That's because Siddhartha categorically denied being a "god", though that hasn't stopped most of his "followers" from treating him like one. lol What have gold encrusted statues, stupas, dagobas and viharas have to do with practicing mindfulness and compassion?

See what humans do?

Such things are far easier that actually following the teachings.

Besides, saints and gods are FAR more convenient in niches and temples where one can ignore them when one feels like it.

The best way to kill an idea: Build a large gravestone to it, but call it a "monument", a "temple" or a "church".

The Goofy Old Pary is doing just fine - they shouldn't change anything. Just keep on the way they're doing now.

They will never again win a Presidential election.
