Sacred? SACRED? To use a term which in *today's* world dimisses half of
the world's population by, in effect, calling them "brothers" when they
are in fact sisters? It is *impossible to form a "brotherhood" ...
"Without distinction of ... sex." In today's language the beginning of
the first object is hardly "sacred" - it is plain nonsense which I and
many others REJECT as expressing anything spiritual, and certainly not
the spirit of theosophy.
Are you willing to join a Society whose first object is to form a
nucleus of the sisterhood of humanity?
Or would that not be sacred?
