John, thanks so much for taking time to read and respond. I honestly don’t mind being harshly criticized. I understand that people come from a place of hurt and pain, and that sometimes translates into anger and lashing out. I also have been a victim of “Pharisee Christians,” but I follow Jesus and his words, not a particular church. If someone perceives my words as hateful and toxic, then so be it. I stand by the sentiments expressed in my story.
