Buddha takes Beliefnet’s Politic-O-Matic quiz …
How would Buddha vote?
We look at Buddha’s teachings that we should all find our own personal truths and our own way of enlightenment. So, it seems he would answer “How do you feel about abortion?” with the answer: “No one should be able to tell a woman what she can or can't do with her body.” It seems he would place medium importance on this. And so it goes through Politic-O-Matic’s 19 questions. Non-intervention, non-judgment and a focus on one’s personal search for truth with complete disregard for the world’s conflicts would be our guide as we choose how Buddha would respond on issues such as abortion, gun control and the death penalty.
