"SGI organizations outside of Japan will have no involvement whatsoever in political activities." -- SGI District Leaders Handbook


Thursday, January 15, 2009

Mr. JOHNSON of Georgia. Madam Speaker,
Whereas, SGI President Dr. Daisaku Ikeda
visited Chicago in 1960, witnessed the discriminatory
mistreatment of an African-American
boy in Lincoln Park, and made a vow in
his heart, ‘‘I promise you that I will build a societ
truly worthy of your love and pride!’’; and
Whereas, this year marks 49 years of Dr.
Ikeda’s dedication to the peace and happiness
of all humanity through peace, culture and
education; and pledge to construct a peaceful
world where individuals from all walks of life
feel safe and secure while developing their
fullest potential for the sake of their families
and the greater good of society; and
Whereas, on January 19th we honor and
celebrate a noble and heroic life of Martin Luther
King Jr., whose legacy was to secure not
only civil rights but human moral rights for all
people as expressed in his own words, ‘‘Injustice
anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere’’
Whereas, 40 years after the passing of Dr.
King, we witness on this day the inauguration
of Barack Hussein Obama as 44th President
of the United States, filled with confidence in
the dream of Martin Luther King, Jr., and the
prayers and efforts of countless ordinary heroes
who believed that this day would one day
be possible, expressed in President Obama’s
words, ‘‘This is your victory!’’
Whereas, in my capacity as a member of
the United States Congress, I would like to acknowledge
these behind the scenes efforts of
one such extra-ordinary hero by recognizing,
SGI President Daisaku Ikeda,
as an Emissary peace and justice."


  1. ""SGI organizations outside of Japan will have no involvement whatsoever in political activities." -- SGI District Leaders Handbook

    SGI USA is already maxed out its resources on political activities *within* the organization-- what with having to organize an Internal Affairs office to root out the double agents on their Thought Police force, while rolling out new slogans for the Annual- half-year long Contribution Activity, it's nothing short of miraculous that the political activity required for maintaining the power base of National Leaders has spawned state of the art *cold indifference* toward anything directly related to secular politics.

    The above proposal will become a source of embarrassment before it becomes a moot point, when evidence of active engagement and proof of active involvement in social justice issues is requested,
