The BPF is indeed active around the world--even here in America: I take 
pride in being one of the charter members of the new incarnation of the 
Los Angeles chapter, begun last year. But what I really want to point 
out is that the BPF is just one group within the larger organization, 
The Fellowship of Reconciliation, begun in 1914 by Christians hoping to 
head off WWI. It now embraces chapters representing many religions and 
some non-religious groups working together for peace, justice, 
sustainability, etc., and doing so in the open as Buddhists or Jews or 
Methodists or what-have-you. Unless I misread the meaning of Richard's 
words (which is, as we've established, not unlikely), this is just the 
sort of cooperative social action he was calling for.
