    What if America was predominantly Buddhist instead of Christian?

    Less people would go to Christian Churches

    itís an election with no Democrats, in one of the whitest states in the union, where rich candidates pay $35 for your votes. Or, as Republicans call it, their vision for the future.

    The US would be poor.

    No war machine.

    It would be extremely hard to fathom. The US, in general, is very materialistic, something that doesn't really 'sit well' within the Buddhist doctrine.

    There would be no war machine of course, Buddhism being a pacifist religion. Probably more harmony in personal ordeals, but the US would have little world power, as most of it was gained because of military strength and money.

    Who made the gas attack on the Tokyo subway. I believe that was a Buddhist terrorist group. No person can live by the bible of their religion. Human nature will let them down if they try.

    It is a form of socialist lunacy ......I think


    What if America was truly Christian (turn the other cheek, if a man asks for your coat give him your shirt also, judge not lest you be judged)?.

    No specific country is an expression of the higher philosophical values aspired to by individual adherents of religion (whatever flavour) and that most certainly includes politicians and religious leaders.

    It is said Bhutan might come close but even then it is not without some problems.
