Kinder gentler Sensei: "We must resolutely crush them"

"On the other hand, it is the members of the priesthood today that have become "devils" and "those in league with devils" who seek to halt the flow of kosen-rufu and who are destroying Buddhism. They are enemies of kosen-rufuand enemies of Buddhism who seek to render the Buddha's words meaningless.
"For this reason, we must resolutely crush [Bokumetsu] them. Between the Buddha and devilish functions, there is no middle ground. If we fail to fight, or if our effortsare only half-hearted, then we will become allies of these devilish functions." May 23, 1993 speech by Daisaku Ikeda, Kyushu Ikeda Auditorium, Fukuoka City, Japan World Tribune, June 28, 1993 (p.4)
