Russell Brand does missionary work for the homosexually intolerant Dalai Lama

by | 16th, June 2012

WHEN Russell Brand and the Dalai Lama met on stage at The Manchester Evening News Arena, talk turned to religion. This was missionary stuff. The Dalai Lama is in the UK to promote Tibet and Buddhism. A crowd of under-25s were given free tickets to the event. Brand would soften them up with star appeal before the Dalai Lama hit them with religion.

Said Brand: “Going from junkie to Shagger of the Year…three times… to now introducing the Dalai Lama. It has been an interesting journey.”

No. It’s precisely the kind of thing Brand would then do. Drugs. Sex. God.

The Dalai Lama’s reps chose Brand because he had proved “the power of spirituality to effect change in his own life”.

The Dalai Lama will continue his tour at the University of Westminster (with Jim Davidson), the London School of Economics and Political Science (Roy Chubby Brown), Edinburgh Usher Hall (The Chuckle Brothers), Caird Hall in Dundee and the Eden Court Theatre in Inverness (Jedward).

One thing to note: The Dalai Lama says lesbian and gay sex is “sexual misconduct“. Does Brand, the Dalai Lama’s PR, agree, then? Is homosexuality wrong?
