Let it first be understood that LAShTAL.COM is non-partisan and impartial. However, INANNA93, a member of this site, has submitted this as a News item. There are clearly some fairly major developments in progress in the OTO and it would be entirely inappropriate for me to ignore them here. I have, after all, mentioned them in a comment to another News post.
I therefore thank INANNA93 for the News submission and present it here without further editorial comment…
We, the undersigned Sovereign Grand Inspectors General of United States Grand Lodge, Ordo Templi Orientis, hereby declare our unequivocal support for the Grand Master Sabazius… Declaration of Support for the Grand Master Sabazius
Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.
We, the undersigned Sovereign Grand Inspectors General of United States Grand Lodge, Ordo Templi Orientis, hereby declare our unequivocal support for the Grand Master Sabazius, and for his recent actions in response to the behavior of some members of our Order. While we value honest dissent, no organization should be expected to retain within its ranks those who, despite their sacred pledges to the contrary, do not recognize, respect, or intend to cooperate with the organization’s leadership; fail to address their grievances in a civil and fraternal manner through the appropriate official channels; or refuse to abide by the decisions of its duly constituted governing and administrative bodies.
We are confident that the issues surrounding the recent sad events will be resolved shortly, and hope that no further measures will be required at this time to ensure the health and well-being of the Order. We are united in our resolve to carry out both the spirit and the letter of our Sacred Oaths, and to defend our Grand Master and our Holy Order.
Love is the law, love under will.
Signed this day of Venus, Sol 12° Leo, Luna 10° Sagittarius, Anno IVxiv (August 4 2006 e.v.)
