And I simply disagreed with you. Human rights are everyone's rights.
Theosophy is terribly hurt by this; it could only be hurt worse by
appearing complacent toward it. As the law is completely at odds with the
three objects of the Society (not to mention the Russian Constitution and
the Universal Declaration of Human Rights), I expect we will be hearing
very loud protests from the Theosophical leadership. Any day now.
