..he is clamping down his orthodoxy even tighter on the next sprouts and making sure people are intermarrying into the group. Sociologically, you see this survival mechanism evolve with many religious groups (e.g., Amish and Persian Jews). They increasingly become isolationist. This also is not bad in itself and necessary at times to preserve the traditions. In CB’s case it is more likely to conceal illegal and immoral operations.
And how! Just like Tusta getting married to Jagganatha dasi (Jackie Crisfield) so that he could avoid immigration laws. Siddha treats single devotees like commodities summoning them over to Hawaii on devotional service and then arranging marriages to local followers - instant dual citizenship. Two of the VD kids are married to Australians, and Tulsi is married to the big man Tamayo's son in the Phillipines. It is difficult to imagine how these peope would even meet let alone all in love and get married - oh wait there is no such thing as love - I forgot :roll:
In Queensland there is already 'joking' (?) about whose 5 year old son will marry whose 4 year old daughter. All they have to do is get marriages between the three pertinent families, Crisfield, Hansen and Doyle and they will all be related. Within a couple of generations at the rate they are going the inbreeding will be so well established that there may well be a kid born with blue skin or four arms and they will be able to proclaim it to be the next incarnation of Krishna.
The great husband shortage is a great way to keep the women in line and let's face it more women is more children/soldiers for Siddha there is no need for even half as many men (which they don't have) Is it really possible for the number of followers of any group to be so disproportionate? Certainly it could just be an unlucky co-incidence. The majority of followers here are overwhelmingly women but the majority of ex-followers I have met are overwhelmigly men. I doubt there would be a single woman on the Gold Coast that would not fill every body cavity they have with some grade A substance and board a plane to the Phillipines or New Zealand to win the husband lottery. The truth is that if one plays their cards right they too could be sunning themselves on the beach of Hawaii.
I have heard that SOI specifically targets other Krishna cults in the area. There is a loose communal network for a GV sect not far from there and a grouping of Baba followers as well as miscellaneous hippies which is just how Queensland is. If this is true (I will try to check it out next time I have to go up there) then they would get a disproportionate number of women since the trend seems to be in SOI and ISKCON as well for the bramacharis to sleep with them and then dismiss them as 'sluts' not good enough to marry - unless of course they get them pregnant and then they
pretty much have to being such moral guys and all :roll:
