    Which one do you think is worth discussing?

    Yes these are another set of terrorists that should be eradicated. Next time these idiots will ask for permission to get married. Next next time they will ask permission to keep two women. Bloody idiots.

    My personal opinion is these Buddhist priests should never allow to drive vehicles solely on the grounds of *conflicting interests*. However, I would rather like to see the learned Buddhist Priests who are well versed in Dhamma and Vinaya to come up with a guideline to handle situations like this than letting it to be decided/ discussed by members of LNP or readers of Daily Mirror or SL Judiciary.

    In the meantime, it would be more fruitful to find out the background of these Buddhist priests who applied for Drivers License, and those who are behind them.

    In other words you want it swept under the carpet. You guys are a bunch of hypocrites.

    They are JSU monks who had bought duty free cars. Now they want to drive around in those cars to spread hatrad, crimilaty, racial discrimination and dirty politics so that they can win a few more seats at the next election. With a few more MPs, they will get more cars. And with more cars, they will be happy in this world. Leave the village idiots to worry about the next life and karma.

    I am not surprised to read about the monk caught with heroin. Some of them do that all the time.

    Personally, I have no objection to monks driving around. I wonder how they will react to rude, non-licensed drivers on the road and accidents. Once they start driving, they will futher denegrade themselves. They will become real clowns wearing suffron robes. This is what they want. Let them have it.

    WK4PCE,

    If wanting learned Buddhist monks to set guidelines for their fellow monks is an act of sweeping it under the carpet, then allowing learned judges to deliver justice (without letting every Tom, Dick or Harry to take care of culprits down the street) must also be an act of hiding those criminal acts under carpet!! Great logic!!

    Think before you write. Thanks.

    This is a crime against society and should be dealt by the same rules and regulations that the society is governed. If this was a ethical issue that deals with religion then that religious order could deal with it.

    WK4PCE,

    What is the *Crime Against Society* here?

    Please explain.
