Religion and Stoners and Hippies, Oh My!

jabberwokky and sylvercatt in a thread on mock_the_stupid which originally was a discussion on anorexia, but it turned a bit to celebrities and religion.


jabberwokky: [...]like Buddhism, which if you ask any high school girl or middle age pilate goer, they will tell you "has no absolute rules and laws like those terrible western religions". But if you bring up the four noble truths, the eightfold path, the five precepts and the three marks of existence, you're "just making those up... cuz Buddha was all like 'do you own thing, man'".

sylvercatt: Apparently they confuse Buddha with Buddy, the old hippy stoner that lives down the block from them.
