Generalizing again? Do you know all the monks here ? BTW,posting the same comment twice doesn't make it more accurate.

....You of all know that they not do anything it does not benefit them. You know that there are NOT real monks in Phuket, only money and more money greedy monks.

Dek, why shouldn't they, or do you support the violent assaults on women.

....why should buddhist monks not? Perhaps to express/carry out the thinking of Lord Buddha in this matter? How about that?

DeKaaskopp | 26 November 2018 - 17:36:57

K,why should they?

Maybe #MeToo campaign it`s coming to Thailand soon.

Phuket has many buddhist monks. I not see any monk joining the campaign to walk with, and support the people.  Why?
