Re: My membership application with Adyar TS

Dear Perry,

This appears to be a blessing in disguise.  From past experience with 
ARE, I suggest that if membership in an organization is something you 
have mixed feelings about, that's probably a signal to drop it.  For 
years when my annual renewal came up I would agonize over whether or 
not to renew.  Eventually I concluded that the feeling of uncertainty 
was a signal that this was not the best course to pursue.  You wrote:

CWL is a sacred cow, and nonbelievers in him are tolerated only to 
the extent that they avoid offending his admirers.  That's how I read 
it.  In Perth of all places the cult of CWL must be protected against

But there really is no such process.  At least since 1982, CWL 
believers must simply stick their fingers in the ears and shout "la-
la-la I can't hear you" or "Tillett tells malicious lies" because 
they have no ground to stand on.  No criticism or debate can be 
allowed because the result will always be the same, defeat for the 
Leadbeaterian position.  And we can't have that now, can we?

Ever consider the Pasadena TS?
