It appears to me, that this subject of Blood Atonement  is one where we will
just have to agree to dis-agree. Besides, if a statement defining the matter
appeared in The Church News, what's left to discuss? All the thinking has
been done. Therefore, I respectfully suggest that we avoid a discussion of
Blood Atonement like we would the plague (the disease, not Camus').  If you
want to propose a subject that is rife with contention, how about a no holds
barred free-for-all on why "Give Said The Little Stream" is no longer sung
by Primary age children. <wink>
