 Not  that Chuck needs any defending, but I enjoy his postings and believe 
 them to  be at times insightful through the use of humour, they also have the 
 effect of  keeping us all grounded.
 It is a difficult job at times but somebody has to do it.
 When I was young and foolish I sojourned for a time among Christians (ok,  
 the girls were cute and they weren't on drugs!).  And being good Christians  
 they would study their bibles.  Studying the Bible for them meant sitting  around 
 in a circle, reading a verse and then someone would say, "And what  is Jesus 
 telling us?"  Of course they learned nothing but how to parrot  each other.
 At times, it seems that my Theosophical brethren get stuck in a rut of  
 trying to outdo each other in their ability to quote scripture without  
 understanding and hold contests to find out who can pretend to know Sanskrit  better than 
 all others.  There is much comment about doctrines of eye and  heart without 
 recognizing that both have strengths and BOTH have  weaknesses.  The ideas 
 were not meant as clubs to beat thought into  submission to emotion and beat 
 people into meekly accepting the words from on  high.
 For a system supposedly without dogma there is a lot of barking going  on.
