"Comment Moderation Enabled"

Well, I give up.

There seems to be nothing for it but to move this site to a "moderated" status in order to enable those who actually want to talk about the posted articles room to do so. Please understand that this is in no way an effort to exclude those who disagree with the positions represented and presented here ... rather it is a last ditch effort to keep the discourse civil and on point as we move toward General Convention and beyond.

I hope those interested in doing so will continue to read and comment here ... and will have patience if given the press of business in the next two weeks it sometimes takes a while for the "moderated" comments to post: it'll be another "inch at a time" thing!

Great idea, Rev. Susan. Moderation will keep those interested in discussion talking, and weed out those just interested in posting graffiti.

Completely understand. It's not like you don't have enough on your plate with Convention, et al. I want to take a moment to thank you Susan, for your forebearance, tolerance, patience and goodwill toward all who come here to respond appropriately. It is a sad thing when people who call themselves Christians and identify with Christ behave in a way that puts a negative spin on His real message.

Those of us with even the best of intention in not giving any quarter to these folk, sometimes...well, we mess up and lower ourselves a bit to their standards and I have been lured there on occasion. My apologies to anyone I have unintentionally offended.

That said, ON TO COLUMBUS! :-)
