Cult vs SGI: Part 4
UPDATED 5th January 2015
In response to my post "CULT vs SGI", Mark (Buku) posted a list of thirteen reasons why the SGI is a destructive cult by definition (see Cult vs SGI - Part 2). I responded to these at Cult vs SGI - Part 3 and this page originally had links to Mark's responses to the first four of these points.
Around June 2013 Mark deleted his old pro-Kempon Hokke blog, launching his Eagle Peak Blog, which is still predominantly anti-SGI, and explained why he left the Kempon Hokke. Unfortunately, this meant that the links on this page were now dead.
Since then I have updated this page a few times with explanatory footnotes to explain why the links were dead as well as an ongoing commentary on Mark's lack of response to the final eight points despite him having mentioned in a comment in June 2012 that he would do so, and returning to this page to leave comments in September 2013 and January 2014. It wasn't until five months ago, on 31 July 2014, that Mark finally reposted the first four points and responded to points 5 to 13.
Today, having noticed that this page is currently "trending" in my list of popular posts, I have decided to tidy it all up, deleting all of the dead links, updates and footnotes, and clearly marking below the links that respond to all of Mark's 13 responses. Please enjoy ...
