Esteem for Buddhism

Thank you for all your interesting pages of Phnom Penh Post. We read them with a

lot of appreciation for your concern to inform the people and help them especially

the poor, needy and the marginalized.

However, in your last issue dated March 23-April 5, 2007, we, the Catholic Church

in Cambodia, are worried about the interview published on page 2 titled "God's

paratrooper fires shots." This article expresses negative ideas about Buddhist

leaders. We regret any hurt feelings and misunderstandings this article could have

caused.

We would like to affirm our profound respect and desire to have good relationships

with the venerable leaders of Buddhism. We assure our great esteem towards Buddhism,

the national religion of Cambodia.
