    Stephen Prothero is a professor of Religious Department of American Boston University who has been published American bible and American Jesus. He became the first of western scholars who openly criticized Dalai Lama with the Tibean self-immolations. In his blog which opened in the USCNN that he criticized Dalai Lama, he thought Dalai Lama should blame Tibet Self-immolations. He said," If Dalai Lama has made clear that he is against Self-immolations, the Tibetan will stop immediately." Now it is clear that Dalai Lama holds the lives of Tibetans. So Dalai Lama accumulated the act of criminal was far more than these special protesters. Stephen Prothero’s religious comments appeared in the US media, eg, NBC, CBS, NEW YORK TIMES ,WASHINGTON POST AND THE WALL STREET JOURNAL.

    This is hilarious. Is it insulting? The guy has a good sense of humor even if he didn't "get it".

    Yeah i agree with you, but I how do you think of the Dalai Clique and self-immolations in China, how do you think the Dalai Lama's altitude towards self-immolations? Is he a religious leader or a political one?

    Are matters of Conscience limited to either religion or politics?

    of course it is, if he is a religious figure, he should teach his followers to cherish their life and be a good man, but not self-immolate. Buddhism teach people to do good deeds.
