Judge For Yourself -KGBG p.114
We have been asked to review all the hearsay, revisions of what can be heard in whispers, jump-to-conclusions hair studies, coincidental health timelines, 249 pages of character assassinations, insufficient medical diagnosis, questionable qualified expert opinions, allegations from false witness, translation disputes, retracted assertions, suspicions about the Bhaktivedanta Tape Ministry, voice stress analysis, disappearing testimonies, private studies, horoscopes, ominous dreams, voices speaking backwards and pages upon pages of every possible grievance that can possibly be dredged up to see which version of spaghetti-like logic sticks to the wall of public outcry. This paper is the outcome of how I perceive all this Chicken Little hysteria and I will not be lured into the fox’s den of this most odious type of Vaishnava aparada that is being bantered around like fictional soap-opera gossip among spoiled housewives across America.
I can only imagine what type of a hailstorm I might be inviting down on my head by taking the time to compile this poison antidote. Why would I go to all this trouble, knowing that in due course, as a result of doing so I expect to find every possible shortcoming the Sleuth-Team mud-rackers can dig up about me to broadcast over the internet in the future? The answer to that was provided at the beginning of this paper:
“There is no doubt that these men (Tamal, etc.) still had a lot to learn about diplomacy, patience, humility and true leadership. They were not perfected human beings… but they also most certainly were not killers!”
