Ah, the "rebel" allegiation. I've heard that one before...

That's indeed the big dogmatic bat. Are you sure that your interpretation of 
being faithful to Scripture is the right one?

You argument from a position of such great strength that I wonder if you lead 
a project with many diligent and dedicated volunteers so that you don't need 
(or even want) help from others.

Your arguments contradict Crosswire's stated goals (as cited today) and make 
me personally really sad. 

More people will decide to work (primarily) in other areas, just like I did.
