I don't even know what to say to people that think like that....what would you say to someone that said that ?
I think it's better to say nothing....they wouldn't understand anyways....or appreciate....
What does "worse" mean? "Worse" isn't an argument, just a feeling. Why shouldn't he dislike something you like? Surely you must dislike something or other that he happens to like a lot. Have compassion. If he's confusing feelings for an argument, gently point this out to him. Ultimately, all likes and dislikes have been washed away.

I see no logic in the fragments you posted, but surely you can see how someone might arrive at the conclusion that TB is not perfect?

Heh, half learning. Does he know the Dalai Lama's not even head of the Gelug tradition?
Dislike is not a problem. Whether or not this is all he has to say on the matter, I hope he takes a good, hard look at his dislike one day.
PS. Also, look at it this way: He dislikes TB. You dislike his dislike of TB. Hatred begets hatred and the cycle never ends.
