Thailand's media continued to report on the fallout of the case of the "Holy Father" in the NE of Thailand, a mystic who advocated that his disciples eat his body secretions.

 

This, said Phra Bida, would promote good health. He is facing many charges for running a cult on encroached land.

 

Yesterday Royal Thai Police deputy spokesman Pol Col Siriwat Deephor said that the police respect religion and those with superstitious beliefs.

But when it comes to protecting public health they are obliged to act. 

 

He noted that loony cults and religions exist all over the world leading to mass suicides, bombings and other crime.

 

The RTP would act when the public are threatened.

Had to come and read the article to see if they were saying that they respect religious beliefs, but won't respect public health.  Not a great title.

Very true, how big does a cult have to become before it’s a bonefide religion.
