Oh and lets not forget the ragyabpa class of untouchables and how they are treated.

@2: According to Wikipedia, the Dalai Lama has said more nuanced and less weird/awful things about homosexuality since then...

@4, in other words..when rich Hollywood types started to get wind of what he thought of homosexuality he changed his tune.

Got it..

If you'd rather spend less money on lunch instead of dinner and have 100% of it go to a school for girls in India, the Kiran Anjali Project is having its annual fundraiser luncheon on March 14th.

@5: I'm not saying it's not an Achilles heel for him—clearly he has done some backtracking, and not particularly eloquently. He's from a celibate order, I believe, and a different culture; he wasn't just saying anti-gay things, but also anti-masturbation, so, um, it's obviously a viewpoint that's pretty much wholly foreign to us. But give him a little credit for trying to adjust, maybe?
