And it is exactly because of David Pratt's article "The Theosophical Mahatmas - A Critique of Paul Johnson's New Myth" and other similar views I find the Theosophical Networks's moderation not allowing me (and others?) to criticize K. Paul Johnson's "theosophical" books quite unacceptable.
Anything else are allowed to be opposed, but his books of all books are not. K. Paul Johnson are on the contrary allowed to parade at the forum throwing nasty insinuations and muddled attacks after theosophists and theosophical teachings, while he claims to be what he calls a - theosophical author. And I tell you all at this forum: He is not!
As far as I am concerned: Such a moderation calling it self thesoophical and all are going down hill, unless they change their views. (Allowing the theosophists to be called -aggressive - and a cult and what not? And that without allowing anything to be said in opposition to it.) And that is saddening to me because I have for some years now held the moderators to be theosophical Seekers in good standing. I wonder what kind of compassion have led them to believe, that everyone is equal, but some are more equal than others?
I sometimes wish the old Lady HPB would be here some more and help us.
