And here you have it. It's
not just a point on which two people can agree to
disagree. No, it's "criminal".
You, in following the dictates
of your conscience and what you have
experienced, are, in Caroline's words, "criminal".
It's pretty easy for her
to point fingers, isn't it.
In truth, "criminal"
and "brainwashing" are just buzzwords, used so often by
some individuals, that they've become meaningless in this context and in
In of themselves, denotatively

You were clearly trying
to establish some points of agreement and also
create a civilized agreement to disagree on other points,but Gerry-line,

Anything other than "it's

posts to such people aren't a waste of time or
bandwidth being that they are examplars of tact, tolerance and what we
