E.J. - How is writing a book *forcing* anybody away from his or her religion? How is writing a book cause for suspicion of her motives? You haven't read the book, have you? So why do you automatically assume that it's a religious hate book?
You seem to me to be saying one thing and meaning another as I read your posts. You say that you can admit there are valid points of criticism, but you *seem* to be inclined to tell the rest of us to butt out and leave the cleaning up to church members. We had an example of internal attempts to clean up the church back in the 80's -how many people were declared? I've lost count. Unless you're DM, you aren't likely to change any policies. But I wish you luck in trying.
If that's not what you mean, then please accept my apologies. But if it *is* what you mean, you're wasting your time. The only way to shut me up is to shoot me in the head. And if you're right that we come back...well, I'd recommend moving to red alert about 20 years after I'm put in the grave.
