Matthew trashing every “spiritual” teacher in some way in order to discredit and rightfully so, Gafni, doesn’t make a strong case for your integrity. To accuse dead “gurus” having been sexual predators is beyond the pale.
I lived in Woodstock and sat with many teachers including the man I consider to be one of the finest teachers living today:Norman Fischer. But never once did any loshen hora leave their lips about anyone accused by rumors rather than by direct accusations.
Sadly your points about Gafni whom I also knew and sat with in the States and Israel gets lost in your rant.
