John Petry, lawyer and lay leader of the Nichiren Shu: "The [Christian] United States is as bad as ISIS"
He has absolutely no gratitude for the country of his birth where he is free to practice the religion and sexuality of his choosing without the slightest fear of having his head separated from his body. Were the Nichiren Shu the same faith as Nichiren Daishonin, Petry would be able to see clearly. He would never say such a stupid thing. To rely on the Nichiren Shu to arrive at such a splendid place [the Buddha's land] is as futile as finding "water in the midst of fire".
