Despite my deep disagreement with your fundamental position, I realize that my tone has recently been very harsh, sarcastic, and at times condescending. I regret this and while I continue to disagree with you, I will try to do so in the future in a more respectful and charitable manner.
I recognize that the argument is separate from the individual and, as individuals, many of you have gone through the same experiences we all have and are understandably shocked at what has happened to our Church in the last 50 or so years.
In any case, please accept my sincere apologies for any of my statements that were less than kind to any of you.
Thank you for listening.
