An Open Letter from Norm Phelps to the Dalai Lama
 Comments by Bruce Friedrich - 16 Jun 2007

I am in favor of considering everything, but if we draw more attention
to the fact that the Dalai Lama is not a vegetarian, etc., I think the
overwhelming message will be:

Even the Dalai Lama is not taking the vegetarian message seriously.

It's us versus the Dalai Lama, and so mostly, this press will be
counterproductive to our goals. Even if we get our points in (and I'd
bet a lot of money that they'd be glossed over and not fully explained;
the main message will be "Vegetarians call Dalai Lama a hypocrite,"
etc.), most people will just think, "Well, if HHDL is not veg, clearly
it must not be a big moral issue."

If we could get some MAJOR moral figure to write, that would be
something, but there is no one with his clout who is a vegetarian. I
mean, we'd need Nelson Mandela or Bono to write, and they are not veg. either.
