戦前に靖国神社が侵略戦争を推進していた。では 今日の閣僚参拝はどう説明出来るでしょうか???「平和憲法」の日本にこの実態に矛盾を感じます・・・

The Yasukuni Shrine was one of the main institutions that incited the Japanese war effort. It is also “home” to the “spirits” of A class war criminals. Today, cabinet ministers and members of the diet paid their respects. I struggle to find a reasonable explanation for this contradictory demeanor when Japan’s constitution proudly upholds the notion of “peace”….  The Peace Constitution.

Japan ministers visit war-related shrine, 1st time under DPJ gov’t

One thought on “平和憲法と靖国参拝の矛盾さ。The contradictory nature of a Peace Constitution and visits to Yasukuni Shrine.

  1. Visits to the shrine are also controversial in the domestic debate over the proper role of religion in Japanese government. Some Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) politicians insist that visits are protected by the constitutional right to freedom of religion and that it is appropriate for legislators to pay their respects to those fallen in war. However, proposals for the construction of a secular memorial, so that those wishing to honor Japan’s military dead do not have to visit Yasukuni, have thus far failed, ostensibly for technical details rather than the rejection of a secular memorial. The Japanese government conducts yearly memorial services to commemorate the War in Budokan (a secular building) which is near Yasukuni shrine, so that the attendees can later visit Yasukuni Shrine privately if they so wish. The shrine itself objects to any proposal that a non-religious memorial be built, stating that “Yasukuni Shrine must be the one and only memorial for Japan’s military dead.” Koizumi has claimed that his visits are to ensure that there will be no further wars involving Japan, causing some to interpret them as an act of remembrance rather than reverence.
