Yes, I really don't see the legal harm in expressing comments about
any religion or "business group" out here on the web. If they can't
take the scrutiny and observations from without and within then they
should get out of the con/cult/crutch business. The freedom of
expression is one of the greatest factors and heritage of this
country. However, this freedom hasn't always been as great (due to a
lack of consciousness) or even shared to the degree as it is today (by
the average person) with the advent of the Internet.
I'll have to put some Eckie stuff on next week... been really busy
lately. Anyway, Harold (the mahanta ;-( yeah.. right!) is always good
for a belly laugh of the 14th level (or beyond!).

> The site's author removed "eckankar" from the site "just in case",
and will probably put it back after double-checking various issues
with an attorney. He hasn't received any official objections or
comments from MN, and in this case I'm sure he wouldn't, since he's
just reporting facts from public documents. E-kult is just a small
part of the Helen Frye story, although a very important and sad part,
and he's more interested in the rest of her life and accomplishments.
He's received complaints from eckists but no threats or anything.
> For those who are interested, there's more info in the links & files
over at ET, and I'm pretty sure there's a lot of scanned "Darwin"
material at one of Ford Johnson's websites.
> Great group!! Thanks for starting it, Prometheus, I'm really
enjoying all the conversation and information here!
