PADA: In sum, Rupanuga has never explained his idea: (a) Srila Prabhupada is no longer the current diksha guru, while (b) he supported that Kirtanananda IS the current diksha guru. Meaning, (c) Rupanuga has been exalting Kirtanananda to a post higher than Srila Prabhupada by saying KS is the current diksha guru and Srila Prabhupada is not.
By this type of over glorification of KS by people like Rupnauga, (d) We Prabhupada devotees were being banned, beat and assassinated. Thus (e) Rupanuga (and his ilk) were the persons creating the violent atmosphere in ISKCON by saying Kirtanananda is a diksha guru, i.e. KS is absorbing sins like Jesus.
Thus we dissenters are offending another Jesus by opposing KS. Rupanuga ilk thus created this atmosphere, it did not evolve from a vacuum. Also, (f) Most of us older devotees also knew that Kirtanananda was part of a homosexual household on Mott Street, and in the early days I and others heard him being called "Queer-tananda" around 1970. We all ALSO knew KS had opposed Srila Prabhupada by wanting devotees to dress in Western clothes etc. Thus, (g) Why did Rupanuga and his pals make this self-evidently flawed man into their next diksha guru, simultaneously, kicked Srila Prabhupada out of that position? No answer from Rupanuga since 1977, none, zilch, zip, nada. ys pd
