When I told my friend that I REALLY am disturbed she just said show me the site I am not afraid when I did she said that they were just a bunch of disgruntled memebers and most of the stuff was during the split when there was a lot of confusion..
Well most of us here left after the split. But yes, after the split SGI showed a new face which was Ikeda all the way ... actually they did what they accused the priesthood of - worship of a person.
Anyway it would be strange thing for a staunch believer in Ikedaism to admit being in a cult. An adict would never admit having a problem. SGI has cultish behavior towrds the inside i.e. fear tactics being used and telling peopel to be part of a chosen group and an external side being intolerant otwards other faiths. As if true religious dialogue would be carried out poeple form the outside, people who have their own firm religious believe would find some things in SGI disturbing.
