I think it shows that the banning of firearms in the USA would probably save a lot more lives annually than stopping Muslim visitors.
It's interesting that you can win an election by being racist and sexist but don't dare talking about taking away the right to keep a weapon that kills. This will almost certainly lose an election.

Well, yes, the obvious thing is how terrorist incidents are way outnumbered by othere things, but it is also interesting how evn within terrorist incidents the great majority are not from immigrants but from citizens. It is not so much people coming in with a mission that constitutes the threat - more the radicalisation of people in situ. This is a bit like the "Beware of strangers" message to children when the majority of abuse is committed by people they already know.

Study Group.

We just had a study group meeting at Amida Mandala Temple. Only three of us but a very rich hour. Predictably we came round to the issue of ‘is one Nembutsu enough?’ My understanding: In a sense it is, because when we call Amida we become one with his vow and the Pure Land and thus we are saved. In another sense we have to keep calling him so that he can keep saving us.
