Great letter!!! You stuck it to them girlfriend!!! You laid it on the line and spoke the truth. I am proud of your decision to have your name removed from their roles. Rest assured, your name is in the Book of Life and will remain there and that is the only roll I care about. I hope someone at RPC will read what you have written and respond with love and not judgment. I am reminded of the old song I learned when I was a kid- "They will know we are Christians by our love". They won't know Christians by their exclusion of others, by their judgment and hatred. And you are right, men have used the Bible throughout history to justify their own fears and prejudices. Preach on sister-girl! You did a great job.
