“Other Activities of the Soka Gakkai”
Nichiren Shoshu uses it in an attempt to demonstrate SGI physical harassment. But a careful reading of the appeal court’s decision — without the coloring Mr. Bratcher tries to give it by including it in his “everything about the SGI is bad” litany — reveals quite clearly that whatever altercation there was occurred when Nichiren Shoshu members began getting physical, and that the intention of the SGI members was dialogue with the priest as they said, and as actually happened when they eventually encountered him at a motel; in fact, when the room filled up with other guests, they broke it off rather than insisting on continued confrontation. The Nichiren Shoshu members were ordered to pay the court costs.
But, Nichiren Shoshu and Mr. Bratcher would say (and have said on ARBN): the court said that if the priest, rather than the Nichiren Shoshu members, had sued, he would have won.
No, of course, the court did not say that. No appeals court would render a decision on a case it has not heard. The court merely said the priest would have had better grounds to file than the members.

There was a stabbing: an SGI member stabbed another, and they had been lovers. Neither is reported to have been a “leader”. The WP refers to them both as “clerks” — and then says that SGI “clerks” are an elite crew that lead all election efforts for the Komeito. They are not. They are clerks. Only Mr. Bratcher calls them “leaders”, and he does so because he wishes to have us believe that the SGI organization is inherently violent. He wishes to do that because it would overshadow the violence he himself does to the truth.
