Dalai Lama and ‘gay’ marriage

We recently found this poster on the internet:

It is seldom touted in the media that Buddhism opposes homosexual acts as “sexual misconduct”, but the Dalai Lama has said so himself.

Buddhism, according to the Dalai Lama, has one set of beliefs for its members and a different set of beliefs for non-members…

“I have two letters, one letter is as a religious believer, I think that we should follow according to one’s holy teachings,” the Dalai Lama said.  “If you are a non-believer, then two persons male or female, they get maximum joy through this technique, they do not create violence (laughs).”

However, the overwhelming evidence that homosexual acts lead to physical and mental harm cannot be ignored – they are acknowledged by homosexual activists themselves.  The harms of the homosexual lifestyle are documented by Bill Muehlenberg in his book, Strained Relations. Bill also shares a recommended reading list here.

Does the Dalai Lama consider Buddhism’s teachings to be the healthiest road for human sexuality?   If so, the teachings should be proposed to the world as such.  If not, then why would Buddhists be asked to practise them?

A consistent Christian worldview proposes that God’s plan for sexuality applies to all – for the common good.  We do well to heed His design.

    this wasn’t a good job of explain his view on human sexuality. it boils down to harm and happiness. obviously, you do not care about presenting biased information
