Mahayana Buddhism Is Like Catholicism

a: Mahayana buddhism ~
b: Catholicism

What: "Mahayana Buddhism is like Catholicism in that both religions deify their prophet and worship him with the understanding of him as being beyond mortal. Theravada Buddhism, on the other hand, is more like Oriental Orthodox Christianity in that both follow the teachings of their prophet without attributing to him any form of divinity or supernatural aspects.
