I have been a member of this close-knit community for a long time. Every time around this time of year, just as the church fairs begin ahead of the holiday season, I think to myself: Why are there no Buddhist temple fairs? This discrepancy leaves an uncomfortable feeling in my stomach every year. Is this an outrage?? Should this community be standing up for diversity?? I think so.

watch out for the tax man.........

Tom, the churches put on their fairs. Obviously, if a Buddhist temple wanted to hold a fair they would. Ask the temples why they aren't doing this. It has nothing to do with people standing up for diversity.

Well put Ellen and thank-you for the comment.
