I'm very tolerant of Satanists.  They are some of my biggest fans!

Hi Perry

But surely this doesn't mean tolerance and embracing diversity of false religions? Are we to be tolerant of satanists (if they truly exist) are we to be tolerant of cults that offer death as a reward?

I would have expected more from the Dalai Lama than this. Also religions into two types, one those that believe in a creator and those that don't - presumably he is talking about athiests?

Hi All,
Last night I went to see the Dalai Lama when he spoke here in Perth 
on "Ethics for the new millennium" as part of that speech he 
mentioned that religions can be divided into two types, those that 
are theistic and those that have no concept of a God or Creator.

He emphasised the importance of having tolerance and embracing 
diversity by developing a deeper understanding of each tradition and 
respecting its differences.
Even if traditions have very different understandings and beliefs we 
need to practice loving kindness and tolerance.
