Another thing that interested me was that the various right-wing Christian dudes were very upset about the supposed moral relativism which is creeping into the culture. They did not like the idea that there is no right or wrong, no good or evil. Sometimes I think people are attracted to Buddhism specifically because they believe Buddhism preaches a kind of moral relativism. But that's not quite right. In Buddhism there is a very clear distinction between right and wrong. Morals are not relative in Buddhism. They are absolute.
