I couldn't agree more. In the mundane/modern world, we would be  
outraged if an organization of any kind attempted to suppress reality.  
We'd scream "cover-up!" loud and long about any organization that had  
things happen (as always happens whenever a group forms), then hushed  
them up to maintain its reputation. To silence this article -- whether  
by threatening the young lady, her father, or the source of  
publication -- doesn't actually silence the facts, it only paints us  
as hypocrites. I'm very interested to know which higher-ups are doing  
the threatening, so that I can be sure not to give any allegiance to  
them, tacitly or otherwise, until they have realized their error and  
made apology to the girl and to her father.
