HPB Speaks on Slanders
Jan 04, 2007 01:31 PM
“No Society has ever been more ferociously calumniated and persecuted by the ‘odium theologicum’ since the Christian Churches are reduced to use their tongues as their sole weapon – than the Theosophical Association and its Founders”. (1)
And a few sentences before that she had written:
“... He who hears an innocent person slandered, whether a brother Theosophist or not, and does not undertake his defence as he would undertake his own – is no Theosophist.”
For her, those who actively help circulate slanders belong to a “different situation”, much worse.
