I'm sorry, Tony, but I disagree with your interpretation and think
distinctions like that (whether you want to call it "discrimination" or
not) can lead to a whole lot of other kinds of more nefarious
"discrimination," like racism, sexism and fanaticism. I just don't
believe that you have the only handle on what is or isn't "spiritually
pristine." If it works for you, great. But it doesn't for me. Love and
acceptance in the heart is the "pristine purity" I acknowledge.
I believe that people who disdain the lower principles create all kinds
of unhealthy problems for themselves by setting up unnecessary and
rejective inner conflicts. I opt for acceptance and an understanding
that does not shun away from them. It's my personal choice. But it
doesn't have to be yours.
