    Yes, the Buddhists persecute the Christians. Pagans do not have the concept of religious freedom unless educated by the Christians. Secular Westerners are only falsely dreaming about humanity. Nudist Westerners must not claim to be Buddhists; it insults real Buddhists. Buddhists are not nudists; just self-worshiping hedonists are. Tibet needs freedom from both the Chinese atheists and Tibetan Buddhism. Neither atheism/secularism or paganism offers man the freedom of conscience. Everyone needs the freedom that Jesus gives. ( John chapter 8-10)

    Jesus Christ is the embodiment of everything the Buddhists quest after and dream about!! Buddhists do not have to seek something non-existent anymore and humans don’t need to concentrate improving self anymore because Jesus God’s Son came and showed us who God is. He is the Way and the Truth and the Life. ( John chapter 14)
