I don't know how long you've been doing this, but all the chanting is doing is enabling a "trance like" state of mind to be achieved, which can enable spirits to influence how you think. Believe it, or not.
This is Soooooooooo NEW AGE, it just leaps off the screen at me from darn near every thread I visit on these BB's.
The chanting. droning, trance like stuff came out of the mystery religions in babylon. Modern technology [ electricity and computers ] has just improved on what has been known since the fallen angels stole secrets from heaven. The tibetan monks just use their voices.
I hope some day, before it is too late, it dawns on you, how well you've been deceived, and you divorce yourself from it. [ satan was not called the most subtle beast of the field because he was a flunky you know ]

If you feel that strongly about it, why not start a thread on SGI here? Or check out one of the myriad groups on the internet that are also very confused about what SGI do. I myself am not SGI and I have met many people who have left the organization confused and hurt. I hope that things are better for you now.
When you reach true enlightenment you will come to know the very Creator of the "mystic law" itself, and attempt to join your being with His will.
The sutras themselves speak clearly of gods and demons as well as nirvana, reincarnation etc... One should not trivialize these aspects of the study because they are the deeper reality.
I'd like to ask a few pointed questions if I may:
You say that spiritually the Lotus Sutra is a dead end? Why? What makes you say that? I disagree, but I am very interested to hear what you have to say.
OK I am listening. Are you truly enlightened?
Although I don’t believe in a Living God like you do, I do agree with your sentiments about the Bodhisattva Way.
