Evidently not, considering that my Church survived that, and is considered the mainline Christian church in Canada. Interestingly, some denominations rebelled and made affirmative statements about Jesus' divinity, which I would point out is an example of church members actively defying the authority from on top and not being disciplined.

So why are the most generalized statements about religion as a whole tolerated and not acknowledged as ill-informed? --- In Zen_Forum@yahoogroups.com, mike brown <uerusub...@...> wrote: > > DP, > > Whoa!
