So, I'm curious, and need to ask, if you had noticed that KBOY took note of your disciplinary words and has been posting more generic encouragement, with a focus on not using the words that seem to offend. I trust that you will take that into consideration.
We are in an interesting time right now with the "me too" movement gaining ground, and the Kavanaugh hearings going on. I too, can count myself as a "me too", on more than one occasion. I hear what you are saying, but tend to also feel that some of it is semantics. We are not professional forum writers. Expressing one's self on a forum can be hit or miss. You may feel like what you are writing from your heart is inclusive, forgiving, encouraging, and gentle. However, a reader may read it with a certain experience in mind and have a hard time with it.
As an added note, I have also read many articles on cults and their effects. I would love to read your book, but at this point, do not feel that it should be a prerequisite for contributing to the forum.
Any one of us would seriously be heartbroken to think that we have written something offensive to all of those desperately needing healing. Its good to realize and remember that we have all been in the same boat, and the way we approach our journey will be different. Hopefully, much like a marriage, working through those differences together will make us stronger.
There were so very, very many wrongs done (and still are being done). I have no issues with you doing timelines or whatever it takes to untether us from the last remaining ties and make sure those responsible are held accountable.
