      Maurice - I agree with you 100%. We ( especially as former
      homosexuals ) should know better and be more respectful. Although we
      may not agree with each 100% on doctrine or politics, it does not give
      us the right to demean the other. Doubly so as Christians.

      Bridget - you are welcome in this group. You have always stayed within
      the groups evangelical parameters. We may not agree eye to eye
      theologically all the time, but we can agree to disagree. You add a
      spice of diversity to the group.

      Henry

      Besides as strugglers with SSA I would think that people would be more
      respectful of others not making REJECTS unnecessarily.
