the claim is that new religious movements and growth of religious movements requires conservative orthodoxy.

but this is correlation of a larger cultural issue; the growth of the specific segment of radically conservative evangelical christianity is in response to something, not spontaneously and independently from nothing.

the churches that are growing are the conservative megachurches.

is that really the model that a thelemite should model their efforts after?

these same are quite willing to refuse to the popularity of wicca and the money of scientology because it would be to be not distinct; and yet they lust after the conservative orthodoxy of a megachurch because they wish to model themselves after that for the purpose of expansion?

like hutton's point, it's the work that creates continuity. not an artificial crusade, but rather the ritual work itself. a crusade to crush thought and word is such lame paranoia and violates the prime directive
