? How the fark does that work? I'm a Buddhist in MA and I know of 1 temple in my area, and it's not even my teaching of Buddhism (I'm a Mahayada Buddhist, most Thai/Cambodian/Vietnamese/Indian Buddhists are Theraveda branch Buddhism). I can't imagine how tough it is to find a temple to mediate at down south.

If one judges the quality of a religion (or its founder) by the actions of its followers, Jesus must be a total asshat.

And America should really stop talking about "Constitution" and "democracy" and "fark, yeah" if you're not going to wall off your vicious retards from contaminating the social experiment with their inbred shiat.

Wouldn't all Buddhists just want to be more Buddha-like?

Both types of teachings believe different things. Theraveda believe that only scholars and monks can reach total enlightenment (the Buddha) whereas Mahayana branches believe that all people have the ability to reach total enlightenment.

There are other variances but that's the biggest difference. So, yes, we all want to be more Buddha like, but it's a matter of deciding who has it in them to reach Buddha

I'm not of any particular religion, but I do like to meditate. I would love it if there were places set up where I live where you could just drop in and meditate in a low-lit, quiet area. It can be kind of a pain to try and meditate at home with all the noise.

Yeah, but you do need them for your tax exempt forms from the IRS.
Especially if you intend to pass the plate.

You know, One man, sitting in a store front window probably raised more money and awareness to help sick children than the entire mass of churches in the county he did it in and all he has to do was say "Start your heart, eat a Farkelberry Tart, and tear the world apart"

now THAT's enlightenment.

RIP, Jack.

Maybe that's the problem. His followers are overcompensating.

Daiju visited the master Baso in China. Baso asked: "What do you seek?"

"Enlightenment," replied Daiju.

"You have your own treasure house. Why do you search outside?" Baso asked.

Daiju inquired: "Where is my treasure house?"

Baso answered: "What you are asking is your treasure house."

You may not desire englightenment, but that is ultimately the goal of meditation and Buddhism. The various breeds are more about determining who can actually achieve it through long years of meditative concentration

Every area has it's rubes - we have skinheads in Huntington Beach, but they usually end-up in jail or squaler as a testament to their idiocy.

Still somewhat surprised to see a gov institution trying to get away with this crap, even in the South.

Unfortunately, it's rather sad that a country pretty much founded on the principle of religious freedom (to spare the country from monotheistic shiatshows popular throughout history) oh, and btw, did we mention that this was the first farking Bill O Right we mentioned? would fail so miserably in moving beyond this Jesus vs the world garbage?

Would prefer a state where religion, any religion, is recognized merely as a condition listed in the DSM-5.

They do, they're more or less uniform on how to attain it, but what differs from the traditional sects and more progressive sects is who can attain it.

You seem to be bashing a religion for things that don't actually affect it like you think it would.

Check into yoga or tai chi classes/centers in your area. If they don't offer it they will know if there is a place around that does. You could also try online - groups of people get together in homes to meditate also.
