Can we with personal and communal integrity engage in: Dishonesty? Coercion? Violence? Excommunications? Rejections? Banishments? Torture? Burnings? Hangings? Ridicule? Confusions? Forgetfulness? Disobedience? Protests? Criticisms? Publications? Exposures? Revelations? Pray that we may Find Common Ground within God's Love! (c) 2005 by Paul A.
