I’m just commenting on how religious leaders feel they are entitled to dictate to people how to live. In a secular society with free speech we are empowered to listen to them or not.
He did not. You intrepret what he said as such (or more accurately you believe what some English speaking DPP supporter told you.) He made no mention of any of the DPP favorite pet projects of “Taiwan Identity”, “Neo Nativism” or “Old Nativism.”
Even if I accept your interpretation as correct. It would mean the premise of “Taiwan Independence” and “Taiwan identity” are intertwine. So the political code of Tawain Independence and Taiwan Identity are one in the same. In other words, Taiwan Identity can only exist if and only if there are competing indentities in Taiwan.
Thus, the real danger of Taiwan Independence, how many successful States are founded on the purity of an ethnic group? The Nazi were an utter failure, I don’t expect the DPP to get very far with this platform. And I find White Taiwanese that would support such a racial political aggenda to be quite misguided in Taiwan.
There are 3 major thoughts of Buddism in Taiwan, and quite a few different “tribal” indentities in Taiwan as well. I’m sure they can all co-exist peacefully on the small island with a little bit of tolerance.
Supporting people that don’t tolerate WSR, or WSR with different opinions on the Strait Issue, doesn’t make the DPP or TI more appealing to the general public in Taiwan.
