We’ve covered this ground already.

Darren Stehle withdrew your article from the publication for the same reason I withdrew my applause. We were willing to interact with you at first but since you refused to engage with us — since you ignored every point that we made to you, we changed our minds.

You have ignored my points. You have ignored alto’s points. You have ignored Saoirse’s points. You have ignored Fred Shirley’s points.

You are a member of the LDS Church. I presume you support it financially. All Mormons I know do that.

The LDS Church persecutes us badly. Every day. Your membership and contribution makes you complicit.

You owe us an apology for that.

You really do.

That’s where we can start, if you are sincere. My hand is out and it is open.

The ball is in your court.
