Sacramental yet parent-child attachment!

It is noteworthy that Japanese people are generally broad-minded about other religions for no reason.

Happy New Year, 2017!

Monozuki: "It is noteworthy that Japanese people are generally broad-minded about other religions for no reason."

Some are, some aren't. Best not to generalize. And some in power in Japan weren't always so broad-minded, and some still aren't. Might be good to watch "Silence", coming out this month.

Enjoy, people!!
