    1. I generally agree with your post about Xtian love not coming through well
    on this list. I suspect that it is the nature of debate. I think it is

    I did put Jim, for a time, into my own twit filter (not anyone else) and
    told him so, which I think was both a proper and a Christain thing to do (He

    when they get on the list.
