My views are:
I find your intentions to be good.
But, the view you are offering are not theosophical teaching.
So I will have to disagree with your ideas. I would rather recommend, that the members at this place learn to control their emotions. Individuals and ideas are all part of our life. Everything is ParaBrahman.
"He who objects to having his views controverted and criticized must not write for Lucifer. " ..."Moreover, we have given good proofs of our impartiality. We published articles and letters criticizing not alone our personal theosophical and philosophical views, but discussing on subjects directly concerned with our personal honour and reputation; reviving the infamous calumnies in which not simple doubts, but distinctly formulated charges of dishonesty were cast into our teeth and our private character was torn to shreds (Vide "A Glance at Theosophy from the Outside", Lucifer for October, 1888). And if the editor will never shrink from what she considers her duty to her readers, and that she is prepared to throw every possible light upon mooted questions in order that truth should shine bright and hideous lies and superstitions be shown under their true colours - why should our contributors prove themselves so thin-skinned?"
( IS DENUNCIATION A DUTY? by H. P. Blavatsky - Lucifer Magazine 1888)
I do also know, that some persons are not fond of all what H. P. Blavatsky did and said.
If you find H. P. Blavatsky's above views irrelevant to use at Theos-talk I would like to know why.
Do you have any ideas?
