Quote# 1409

Yeah, [Buddhism is] really organized, considering Siddhartha was an athiest, but as Buddhism spread throughout China, Southeast Asia, and Japan it became a religion that had local gods, demons, spirits and the like. They even worship Buddha statues.

before people rush in here to defend Buddhism, just keep in mind it's a system of forced poverty that have kept millions on the brink of starvation while temples are decorated in gold.

Depends on the denomination. Like, well, just about any other religion.

As Buddhism spread it became different in different places? Sounds like Christianity, and probably for the same reason, the money

Shinto and Hinduism aren't the same thing as Buddhism.

In .jp it is called zen-buddhism, which is a mix of local tradition and buddhism.

Can't see what this quote is doing here though, at least without context.
