I have a new blog up at the Suicide Girls safe-for-work site. So go look at it!
The article is about the Garrison Institute sponsored Buddhist "Maha Council" going on right now in upstate New York. Marnie Louise Froberg wrote this very incisive critique of the event. Although it's quite long, it's worth reading, I think. My own critique over at Suicide Girls is not quite as cutting as her's.
I don't agree with absolutely everything Marnie says in her piece. But the stuff she says addresses pretty much all of my own concerns about this gathering and gatherings like it. And I agree with most of her opinions. In my own piece I tried to steer away from re-stating what she already said more eloquently.
For those of you who still can't access the SG SFW site, I'll re-post my piece here in a couple days.
