The Abbot Pra-kru Rangsan from Putta-nimit Monastery, in the Surasak Sub-district, of Sriracha, gave a sermon on Tuesday about the harmful effects of gambling. And, especially since this is Euro 2012 Football Season, and many youths and students were seduced into football gambling scams in previous years, it was an opportune time for the Abbot to discuss the many crimes and tragedies that occurred from the massive loss of cash paid to the gambling networks. Gamblers who lose have to find the dough to pay off the gambling consortium, or face big problems. Unfortunately, many youths do get drawn into gambling on the football games each year.
The Abbot wished for the youths and everyone to act wisely, and avoid being a foolish, and soon to be poor, victim. It is all too easy to fall into the trap of thinking you can make easy money by gambling, and this can be as addicted as bad as narcotics.
