    Ao says the temple here is a Dharmaraya, same as in the link
    A big reason she doesn't go because she has heard they were corrupt since she was young

    I always scrutinized the way the hookers would wai to the little temple on the tree or in the bar and continue with their Buddist beliefs through out the night. Same goes for the icons on the dash of the crooked taxis as well.

    I thought it was kinda acceptable to turn to prostitution in extreme circumstances aka making merit by taking care their families at all costs

    Taxi drivers totally different matter and more to do with black magic than Buddhism

    I remember going into heavens above early and the mammy got all the girls lined up.. had em stip down to their panties.. banged a big wooden cock around the room and bit then threw the cock along the floor between all the lined up girls legs..

    One of the girls explained it was asking buddha for them to get a good strong customer that night..

    True interpretation of Buddhism no doubt.

    Just shows the girls get mixed up themselves cause I don't think that has anything to do with Buddhism

    Superstitious beliefs black magic and Buddhism intertwined

    Department of Special Investigation had summoned Phra Dhammachayo and other monks from the temple for questioning after they were accused of receiving more than one billion baht from suspects in the embezzlement scandal.

    Though impossible to determine because of the temple’s refusal to reveal details of its finances, Wat Dhammakaya is believed to be the richest in the country.
    Amazing.. Accused of embezzling a billion baht.. and can still 'refuse' to reveal details of its finances. What does it take to 'demand' a monk do something ??

    The monks have been summoned to the DSI according to your post.
    Then according to The Junta's procedures they will be "disappeared", then "re-educated" following which they will confess.
    Being Monks they will be spared "ethnic cleansing".
    Sipping from the Fountain of Youth that is Thailand.
