Even the bad guys have PR sites these days. From the cuddly looks of this buddhist sect leader, you'd never have assumed he was responsible for the only large-scale act of terrorism in Japan in recent memory (the Tokyo subway Sarin gassing).

Reasons to hate this dude:

1.) Killed a bunch of folks
2.) Has an imbedded MIDI on his page

Haha, rklawler. I guess the dude forgot to type "underground porn industry" before the news word.

Ah, the old "we kill people with nerve gas, but we're still nice folks" defense.I've read that Ashahara's followers drink his urine, which in enough reason to avoid them like the plague.
