Secular Buddhism vs other Buddhisms

If you're interested in knowing a little about how Secular Buddhism differs from other Buddhisms, here's a link to a terrific collection of thinking that's recently sprung up on our sibling web site in NZ. 

The link below will take you to an article by a Buddhist monk, Bikkhu Bodhi, about what he calls 'the great divide' between secular Buddhism and the more religious varieties which he lumps together as 'classical' Buddhism.

Make sure you read the responses that follow as they include comments from some very knowledgeable and influential people in the secular Buddhist movement including Stephen Batchelor who is considered the unofficial leading bush-basher for us secular types, as well as our homegrown Winton Higgins who gives an erudite and educational response. I too have commented (Lenore Lambert).
