   On rethinking based on your post, the two women should have gone ahead
and told the world that they are Theosophists and waited for reaction from
fundamentalists. Issues of this nature is worth fighting for and the media
and ACLU and other organizations would join in the fight for the shelter. If
it had taken place in San Antonio, I would have given my full support in
pursuing this course of action.
