I suppose one *can* - but it don't make us look good, do it? OTOH, if
one's perception of this or that leader of any TS is that he or she is
an umnitigated asshole, what is one supposed (theosophically) to do,
when we proclaim that there is no religion higher than truth - a
statement I am coming to perceive increasingly as plain daft.  Pilate
was no fool when has asked, "What is truth?"

I agree on both points.  However, it must be observed - correction, is
may be useful to observe (don't want to issue imperatives) that insider
stone-throwing seems endemic to organisations per se.
