Atheists Fume Over Dalai Lama's Prayer

The Dalai Lama apparently said a prayer in one of the Houses of Government in the U.S, a few days ago. How dare that man bring religion into the political sphere?

Actually no. To the best of my knowledge, not a peep was heard from atheists regarding this prayer in the  public sphere. It's only Christian prayers that are raged against by the fickle hearts of atheists. 

However the prayer itself is of interest to me.

"Speak or act with a pure mind, and happiness will follow you like a shadow that never leaves"
Dalai Lama

That's true of course. 

The trick however is that according to Jesus, and any casual observer of human nature, who we are as humans precludes our ability to speak and act with a pure mind. So corrupt is human nature that even the teaching of Jesus, the most sublime philosophy on earth, becomes corrupted, leaving every generation shredded by those who claim to follow Messiah Jesus.
