Disappointing, but I guess little can be expected of the savages in power since the monarchy was overthrown.

KARMA: You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

The sentiment seemed fairly straightforward?

I just wanted to clarify as well--you're not in favor of this ruling?

I prefer secular governments. I really don't like theocracies as they tend to be hostile to those who belief differently than the official line (even if those who "believe differently" are supposedly of the same religion). Governments should remain secular, IMHO.

No, not really. I'm always in favour of religion playing a large public role in the state; and that extends to Nepal.

Okay. That's actually an interesting position. I don't necessarily agree with it, but it's interesting.

I assume there's a reason why you feel that way?
