So far, Daniel and his quotations.
To that, I say:
The resquest of Justice to Judge is precisely in order to clarify past events within their historical context and to erase the roots of slander and gossip against William Judge.
R. Burnier wrote against re-examining past events. I am for re-examining past events, in order to uproot the slanders and gossips against two founders, HPB and W. Judge.
Now, I have an important thing in common with Ms. Radha: both of disapprove slanders and slanderers.
The difference being that I actively try to defend Those from whom I learned and still learn Divine Wisdom.
Best regards, Carlos Cardoso Aveline.
