I learned of this through the newsletter of the SPLC (Southern Poverty Law
Center) - I've not a copy of a court transcript or anything.  Would you like
the address (snail or e-mail) of the Center?  I can send it to you and other
info I have via private e-mail correspondence - totally up to you.

This really doesn't make sense - and either way, C.U.T. would somehow have
assumed that such a "survivalist" situation would occur.  Rightwingers could
come in and take MY food should such a thing happen - but I'm not
stockpiling guns due to such a risk.  I fail to see the logic of C.U.T. there.

Again, this is also happening to churches with predominately black members
and they have not found it necessary to break the law nor become a
military-like encampment.

This rationale gives everyone the OK to pack some massive amounts of "heat."

Ah, yes!  The "mutual-destruction" theory!  If America has atomic bombs, the
Soviet Union is entitled to them, also.  We see where that's led. . ..

I am always tickled, and, at the same time terrified, that those who quote
the amendment fail to notice the amendment is referring to a "well-regulated

Well, to be honest, I'm not sure I want to bring the Theosophical message to
the "masses" even before any bombs drop - especially after reading your post.

I think this is pure ca-ca talk.  And I am dismayed that the people on this
list who claim the existence of the "Masters" would remain silent after
reading such words. . .unless they, too, think that "Masters" being involved
in the killing and destruction of other humans and nations is an acceptable

"Masters" directing revolutions and such - well, with the "compassion"
clause so dominant in Theosophy, I guess one has to say that the "Masters"
were simply involved in. . .mercy killing?
