I hate labels. What is a "Buddhist", anyways? Just someone who calls himself one, right? No one knows what's in one's heart, so self-applying any religious label only opens up oneself to criticism and scrutiny... Having moral convictions mean nothing if they don't show up in one's behaviour. I heard he was an absolute prick to work with and for. So, hearing he had a religious (philosophical?) label means nothing to me. As it does for anyone... walk the talk, or STFU.
