Re: more religious issues
On a side note (if I'm not wrong and memory serves)... the current president or advisor to Aikikai Indonesia was a direct student of Osensei. He is also a muslim. And he didn't bow to shomen. Osensei did not berate him or throw him out for his 'unbudolike' behaviour...
Say what you will about japanese culture or beliefs or whatever, Osensei understood religion and faith. He did not discriminate against it.
Men... and their zeal...
Thanks for posting that!
