Please do not advocate censorship

by Steve Sampson, Grand Rapids, Michigan (USA), The Buddhist Channel, July 1, 2007

I agree with the Rev. Dogo Barry Graham Sensei in his thoughts on the letter by E.W. Silke. I agree as a practicing Buddhist and as an adult human being.

Besides ignoring what the Buddha actually taught, what E.W. Silke is advocating is nothing less than censorship. Adult human beings do not need censorship.

No one has the right to make the decision about what another human being may read or think. I do not want E.W. Silke to tell me what is proper or not proper for me to read; that is my decision.
