One other thing, the more recent SGI member threats, spin, and intimidation witnessed on my Fraught With Peril Blog are gone. As you may know, they shut it down. The more recent foolish, mean, slanderous, columniatiing, and irrational comments by SGI members are no longer available to the public. Now they don't even bother to comment. It is even more important to hide their ugly faces than t

QuoteTaitenAndProudBTW, all those sources Nichijew posted are from 13 or more years ago, in some cases 50 years ag. The new improved kinder gentler SGI? It is SO much better. The reality is, the powers that be shut down SGI member participation on unmoderated newsgroups. They created what amounts to a news blackout. They went on stealth mode.

In their minds, SGI must feel they can lessen their karmic retribution for the tens of thousands killed by the arms manufactured by their partner Mitsubishi by sending up a silly satellite.

They are lead by the bridle like so many horses. SGI teaches much that is false and they package it neatly in their periodic study exams for the purpose of brainwashing the members. This is one reason SGI members reside in the realm of darkness. Another reason is that they have neither seeking spirit to study other than the SGI materials nor do they exercise their powers of critical thinking.
