I caught the Nichiren Shoshu in another lie

"But in their hearts they wield a sword of distorted views, hastening here and there among their patrons and filling them with countless lies so as to keep them away from other priests or nuns." -- Nichiren  Most amusing...I caught the Nichiren Shoshu  in another lie

I caught the Nichiren Shoshu priests in yet another lie

>It still took days of traveling for the Daishonin and the group with
> Him to arrive at the Ikegami residence in Musashi Province traveling
> slowly with Him by horseback or in a horse drawn cart due to His
> critically ill condition. They arrived there at Ikegami on Sept 19th,
> 1282 where He wrote a report of His trip to send to Hakiri Sanenaga in
> Minobu, dated on that same date. In the report, He related that He
> still planned to return to Mt Minobu from "taking the waters in
> Hitachi." But, at the bottom of the letter, He apologized that because
> He was ill, He was unable to even sign it with His own signature. Due
> to the long distance between Mt Minobu and the Ikegami residence
> (located on the outskirts of Edo, present-day Tokyo) and the time it
> would have taken anyone to travel from there to Mt Minobu and back, and
> the closeness of the Daishonin's imminent death, there was not enough
> time left to transport the Dai-Gohonzon there even if He had wanted It
> brought to Him. So, with all of the ability & (Jap.) ichinen that He
> had left in Him at that point, He inscribed what was His last Gohonzon 
> which was placed at His bedside that became His deathbed where
> He died on Oct 13th, 1282. End of story.

They forgot one reference, The Fairy Tale of The Devil King. Now that's a good one, Nichiren Daishonin was too weak to sign the document but not too weak to write a postscript and inscribe a signed Gohonzon. That is rich.
