Truly, I echo the sentiment that Rev. Furuya is a smart guy and could contribute greatly to this or any other forum. I really haven't seen anything he's written here, but have read some of the things he's published (provided we're talking about the same guy). Honestly, though, I am surprised that someone can be so "put off" by morons
that post stupid things on the forum. Some probably do it just to see if they can get a rise out of someone.
I would have thought that someone as experienced and centered as Rev. Furuya seems to be would not be "driven out" by mindless simpletons. He should say what he wants. If someone disagrees, doesn't mean he has to respond. Just because someone posts after you telling you you're wrong, doesn't make them right. These are not running arguements, these are open forums. Don't debate, just express you position....and screw the ignorant folks that refuse to hear what you have to say....
