Dearest seeker242, did you say this:Thanissaro Bhikkhu must just be wrong then? Although, I find that hard to believe. More like impossible to believe!

Do you only find it impossible to believe that TB is wrong when he supports your position?
Dearest dzogchungpa. It would be nice if you didn't take comments out of context. But I guess that is asking too much from you. The context of the comment was "killing is bad" and yes it impossible to believe that this is not the case. Since when is one required to agree with everything another says, in order to agree with one thing a person says? Answer: since never.
Very good. So now I am only taking your comments out of context, and in a gently teasing manner at that, not putting words in your mouth, right? My point is that you seem to view TB as some kind of authority, so presumably you would be willing to consider his position on this issue seriously, even if he disagrees with you. Are you?
