"Yay, us!"?

"Wow... I'm sorry you've had bad experiences with SGI members. I know in the past we were more intolerant of other sects because our roots are in the teachings of a 13th century Buddhist reformer, Nichiren Daishonin. He had little tolerance for priests claiming to be Buddhists, but using their power to stifle people. He felt the power of Buddhism had been corrupted and enlightenment was accessible to all people. He's rather hardcore in his message. Things have changed since we broke away from our priesthood. We're even invited to play with other Buddhists at International Conferences these days. Yay, us!" -- SGI leader
