What about Jesus Christ and the 3 sanyasis? General versus new specific rules. After all, the Bible says about Jesus:
The Son has the divine power to give life and to judge (John 5:21–26; John 6:40; John 8:16; John 17:2). Through his death, resurrection, and ascension the Son is glorified by the Father (John 17:1–24), but it is not a glory that is thereby essentially enhanced.
And what about Guru Nanak?
And the God who appeared before him was not like the Hindus said and not like the Muslims said ...
What about the Bhagavad Gita where Krishna says that when the moral principles fall, he comes personally or in A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami's commentary writes about God sons or prophets as far as I can remember.
Each sect emphasizes the exclusivity of salvation through its own institution and organization. Classic move.
SIF / SoI too - the only pure devotee is Chris Butler. Meanwhile A.C.Bhaktivedanta Swami (Parampara!) Wrote:
Regarding Siddhaswarupananda, these things which you have heard are simply rumor and there is no substance. Siddhaswarupa does not want to take disciples, neither he should have disciples while I am alive. That is the process. I have never said that Siddhasvarupa is a pure devotee.* That is simply concoction. Now I am going to India in few weeks and I shall stop at Hawaii and take Siddhaswarupananda to India for training him up properly.
Hoping this meets you in good health,
Your ever well-wisher,
A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami

They actually have a big influence on you because you care. It is obvious that you will be labeled as offensive, unclean, and so on in the cult.
But their schematic responses to objective evidence, statements, or quotations from the scriptures refuting the unwritten doctrine of SIF / SoI's "uniqueness and exclusivity" are in themselves proof that they have the problem. A big problem.

Living at home in thin foil? No. Tons of disciples who burn through millions of dollars? No. 20 chefs with 25 dishes that are no better than eating from a Chinese restaurant? My God...
