If I'm right then you are way wrong in posting her private notes here. You need to get a grip and cut that out, Bill.
Perhaps if you knew more of the way that silentlambs has been treated by his parents and his local congregation, you would reserve judgement on his coming to his friends here for support and input.
If you don't want to read or comment on his posts, then don't. But why take pot shots at him for seeking support from those of us who have been in this very position and had to struggle through it alone? I know that I certainly wouldn't want a friend of mine to go through it without any support, like myself and many others have.
I think that his decision to post his correspondance here is just that, his decision. If you don't want to comment, then don't. But then just click off the thread and leave the man alone. No need to try to embarrass him for your own personal discomfort with the topic.
Why post it here? I know why I have posted some seriously personal "Diary" kinds of things here. To help people. For the lurkers. From the mail I get, believe me, it's appreciated. I'm sure that many people will be helped knowing that they're not alone in receiving such letters from their parents. That in itself, to me, makes it worth posting.
so maybe you need to get the "grip"
