Nichiren Shoshu priest [actual statement]: "Tell them to prove what they say. What they say is ...(essentially) stupid [about the inauthenticity of the DaiGohonzon]....Don't dirty your robe to try to prove anything to them."
Reply: Can you imagine Nichiren saying: "Don't dirty your robe"? He would have said, "Risk your life if you have to. Prove to the world that the Supreme Object of Worship is the DaiGohonzon of the second year of Koan and the DaiGohonzon only."
