I never heard any figures of that nature only that he thought the vedic 
religion was, as he put it, the trunk of the tree and other religions were like 
branches off the trunk.

But Mike I'm not sure that Maharishi thought religion was so pure. I heard 
something along the lines of:Judaism expresses 75% of natural lawCatholicism 
expresses 50% of natural lawProtestantism expresses 25%Had you ever heard these 
figures?

Thanks for re-reading that Share. I'm not for for anybody condemning anyone 
about their personal lives. I was merely offering an explanation which may or 
may not be valid. < Yes ,I think M did believe that religions still have that 
power but I also believe he knew that religion is pure and our ability to 
understand the intent is according to our own individual capacity or level of 
evolution.

Sorry, Mike, yes, you did say suppression and I read enforcement. It's a hot 
topic for me. It sounded like you were in favor of religion, at the very least, 
condemning people if their sexuality is different than the supposed norm.

I wonder if Maharishi thought that contemporary religions really have any power 
to protect the evolution of souls.

I'm not really sure what Share was implying in that post. If it was that I 
believe it's open season on harassing people about their sexuality, then she's 
all wet as you would be also if that's what you thought. My comment was in 
regard to the role of religion in general, not how people practice it. People 
practice their religions according to their ability and understanding, which 
has the capacity to evolve as they do..
