Happy Sunday Dr. Bob,

I know I am new to this forum so I hope that I am not out of line. But I'd like to ask you to re-consider your banishment of Dena. I've re-read her post and believe it to be a re-statement of basic Christian tenents. It is a fundamental belief among many Christians that part of their role as true believers is to lead others away from what they percieve as false teachings, towards truth and redemption through Christ. This results in many Christians feeling the need to declare that others are wrong. So I see this not as an attack on others by Dena, but Dena following her faith. Therefore I believe that this should qualify as "protected speech" in any faith based forum. As long as she isn't trying to mock, or ridicule anyone. I think its clear that her intent is to help, not hurt. And in any ruling of this sort, intent should be given heavy consideration. I've been a part of enough on-line communities to knwo the difference between a person who is trying to harm another and one who is simply saying what he/she believes. And regardless of what I might believe, I am open enough to acknowledge that she might be right. At a very minimum, any seeker of spiritual wisdom should consider this point of view very carefully. And so, I ask that Dena not be punished for speaking her truth.

Thank you for monitoring this forum so closely.

Mercury
