Thanks, Dinah. I'd answered Ray's post before I'd read yours. And yes, I tend to agree
that it's no longer appropriate for some people to say that others aren't Christians.

I definitely don't think belief in the Trinity is essential to Christian identity. Mind you, I don't think belief in the Virgin Birth is essential either! (As an aside, I thought the East/West schism was much later than Nicea; more like 11th century. But my memory's a little rusty.)

And I can't imagine how public shaming is useful to anyone, least of all the person shamed. It sounds very much like the practices of previous centuries...
