    Geshe Lhakdor – What Are Universal Values?

    His Holiness the Dalai Lama, even when I was working in his office as his translator, he was very concerned about the degeneration of human values everywhere. What Are Universal Values? Therefore, he started writing these smaller booklets like Compassion and the Individual, A Human Approach to World Peace, Global Responsibility and so forth. And then gradually he wrote the book Ethics for the New Millennium. Then as an expansion to that, he wrote this book, Beyond Religion. Now he has asked me and some of my friends to work on a project compiling books and probably to start an institution also, to promote this idea of secular ethics. Now…

    A Day in the Life of a Modern American Exorcist

    There is a war that is being waged between good and evil. Faith in God will lead us in one direction, the lack of faith will lead us in another. I have seen many manifestations of evil. Exorcism is the only cure for one who is truly demonically possessed. The Catholic Church knows that most of these claims are baloney.

    Take On America with OZY – Nashville

    Right now we are living in a white privileged world. There’s no such thing as white privilege. There is a reason why there is separation of church and state. And I carry. It makes me feel safer. I know that he’s very crass, but I didn’t hire him to be my pastor. I hired him to fix the economy I don’t care about the tax code. I want people to have healthcare no matter what. I am particularly appalled by the systemic suppression of of minority voters. We’re the United States of America, and we’re in this together. Do the things that we can all agree on.
