Robert ZinkRobert Zink last week wrote another long blog full of misrepresentations, unsupported allegations, and outright lies about the HOGD/AO and myself. In this new blog, entitled "Beyond Name calling and the Golden Dawn," Robert Zink wrote:"Now recently David Griffin of the A.O. (Alpha et Omega, Rosicrucian Order etc) (Not to be confused with the A.O. under the lineage of MacGregor Mathers) has been throwing more spaghetti up against the wall, which is directed at myself and the body of adepts in the Esoteric Order of the Golden Dawn."There is no need even to address again Robert Zink's same unsupported allegations about the lineages held by our order, the HOGD/AO. Bob Zink has floated these same misrepresentations on a regular basis... So often, in fact, that the interested reader need merely refer to the trademark and lineage pages on our website to get actual, factual information.
Robert Zink's ex-wife, Sonya Neiman Zink, is nothing less than the Mother of the order today known as the Esoteric Order of the Golden Dawn, even though she has never been given the credit she is due. Sonya Zink wanted to stick to the classical Golden Dawn. She therefore opposed Robert Zink's schemes and abuse of th e Golden Dawn. For this loyalty to the traditiona Golden Dawn, Sonya Zink ended ended up a divorced wife, and excommunicated from the order she co-founded.

Sonya Zink recently let the cat out of the bag about how she and Robert REALLY co-founded their order - originally called the Eternal Circle of Light - now doing business as the Esoteric Order of the Golden Dawn. First off, according to Sonya Zink, SHE AND ROBERT WERE NEVER THEMSELVES INITIATED INTO ANY GRADE OF THE GOLDEN DAWN AND ROBERT ZINK IS STILL (NOT EVEN TODAY) A GOLDEN DAWN INITIATE.
For years, Robert Zink spread rumors about some mysterious "Mentor" he claims came from a former American temple of the Rosicrucian Order of Alpha et Omega. According to Sonya Zink, this is a total fabrication made up for faked credibililty. ACCORDING TO SONYA, SHE AND ROBERT FOUNDED THEIR GOLDEN DAWN ORDER USING ONLY TWO SOURCES: ISRAEL REGARDIE'S GOLDEN DAWN BOOK - AND A OUIJA BOARD!
In other words, ROBERT ZINK HAS NO GOLDEN DAWN LINEAGE WHATSOEVER AND IS NOT EVEN REALLY A GOLDEN DAWN INITIATE. This is the true reason why Robert Zink so frequently attacks the substantial Golden Dawn, Hermetic, and Rosicrucian lineages held by the HOGD/AO, even though he never provides any evidence at all supporting his wild proclamations.
In his new blog, Robert Zink now claims I am somehow attacking "the body of adepts in the Esoteric Order of the Golden Dawn." Nothing could be farther from the truth. One bad apple does not spoil the barrel. EOGD Adepts and Initiates are, by and large, hard working people that are extremely dedicated to the Golden Dawn system. It is certainly not their fault, they are being lied to and misled by Robert Zink. In truth, I do not criticize the Adepti or Initiates of the EOGD at all - but only the terrible way that Robert Zink has been misleading and exploiting them.
I certainly never said that the EOGD is "nothing but New Age rubbish" as Robert Zink has falsely and repeatedly alleged. What I actually HAVE said is that Robert Zink EXPLOITS the good members of the EOGD by trying to sell them Psychic Readings, CD Seminars, Teleseminars, Miracle Mentoring, "Goldfire" groups, 24 Strand DNA Activations, and any other money scam he can think of. All of this is thoroughly documented in Robert Zink's own words, in letters to his order republished in comments on my blog here.
Again, I really do not mind if Robert Zink wants to become the Tony Robbins of the Golden Dawn. That is his own business. Heck, I don't mind even Robert Zink taking his Golden Dawn order in a decidedly New Age direction.
What I do object to is all of this FLIM-FLAM. All of these confidence schemes have NOTHING to do with the traditional, classical Golden Dawn. And there is no other Golden Dawn leader or order anywhere that is hawking such schemes either. Not only is Robert Zink exploiting EOGD members. He is giving the entire Golden Dawn tradition a bad name with all of these scams.
There are far too many people in the greater esoteric community who already, primarily because of Robert Zink's scamming, have sadly come to believe that the ENTIRE Golden Dawn tradition is nothing but a commercial money scheme. On his Miracle Mentoring website, Robert Zink recently wrote:YOU CAN LEARN THE SECRETS OF INNER ALCHEMY TO BEGIN TURNING ANY AREA OF YOUR LIFE FROM LEAD TO GOLD. THE RESULTS ARE INCREDIBLE FOR THE SINCERE SEEKER OF ALCHEMICAL TRANSFORMATION WHO CRAVES A LIFE FILLED WITH MIRACLES... o BUILD A PROFITABLE BUSINESS o BECOME A MILLIONAIREWHAT? BECOME A MILLIONAIRE WITH INNER ALCHEMY?! IN OTHER WORDS, ROBERT ZINK IS CLAIMING THAT THE GOLDEN DAWN IS PRIMARILY MOTIVATED BY HOW TO......GET RICH QUICK!
Is it any wonder that people are starting to believe that the entire Golden Dawn tradition is nothing but one big money scam?
Robert Zink accuses me of "name calling," I admit I gave Robert the nickname "Sideshow Bob" after Bob's own letters proved how he threatened EOGD members with expulsion unless they "block" spammed me to get my Facebook account cancelled, also evidenced in Robert Zink's own letters written to his order.
"Sideshow Bob" Zink
On the other hand, however, when an anonymous commenter on my blog suggested that Robert Zink's trying to control the social networks of EOGD members is tantamount to "cult-leader-like" behavior, I actually defended Mr. Zink, because I do not support the word "cult" associated with the Golden Dawn in any way. My defending Robert Zink from this "Cult Leader" monniker resulted in my being chided not only by Morgan Drake Eckstein but even by Donald Michael Kraig, who wrote on his Llewellyn blog:"There are lots of groups that claim to be...the Golden Dawn. I know of one where the leader used supposed spiritual concepts to justify his sexual abuse of a minor."Don Kraig here refers to the incident when Robert Zink impregnated the underaged child of one of his EOGD (then HOMSI) order members. When HOMSI/EOGD leaders denied this allegation, the victim's Mother broke her silence and set the record straight, as follows:Posted by Rita P., 2002.07.28 03:51 R. (The victim) was only 16 when her relationship with Robert began. Let me set that straight. And if you want to contest her mother, go right ahead. I did not give Robert any consent to sleep with my daughter. He just took it on himself. Robert did a Bowl of Desire on R. so he could take her -- she was still attending Rosary High School. So it was not okay. She had to drop out of high school because of the pregnancy, and to this day has never been allowed to finish her schooling. RitaWhen the Mother was accused by HOMSI/EOGD leaders of lying about the sexual abuse of her underaged daughter by EOGD leader, Robert Zink, she reluctantly published the birth certificate of the child Zink had sired during one of the assaults on her daughter - as incontrovertible proof!
Both the HOGD/AO and I remain firmly committed to harmony in the Golden Dawn community. This, however, does not mean that I approve of Robert Zink's confidence schemes. It also does not mean that Robert Zink's history of sexual abuse of minors should simply be swept under the carpet either.
So, Robert Zink, I agree that the Golden Dawn community needs to move beyond name calling. Instead of simply pointing fingers at me, however, how about instead finally beginning to...... CLEAN UP YOUR ACT...- ONCE AND FOR ALL?!?!
