Did you take Dal's statement personally? And, is your statement an even more 
emotional level argument (if his was so) to defend your own membership in a 
"temporal organization"? 

In any case, why would Dal have to use an emotional level statement to 
convince anyone of what the Masters, Buddha, Krishna, Christ, et al, 
demonstrated or implied that they believed? Isn't that what theosophy 
teaches fundamentally -- to detach oneself from the forms of this world -- be 
"in the world and not of the world," so to speak? 

So, why don't you discuss the truth of the statement or ask a question of you 
disagree rather than pick on the author's means of saying it? That's not 
very wise from a theosophical point of view. But, does that make you an 
idiot? I'm sure we all know a lot of very intelligent but not so wise people. 
Does that make them idiots?
