"No religion teaches people to kill"

This little piece of unhappy news from Thailand via Sujatin, a Pureland Buddhist minister in the UK, that seemed to slip by our American myopic mainstream news.

About 20 suspected Muslim separatists stormed a monastery, hacked an elderly Buddhist monk to death and fatally shot two temple boys Sunday in southern Thailand, police said.

The quote in the title was from Waeuma Waedolloh, kamnan of tambon Tanyong Luloh in Pattani, Thailand, trying to keep calm and loosen the focus as a religious hate crime.

(A kamnan is the elected commune headperson of a tambon or group of neighbouring villages.)

So sad for the monks and attendent boys, the surrounding village, and for the perpetrators of the murders.
