Chris Evans is Captain America. In real life, his brother is gay. He's not ashamed of his brother. But he is ashamed of America. When the guy who literally wears the American flag on his sleeve is ashamed of his own country, it's time for things to change.
Understanding and Respect
Learning about other faiths helps us to understand, and to live side by side with, differing views and belief systems. To remain in one tradition without absorbing the benefits of the others seems disrespectful to the gifts that the Buddha passed down to us. Only through mutual understanding and respect can we successfully implement what the Buddha taught.
