I don't know where the anti-gay sentiment in the movement came from. I never thought it came from MMY but I don't know. There were several very obviously gay men on my ttc many many years ago, they would wear tuxedos and one of the guys walked in a very very obvious way. However, I don't know if, in Maharishi's world, he had enough experience to know (this was 1971) about this gay thing.
I had some a friend who was about half way through his Masters degree at MIU who got kicked off the program and off campus when someone made it a point to let the administration know he was gay. This was in the late 70s. -- In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, "sparaig" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: > > --- In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, "anonyff" <anonyff@> wrote: > > > > --- In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, "lurkernomore20002000" > > <steve.sundur@> wrote: > > > > > > Bobby Roth is a walking advertisment.
