Some were loving. Some were downright nasty.
Did You Ever Regard The Elders As Loving Shepherds?
Some were better than others. Some I thought were trying to do what they thought was best. None were ever really helpfull to me. Mostly they ignored me, but sometimes they would visit and tell me what a loser I was. Even the good intentioned ones were brainwashed to see me as only a loser. So, I didn't see the "Loving".
