The ‘Free’ Exercise of Religion…in Tibet (and at Yale)

I am so glad I turned on Morning Edition on my commute.

While we in America debate the revised HHS rules on contraception, apparently, in Tibet, you’ve got Chinese government agents right inside your Buddhist monasteries. Gotta love having a commissar there while you pray. I don’t think self-immolation is the answer, and apparently neither does the Dalai Lama, but it’s becoming a more prevalent form of protest these days. Twenty-one monks have immolated themselves in the last year.

Meanwhile, Miroslav Volf, a Christian theologian who is big on dialogue with Islam, posts on his Facebook that the NYPD has spied on the Muslim Student Association at Yale.
