Shiva Prabhu, you stated in your posting of November 6, 2003:

"...clearly the authority of the GBC has to be used."

Herein lies the problem. The authority of the GBC is being used...used to protect the abusers, and to cover up their crimes against Srila Prabhupda's children.

Otherwise, why do you think that this ongoing problem has gone on for so long?

If these so-called leaders had the courage to do anything, they'd turn over their precious power to Manu and the Gurukulis, and go open temples - they'd at least try to please Srila Prabhupada.
