The great soul? Ghandi was a man.

I'm not posting this to 'bash' Ghandi. In fact, reading this piece was personally disturbing. I'd never heard these things before, and even now tend to doubt the evidence. One thing is certain, we idolize people. Idolatry causes us to cover up scars and wipe warts away by self-imposed blindness. Its hard to hear that perhaps they were not so worthy of our worship.

One a related note, people who see Ghandi, Jesus, and any other nice religious teacher in a cathcall category have a bit more investigation to do. There are profound differences.
