I think you are simply misguided in your understanding of other's beliefs. All true believers think their approach has lofty ideals in comparison to others.<quoted text>
Unlike the barbaric teachings of the Hebrew patriarchs, Jesus, Krishna or Muhammad, the teachings of the Buddha are lofty.
The followers of the Buddha are the usual riff raff sections of humanity who have more than their fair share of animal passions and personality flaws.
BTW what barbaric teachings of the Hebrew patriarchs are you referring to?
