I think that most people believe Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance is good,
Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance—is the foundation of Falun Gong.[/quote]
Don’t forget racism [/quote]
I think this is one example of misunderstanding.
Falun Gong practitioners try to assimilate to Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance, so Falun Gong practitioners treat all people the same way–be kind to all race and mixed-race.[/quote]
Then you might illuminate us on the official position of Falun Gong about mixed race people. [/quote]
[quote]One most inflamatory result was a New York Times journalist who wrote, without attribution, that Falun Gong believes children of mixed race are the “spawn” of the Dharma-ending period (a time of moral decline referred to in Buddhist scripture.) Needless to say, no such language appears in Falun Gong’s teachings. Regrettably, the journalist did not temper his own, outsider’s reading of that passage with investigation or evidence. They failed to check with any living, actual persons who do Falun Gong, preferring, seemingly, to not let a sensational reading of the passage be spoiled by evidence to the contrary.
Had they looked into the matter, they would have found their assumptions to be just that, assumptions. Many who practice Falun Gong have married and had children with individuals of a different race after taking up the practice. Of the 14 individuals who make up the Information Center’s staff, fully 4 fall into this category. If Falun Gong teaches racial segregation, it’s doing a poor job of it.
If the practice does not breed racial intolerance in the life of the individual, one might readily imagine how much less so it translates into a general “stance” on interracial marriage in society.[/quote]

Thanks for that, at least it gives me a starting point.
I still have issues with notions like an invisible wheel implanted in one’s abdomen and ilnesses being cause by evil energies, but ehi, feel free to pray microbes away all you want.
