Not this old chestnut again.  Ramanujas views on vedadhikara are exactly 
the same as Shankaracharya and Ravi Chandrashekhara.  This came up before 
in the megathread and I posted a link to his exact words.
See http://www.sacred-texts.com/hin/sbe48/sbe48131.htm and onwards.

Sometimes.  But not this time.  It takes willful ignorance to 
misunderstand what the shastras are saying on this topic.

To me this is the real scandal.  Not that other people are interested in
