Disastrous Social Relationships

Dear Devotees,

Please accept my most humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

I'm very touched but not surprised by this debate about discrimination regarding the intelligence of the sexes. I firmly believe that ISKCON's disastrous social relationships and consideration have and will always suffer to due to this type of mentality. I spent some years in the ISKCON Communication Leadership Team, and we worked hard trying to build public relations with society, academic institutions, churches, etc., but all our efforts were destroyed by issues like sex discrimination undertaken and debated in a very superficial manner, often utilizing the Vedic Scriptures out of context.

Now, more than ever, ISKCON must determine its true identity and establish a stable and mature internal line of conduct unless it intends to be considered an insignificant sect outside of any religious and philosophical context.

I normally don't enter into these polemics, but given the subject matter and the manner in which it is handled, I could not help myself.

Bhakta Fabio
