What an outrageous and truly eggregious decision by that judicial committee. They came across to me as being quite conceited. Their application of Acts 2:21 (de jeur elevation of "customary practice") is a wanton act of pure sophistry. The judicial committee's handling of scripture is exemplary of 2 Peter 3:16 wherein it is said:"... In them, however, are some things hard to understand, which the untaught and unsteady are twisting, as [they do] also the rest of the Scriptures, to their own destruction."
The composure of the victims is to be admired. They are quite correct when they told the committee that they are loosing decent people. Indeed, this organisation is proving rather adept at such haemorrhaging of nice folks who wish to be open minded.
