I have read most of the posts by now, but not all. My response is that people are far more concerned about me, than Buddhism. You are not addressing the central arguements that I make in my "What is Wrong with Buddhism" You Tube video. It is that the very existence of the Buddha's teaching in the future that is being threatened by counterfeit teachings. People can't tell the difference. This issue is far more grave than Brian's Ruhe behavior in the video.
You also misquote Ajahn Sona. He never told me that Mara Made Mahayana. I got that line from a Buddhist Ph.D. student of Professor A. K. Warder at the U of Toronto. And Bandu didn't believe that himself. Ajahn Sona told me, "Many monks believe that." Quite wisely, you notice that he didn't answer the question and he didn't express what he believed. It's obviousluy an important matter but monks DON'T talk about this. I chose to do so for the benefit of others. The Buddha criticized all kinds of people and he certainly criticized wrong view. My suggestion is that you give some thought to truth. What is the truth? It's not enough for you to discuss Brian Ruhe's motivations. What about the true teachigs of the Buddha in the Pali suttas?
May you be well, happy and peaceful,
