Granger was a true believer

If my memory serves right, she had mentioned that she was part of the Hare Krishna cult as well...

I know a lot of true believers...the thing with them is that they NEED something to believe in ALL the time...whether its a religion or a leader or a philosophy. They are generally introduced to said leader/religion/ philosophy by a friend by a friend who seems more at ease in life than they are themselves. Once hooked they believe it is their moral duty to ignore any facts that cast their chosen belief in a bad light.

That said, you have often said that the DP community is like your family...and I would certainly never shut the door on family simply for something they believed...

Conversely...when Shishupal was born it was prophesied that he would be slain by his uncle Lord Krishna. His mother, in desperation went to Krishna for assurance and he took a vow that he would forgive even a thousand crimes of Shishupal...

Shishupal grew up to be a king and leader, but he always hated Krishna...once in a full court, he rose up and began abusing Krishna...he abused him for hours in front of the whole assembly and Ktishna took it all without flinching....but as soon as the 1000th oath had left Shishupal's lips, Krishna lifted his divine Chakra and it flew across the room taking Shishupal's head off...

The moral of the story is that you cannot save somebody from themself...
