Grow Up and Take Your Medicine (07/17/10)
Everything is vaiṣṇava-aparādha because you say so, and because your friends say so. But when you push the issue, there are many Vaiṣṇavas in the world that would say the same about you and yours. So who is right and who is wrong?
You have no śāstra or Vaiṣṇava authority for the idea that Śukadeva was the pet parrot of Rādhā, other than _____ Mahārāja saying that he was. So anyone who doubts this or challenges this becomes, or is an aparādhi in your eyes. Your vision smacks of the typical view of Christians who cannot accept that they might be wrong, or that Jesus isn’t as perfect as he is made out to be.
You people are disgustingly neophyte and arrogant. If standing up for truth means being an aparādhi then I am happy to be one. There is better association in Hell than what you have to offer.
So either grow up and take your medicine or send me the quote to support your position. All you are doing is name-calling and conjecturing with no facts, no śāstra – only hyperbole. If you have no quote then simply say so. It’s not such a shameful thing to admit you and yours are wrong.
When ____ Mahārāja publicly apologizes for his age-old offense to Śrīla Śrīdhara Mahārāja then I might think of doing the same to you and yours. But seeing that that isn’t going to happen anytime soon I remain in my position.
