Bart -- A dose of theosophical history is in order.
Except some of the history seems to be self-contradictory. For example...
The decision to abolish the parent society was made by Olcott and
HPB when they met after Olcott received the letter on the Shannon,
which was precipitated in HPB's absence while Olcott was alone.
Then why did Olcott continue to be actively President of an
organization that did not exist?
created in 1875, and Judge was most active in that corporation. The
Adyar TS claim that it was founded in 1875 is baloney. Olcott did
not even go to Adyar until several years later; thus, the Adyar TS
could not have existed in 1875. (Do you understand that?)
Then why did Judge try so hard to become the President of the
Theosophical Society in Adyar?
After answering your questions several times, you still do not
understand. This is a problem that you must come to terms with, in
a way most suitable for you.
The problem is not what's being said. It's what's not being said.
Wheaton is claiming the reason for the lawsuits is misappropriation of
property. Tacoma is claiming that the reason for the appropriation of
property is the lawsuit. Tacoma claims that Wheaton is appointing
members to the Tacoma Lodge, but the bylaws of the TSA do not give it
such a power, and I have never heard of such a thing happening before.
Tacoma claims that the TSA wants to control what it teaches, but neither
side has specified what teachings Tacoma objects to, nor what teachings
Wheaton objects to.
In other words, frankly, I think BOTH sides are hiding something.
