In the states, Churches can be seen everywhere. People worship Gods, and going to Church on Sunday. What if you are Buddhist? Do you have a temple to go to? I have a couple of friends who are Buddhists, they have travel far away to find a temple on the special holidays. Have you ever seen any temple in your area?

I'm staying in Malaysia, which is a multi-racial country. There are Malays, Chinese, Indians and also other races, hence there are mosques, churches, Chinese and Indian temples around. It's not difficult to find a temple in my area.

The area I live in doesn't have any sort of Temple. But it's not like people are refusing to recognize the Buddhists. It's just like that all over the U.S. In the area of Virginia I live in, it was predominantly English settlers who after a few hundred years started to build nothing but Baptist churches. After the Civil War, a lot of the remaining people went further south, and in the early 1900s, a whole mess of Irish and Italian immigrants settled here. Well, of course, Catholic churches had to be built to represent their religion. It just took a little time to do so. When the population demands it, Temples will be built. At the rate the U.S. is going now, there will be nothing but Temples and Mosques. Unfortunately, the secular movement in America only recognizes a person's right to worship if it's not Christianity (read: White male religion) ...
