There are many self proclaimed "Buddhists" that are very angry to those they perceive as "hypocritical" in their faith and belief system and respond in anger towards them whenever they encounter such an individual. There is no compassion in such an attitude and display and end up becoming the antithesis of peace. The end goals of Christians and Buddhists alike is to become at peace and therefore at One within themselves and with one another and the world and not used as the basis of wholesale anger. There are monks that own nothing but their Kasaya with a small bowl that go from home to home begging for food. The live in caves and meditate for weeks or months at a time shunning the world and it's material to achieve Nirvana, the vastness that IS God and the "Peace that is beyond understanding."

Buddhism is MORE than just a "philosophy" IT IS A WAY OF LIVE. For you to use it as a basis of wholesale anger makes you the hypocrite.
