People in white: We already stopped… when will you stop?

[Reference is to the former Phra Mitsuo Gavesko, a Japanese man who traveled to Thailand more than 30 years ago. He went into monkhood and garnered respect and faith from a large number of Buddhists, Thai and foreigners alike who followed his teachings and became celibate. Somehow, he recently decided to leave the monkhood and marry one of his followers. He admitted, when asked, that he was happier being a layman. This choice appeared scandalous to Thai society and as a betrayal of this past teachings and examples.]
