OK.I am convinced by what you just wrote about women in Buddhism that I can never embrace it. It is so backwards. I cannot imagine an enlightened being saying such stupiod things as you quote him about women.

And even more disturbing is the following quote from what you just wrote:

. "And though Shakyamuni Buddha made his advent expressly for the purpose of preaching the Lotus Sutra, during a period of forty-two years, he kept the name of that sutra secret and never referred to it. It was only when he reached the age of seventy-two that he first began to intone the title of the sutra, Myoho-renge-kyo. "


This I believe is an outright lie. The buddha did not speak Japanese. Period. Take your lies elsewhere. No apologies
