Semantic deception

Post02 Apr 2016

Just a short post about a term I discover the other day.
Semantic deception ... redefining terms to get agreement without understanding.

I thought it define the typical Brahma Kumari strategy in dealing with outsiders, especially those in New Age or inter-faith enviroments.

For example, using vague terms like "The Light .. The One ... The Father" for what they have exceptionally specific and unique definitions relating to their god spirit, thereby passing it off as other religions' God and garnering their support.

I think a lot of people are conned into thinking the BKs are reasonable and supporting them by such a "yukti" (method/strategy).

Individuals who if they knew what the BKs really believed would drop them like a hot stone.
