Re: About the Easter Bunny
- Hi, Kaye!
I threw away my copies of the eck parables, so this is fun seeing
the nonsense again! It is interesting how Klemp made the child the
wiser one in the story, above the parents. It kind of goes along
with the book of Richard Maybury's "Whatever Happened to Justice"
that Klemp also promotes. In the beginning of Maybury's book, he
cautions the young reader that most parents, adults, teachers, etc.
will not be as knowing as he (Maybury) is with his material. It
seems the undermining of those who individuals have reguarded as
knowledgeable and trustworthy is a first step toward
capturing/entrapping individuals into the mindset and control of any
cult, including eckankar. It is a primary technique of trickery.
Yes, we all know eventually that the Easter Bunny and Santa Claus
are made up--but they are for fun and enjoyment at a time when
children are still innocent and into fantasy! These myths relate
to the fakery of religions, in that they have co-existed with
religious celebrations. I don't think they have to be debunked
(Easter Bunny and Santa Claus). There is no need to feel guilt that
we were "duped" as children because we had fun with these myths. It
is an entirely different field as far as I am concerned, and it
annoys me that Klemp uses such stories to advance his fraud!
