  • fun faith fact! Jet Li believes that all religions offer something positive for those that follow them.

Actor and Chinese martial artist Jet Li has starred in numerous movies, including The Expendables with Sylvester Stallone and Lethal Weapon 4 with Mel Gibson. He has been a follower of Tibetan Buddhism as a part of his martial arts career, and has many deep and interesting thoughts on religion. Here's a sample:

"Is there a religion that is superior morally and spiritually with respect to all others? I strongly believe the answer is no. Sure, religions differ from one another in their outward trappings, in the Gods their followers worship, in the customs and rituals which their practitioners observe. But upon closer inspection, the underlying heart and central principle in every religion is the same. Every religion boils down to love, to a respect for all living things, to choosing peace over violence as a means of resolving a conflict. The essence is universal; it is only the means to the end that varies."
