Tally, Like or dislike of Russell is not the issue here
Jan, wellll, it's at least part of the issue... 'course we don't want to let our personal feelings get in the way.
(...adjusting my halo...)
From the transcript, we can clearly see there is no evidence that he claimed to know the greek language.
That is Yabsolutely KORRECT!... if you're referring to a f t e r Chuck Russell was caught in his lie.
If you assert otherwise, you are spreading a falsehood.
We titled the thread in question form.
"Did Chuck Russell commit perjury?"
It's up to the reader to provide the answer - in their own opinion.
We assert that Chuck Russell spread falsehoods - MANY falsehoods.
We called him a "Reeel Greek Scholar", not Real Greek Scholar.
Of course, we thought our sarkasm would be obvious.
"Reeel", like a fishing reel, attached to a rod, attached to a line, attached to a sinker, attached to a hook, attached to the bait that Kultleaders like Chuck Russell hope the faithful will chow down on, so that they can be "reeeled in"...
Uhhh, you also noticed the "NOT!" at the bottom of the image... ?
There is simply no evidence here that Russell committed perjury.
We, of course, beg to differ. There is ample "evidence" even in that short excerpt. Now, was Chucky ever "charged & convicted" of perjury?
Committing perjury and being charged and convicted or perjury are two different animals. As we understand it, there is a Very High Bar that needs to be hurdled to convict of perjury.
If you like, we could use some of the gentler synonyms for 'perjury':
We are comfortable with the 'L' word, however.
