The TS has no official position on anything as a matter of policy, but the
general consensus is that Creme is a crook, his Maitreya a fraud and the
followers thereof total idiots.
Now that doesn't mean that somewhere in the the society there are not a few
people who take this crap seriously because we have people who believe in a
lot more than two ridiculous things at the same time. But I have never heard
of Creme and his false Maitreya (who apparently dwells in the sewers of London
and miraculously appears to soccer fans just after they riot) spoken of by
anyone in the TS except in the strongest terms of derision and ridicule.
Which both richly deserve.
