Where members are free to take ideas from the Theravāda Canon out of the Theravāda framework. Here you can question rebirth, kamma (and other contentious issues) as well as examine Theravāda's connection to other paths

I think there less than a dozen executions a year in japan, but around 200,000 legal abortions.
