Emmanuel shares a lot of great wisdom. He is like an uncle to me. I once said to him, “Emmanuel, I often deal with the fear of death in this culture. What should I tell people about dying?”And Emmanuel said, “Tell them it’s absolutely SAFE!” He said, “It’s like taking off a tight shoe.”---Ram Dass

Maybe my mind works differently or I'm merely slime in the gutter so I guess I'll say it..... Should a spiritual leader, who's name conveniently translates to a 'Servant of God', a self induced drug crazed homosexual who calls himself Ram Dass be taken seriously? I don't think he does but many do. He just reeks from bullshit.

I don't see what Ram Dass's sexual orientation has to do with it. And I doubt he still takes drugs. Are you a homophobe?

Not at all. I just find his choice of a spiritual name insulting to gay men everywhere. If I were gay then I would find it very patronizing.

Why did you call him a crazed homosexual? Sounds like hate speech to me.

Referencing his penchant for ingesting hallucinatory drugs. But I guess you could be crazy and gay like anybody else. 

Is everything hate speech these days? If I said you were nuts to believe in leprechauns then would that also qualify?

Time for dictionary word removal: i.e. imbecile, idiot, stupid etc. Let's have an Orwellian 1984 and burn one word at a time.

So because he did drugs once that makes him crazy? Wow...

Again, why is his sexual orientation an issue here? Why did you even bring it up? Does it make it easier for you to dehumanize him? I think you're a homophobe. That's what I think..You should join Syne's fascist ranks..

“I’m bored’ is a useless thing to say. I mean, you live in a great, big, vast world that you’ve seen none percent of. Even the inside of your own mind is endless; it goes on forever, inwardly, do you understand? The fact that you’re alive is amazing, so you don’t get to say ‘I’m bored.”
― Louis C.K.
