In fact the writings and lectures of Li Hongzhi run over 2000 pages, the topics mentioned here do not even occupy 0.001% of his writings and lectures[1]. Why should attention be brought on that alone? Isnt that being a bit sensationalist? further there are other interviews too from NTDTV etc and it is a particular IP's point of view that these statements are "controversial" - thats OR - we cannot stuff things that appear sensationalist or controversial to us into the article just based on our liking. Wikipedia if I understand right has rather strict policies when it comes to material in Biographies of Living Persons. Wikipedia policies specifically state that:

"If someone appears to be promoting a biased point of view, insist on reliable third-party published sources and a clear demonstration of relevance to the person's notability." - WP:Living

"Biographies of living people should be written responsibly, conservatively, and in a neutral, encyclopedic tone. While a strategy of eventualism may apply to other subject areas, badly written biographies of living persons should be stubbed or deleted."

"Biographies of living persons should not have trivia sections."

"When in doubt, biographies should be pared back to a version that is completely sourced, neutral, and on-topic."

"Care must be taken with article structure to ensure the overall presentation is broadly neutral; in particular, subsection headings should reflect important areas to the subject's notability."

"Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, not a tabloid; it is not our job to be sensationalist."- WP:Biographies of Living Persons.
