The lie and the truth

The SGI lie:

"Soka Gakkai is a modern lay Buddhist movement. It is the largest Buddhist sect in Japan with 8 or more million members and an additional 4 million members in other countries. [8] “Soka Gakkai” translates as “Value-Creation Society.” The organization follows the teachings of Nichiren Daishonin (1222–82), a Japanese monk who crafted a reinterpretation of Buddhism based on the Lotus Sutra. Since its founding in1930, The Soka Gakkai has been the object of a lot of criticism and even persecution. Unlike other Nichiren sects, Soka Gakkai does not have a class of priests, and its emphasis is on the practitioner rather than dogma......"Daveler16 (talk) 21:51, 10 July 2014 (UTC)

The truth:

The organization follows the teachings of Nichiu, Nichikan, Nichigen, and the Three Presidents of the Soka Gakka. Like other Nichiren sects, Soka Gakkai has a priestly class [in Ghana, in Singapore, and not to mention the business suited SGI priests of Shinanomachi* Tokyo] but it's emphasis is on Daisaku Ikeda rather than doctrine.
