So "fanatic" is the primary word you object to Tansy? : ).
To answer your question Tansy, i forgive Rainy for her religious arrogance and pompousness, her fundamentalist fanaticism that causes her to imagine herself a religious know it all and to imagine that anybody who does not believe doctrinally in alignment with herself and with the institutionalized religious mainstream which has molded her into what she is... is not a "real Christian" and that such individuals whom she has so haughtily deemed as "heretics and apostates" for daring to seek the Living God for themselves are "anathema" and headed to an eternity in hell.
I forgive her for the blindness and hard heartedness she is in that has caused her to so arrogantly follow in the judgemental and self righteous footsteps of what the Catholic church has been doing for centuries against those who have dared to seek God and His truth for themselves apart from the mandated structure of institutionalized religious conformity.
I fully understand that others don't agree with all that i believe as a follower of Jesus and this is certainly their right, a right which i support. And everybody has been respectful in expressing their differing opinions, just as i have been respectful towards them. But only Rainy has chosen to be disrespectful, dogmatic, and judgemental about it... and to pompously declare herself the know it all who is definitely and unquestionably right... and that since i and others believe differently from her in certain areas of doctrine, she has decided in all of her self righteous judgement and in alignment with her Catholic church predecessor that i and others are headed to hell.
If you had been following the saga and reading Rainy's words, you would have a better understanding of what she has been saying.
