More Than Disappointed

Recommended Posts

"Disappointed" shouldn't be, the man did a runner and his in the wind now, the monkshood has definitely has changed since the days of true abstainity and righteousness are long gone and each one is to himself including monks and abbots...

Mine says the same, and I wonder how is the bad side?

During this time I have been impressed with the service and dedication of our visiting monk, and my wife always said he was the good face of Thailand.

You remind me of the movie "The Sting".

The Roman Catholic Church is one of the richest institutions on Earth, all monies coming from poor believers.

ah, but they got smart. In medieval times, they introduced the rule, forbidding priests from marrying, so as to make sure the money stayed in the church.

Don't let a few miscreants make you think that they're all bad. Thais could say the same about you, because of the bad behaviour of rude lager louts in Soi Nana. I'm sure you'd hate that to happen.

I find them generally to be a waste of space, leaches on society, taking from the poor to glorify themselves and their temples.  I find them and it all very distasteful. To the endless upset of Mrs P, I will not set foot in a temple, or give a monk the time of day and I have flatly forbidden her to give them any food in the mornings.  I cant stop her giving merit at the temple, nor would I try, but I have told her how stupid and distasteful I find it all. .
