The other day a friend of a friend, knowing I practiced Zen, said to me, "We had a service at my church that incorporated principles of the Buddhist faith." When I asked him what that meant, since I didn't quite understand what that would look like, he looked confused.
He then said, "Well I go to a church that says all paths are valid."
I said, "That may be, but you still have to pick one and stick with it some to begin to get anywhere."
Later, when I was far out of earshot, he told my friend that he was surprised I was so "opinionated" for being a Buddhist, since Buddhists are supposed to be "open" and "accepting."
Poor guy, seems no one ever told him that Buddhism is about cutting through delusion and putting an end to defilement.
