Assume we had a family doctor that we had seen all our lives, perhaps he had been the doctor for your extended family too. He is lovely man, very kind and honest hearted.
But if he had prescribed treatment or medication that was wrong, and had bad effects on you, then changed the medication to something else, then randomly changed it again etc, how would you feel?
If you did some research into him, and found disturbing facts and things in his history that made you question his qualifications, how would you feel? If he excused those issues or blamed YOU for researching beyond his word, how would you feel?
If you questioned his treatment, and he reacted by harshly saying "I AM THE DR, just do as I say", and threatened to maligned your name and slander your reputation amongst your friends and community if you spoke out about him, how would you feel?
Yet spiritually, the society has had a history of mistakes that they have tried to cover up. They alone claim to be the only "spiritual doctors" for our faith. They react harshly if anything is questioned. They blame individuals who don't tow the line.
