Official name of the Unified Buddhist Church[edit]

This was added to the article on August 3:

  • The Unified Buddhist Church (Eglise Bouddhique Unifieé), sometimes known as the Unified Buddhist Church of France and the Unified Buddhist Church of America (see below), was founded by Thich Nhat Hanh in France in 1969, during the Vietnam War (this mainly Western organization should not be confused with the Unified Buddhist Church of Vietnam which represents the "mainstream" of Vietnamese Buddhism).

I've changed this back because it is inaccurate. The American UBC is not called the Unified Buddhist Church of America, and the Unified Buddhist Church of Vietnam does not represent mainstream Vietnamese Buddhism, in fact, the UBCV is banned by the government of Vietnam and it's members are very much in the minority there. The Unified Buddhist Church, Inc. is the American version of the church and was not formed during the Vietnam war, but was founded in 1998. I've never seen either organization written as "Unified Buddhist Church of France" or "Unified Buddhist Church of America", so this would need a citation to verify. The official websites of the organizations don't refer to themselves in this way.Nightngle 22:36, 3 August 2006 (UTC)

Part of the Vietnam Project?[edit]

I disagree that this article is part of the Vietnamese project. The Unified Buddhist Church was created by Thich Nhat Hanh who does happen to be Vietnamese, but this is not the Unified Buddhist Church of Vietnam, nor is there a branch of the UBC in Vietnam. Please do add your thoughts about why you think it should be, though. We do need an article about the Unified Buddhist Church of Vietnam, and I've been meaning to start that, even though it will be potentially controversial. Nightngle 14:11, 28 August 2007 (UTC)
