“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. 
Regards, Carlos.
