Why would you say that Pedro? As you know Christianity or more to the point the RCC has exploited and ritualised pagan symbols to their own advantage - I think HPB called it a new nose on an old face - at least they could give credit where it is due - HPB simply pointed out that there is nothing new in catholic doctrine to me suggesting that the RCC is at best hypocritical -Âwhy is there a need to continually justify catholicism?Â

Why not burn them in public places, with sufficient notice given to 
those interested to attend? As a matter of fact, why stop at 
Leadbeater's books? Why not include Besant's, Arundale's, 
Jinarajadasa' s, Sri Ram's, Taimni's and perhaps many others?

In view of the statemts included in it, such as the ones below, 
should not "The Secret Doctrine" be also considered as a book whose 
sale may not be allowed to go on?

"The Aryan views of the symbolism were those of the whole Pagan 
world; the Semite interpretations emanated from, and were pre-
eminently those of a small tribe, thus marking its national features 
and the idiosyncratic defects that characterize many of the Jews to 
this day â gross realism, selfishness, and sensuality. They had made 
a bargain, through their father Jacob, with their tribal deity, self-
exalted above all others, and a covenant that his "seed shall be as 
the dust of the earth"; and that deity could have no better image 
henceforth than that of the symbol of generation, and, as 
representation, a number and numbers." (SD, vol. II, p. 470)

"But Phallic worship has developed only with the gradual loss of the 
keys to the inner meaning of religious symbols; and there was a day 
when the Israelites had beliefs as pure as the Aryans have. But now 
Judaism, built solely on Phallic worship, has become one of the 
latest creeds in Asia, and theologically a religion of hate and 
malice toward everyone and everything outside themselves. Philo 
JudÃus shows what was the genuine Hebrew faith. The sacred Writings, 
he says, prescribe what we ought to do . . . commanding us to hate 
the heathen and their laws and institutions. They did hate Baal or 
Bacchus worship publicly, but left its worst features to be followed 
secretly; and it is with the Talmudic Jews that the grand symbols of 
nature were the most profaned. With them, as now shown by the 
discovery of the key to the correct Bible reading â Geometry, the 
fifth divine Science ("fifth" â because it is the fifth key in the 
series of the Seven Keys to the Universal esoteric language and 
symbology) was desecrated, and by them applied to conceal the most 
terrestrial and grossly sexual mysteries, wherein both Deity and 
religion were degraded." (SD, vol. II, p. 471)

On the other hand, an easier solution would be to allow people the 
freedom to choose what they want to read and study. Alas, this has 
always been the most difficult path to follow, particularly for those 
bred and born with the nourishment of the received truth.
