Re: The Founder Morihei Ueshiba, a God?

This quote from Gaku Homma''s article sums up a great deal about how to placate the concerns of Western montheistic thought when placed in a Japanese context:

"Remember however, we can't judge these activities to be the activities of a serious religion nature. This is Japan, remember.
... Always good to have a god or two on board."


Cordially,
Erick Mead
