Editor,

Religious scholar Gordon Melton has identified about 2,500 different religious or faith community groups in the United States, about half of which are “nonconventional.”

That makes this country one of the most spiritually diverse countries in the world and throughout history. But some people are threatened by diversity. They use the word “cult” for any group they deem to be unacceptable from their point of belief. The C-word is a four-letter word for any belief someone doesn’t like.

Virginia Coverdale and David McCarthy have used the word “cult” to stigmatize Ramtha’s School of Enlightenment, encourage discrimination against me, and to scare people away from associating with RSE. They uploaded edited videos to YouTube and elsewhere in order to portray RSE as something it is not. If you don’t like the satire of Jon Stewart or Stephen Colbert, you would not understand Ramtha’s satire either.

Sociologists Douglas Cowan and David Bromley have stated that the word “cult” is a convenient shorthand for a group of people in order to present them as dangerous in the media and that the use of the word carries an unrelentingly negative connotation.

Catherine Wessinger, a professor of religious studies at Loyola University in New Orleans, has written that the C-word is just as derogatory as slurs about people of color, women or homosexuals. Now who is the bigot?

I am not Ramtha. Ramtha is not political. I am. If you cannot accept that a consciousness or a spirit is different than the body it occupies, if you are not interested in the implications of reincarnation, if you don’t believe in strong women having a role and a voice in the political process, then you will probably vote Republican anyhow.

Modern-day, right-wing extremists may not wear hooded robes or burn crosses, but their vigilante activities continue. The history of the human rights movement shows that eventually justice is served against vigilantes who try to skirt the rule of law upon that this country was founded.

So let me get this straight.

You are asserting that Steven Colbert and Jon Stewart urinate in their pants while onstage and vomit on the audience?

Oh, and Judy.....I do not think that what you think the 'c-word' means is what it means to the rest of us.

Greatly precised and stated, no doubt that justice always have been served to "Vigilantes"

Ramtha not political ? So its you on stage stating solidarety with the middel east ? Ramtha rules like a tyrant choping off the heads of his enemies. Is that not beeing political ? Again just give the videos out unedited .

Then what word would you use to describe Heaven's Gate? (Check date March 26, 1997)

Nothing ever happens without good cause. Not long after writing my above note I happened upon this and several other articles about a religious group given the label "cult". Maybe someone should contact various publications who mention Ombatse to inform them of their errant ways. http://nigeriavillagesquare.com/forum/main-square/76873-ombatse-ritual-cult-joins-nigeria-terror-awuf-30-police-killed-burned.html For more information Google "we are a prayer group – Ombatse cult"

so you might be able to explain how the remarks: mexicans breed like rabbits and they are not worth a conchies thought. ad up to loving tolerant teaching?
yes i read the statements they are all positive and have similar sound to it. jzs "teachings"?

Not participated in the stream. So you dont know what you are talking about. Living in denial does not mean it never happened or happened like a 35 000 year old spirit tells you.

EducatedOpinion

Left wing, right wing, whatever.
Edited video or raw video. Who cares?
You are a phony.
You take (second and kinder choice of word) money from people desperate for The Answer.

RSE is a cult by definition-
"A small religious group that is not part of a larger and more accepted religion and that has beliefs regarded by many people as extreme or dangerous." (Merriam-Webster)

Don't even get me started with the quantum physics...

Would you please leave Yelm? Oh, and take that 36,000 year old weirdo with you.

Well "Educated Opinion" whatever your view, thinking or judge about JZ, Ramtha and/or RSE staff and students, it is not my business. I am speaking out from my own personal experience, I am not left wing, nor right wing, I did not judged the video as edited or not, it was a Court of Law in your country, so it seems someone took care about.

I am not a phony, as I have never expressed that about you or any other of your colleagues in this vendetta, republicans or former RSE students. I did not take anything from you nor from any "desperate people looking for any "The Answer", which only you know what it means.

RSE could be anything for You to judge, as You have the free will to subjectively make any statement about your own experiences. You may want to "don't even get started with the quantum physics..." because in that field you may want to surprisingly discover that truth is relative to personal experience and observation, for each participant at any plane, realm or reality, as You wish, so under that principle you may want to refuse, it is very difficult to impose any personal view or truth to others as absolute, as you may want to corroborate with the following compilation of scientific sources that JZ used for her teaching presentation last Thursday, February 27, 2014, at Mexico venue for Ramtha's Divne Jazz, that contains several references to the most advance quantum physicist, courtesy of RSE which posted it on their RSE-Newsletter website avialable for the public worldwide:

And for You to rest, fourtunately or unfortunately, I am residing at Mexico since I arrived to this plane of demostration, so I do not would leave Yelm for now, unless I first move there someday and maybe understand after my own experince there that would be better to keep my distance from people like you, or discover that moving me there in a parallel reality that surely does not include some people like you, that may keep expressing so much anger (perhaps is the right word, if not tell me you what inner feeling move you) against JZ, Ramtha and RSE, life is as enjoyable than here where I reside now.

About taking Ramtha with me, it would be my honor, but He surely has his own plan and I have my own. I just hope You have your own too. Keep having a fantastic spring season, full of whatever you be able to manifest. By the way, at least I have the honorability to sign with my name specifing my country of residence in all post I made in this service, perhaps the public may take serious something from You when you start signing with yours, as You are probably well known and respectable people in Yelm, WA., so why You hide your identity? At least be the men or the woman you have been called to be in this plane and show some of that by signing with your name and/or last name, so "Educated" person.

Did you participate in the livestreming ? Or are you just a follower who writes what jz wants ? Glad you reach out into ouer paralell universe were we judge and take positions for whats right and wrong. Why are you not offened by the remarks of your teacher ? Please answer my question which i asked you earlier or did only the above post resonate with your frequency ?

JA

I am not a follower, as no follower I decided to not participate in many streams during the last 4 years, and I do not write anything others want, perhaps you are mirroring yourself in this point. More glad than You to reach out into a parallel reality where You are not present, as this my little town in Mexico, where I live. I just do not feel anything by the remarks of Ramtha so I am not offended. You do not resonate with my frecuency only what I said before resonates with my frecuency.

Hmmm, word must have gotten around that if you write the kind of letter JZ likes, she will give out free audiences with ramtha! I think you might have shown more credibility if it wasn't the hoodwinked and the employees writing your letters!

roberta
