We see numerous references to the evils of religion. The majority of the time it's aimed at Christianity, with Islam rating 2nd, and sometimes maybe Judaism following in 3rd place.

However, when it comes to Buddhism, the anti-religion theme seems to often take take a different twist. The religion of peace, non-judgmentalism. non-theistic, etc. Some will say it's not a religion.

In America, it's quite evident that many would love to see Christianity disappear (or at least remain behind closed doors). But that sentiment does not seem to exist, at least not anywhere to the extent of Christianity, towards Buddhism. For instance, we don't see The Freedom From Religion Foundation going after the MindUp program promoted by Goldie Hawn, which incorporates Buddhist meditation into public schools.

How willing are groups like the FFRF and individuals to take the alleged problem of religion to a higher level? Those who say Christianity is dangerous, to say Buddhism is dangerous?
