I didn't mention, nor did I speak of, being faithful to scripture. I 
don't see how having respect for the Bible, itself, and wishing to do 
the best possible job with it is at all a controversial point.

I don't understand this sentence.

I never made reference to the CrossWire Purpose Statement and was not 
citing it as an authority. I made only reference to policies and guiding 
principles, and when that was unclear, I specified precisely what I 
meant--which again had nothing to do with the Purpose Statement.

That being said, I don't comprehend how anything I've said contradicts 
the Purpose Statement.
