    Patrick,

    You've got that nonsense-character stuff corrupting your posts to the group again (see below for a sample). Please find another way to post your messages so that they won't be so hard to read.

    In Christ's service,
    Rob Bowman

It seems that you take issue with Trinitarians doing things along these lines; why is that?”
