First, I think it's important that we understand what this place is. This forum is not a church and has never strived to be one. So, while there may be a theological framework that demands that churches expel unfaithful members and stand strong in what they believe, such a demand doesn't apply to this place because this is a discussion forum, not a church.

CJAT is not a discussion forum. CJAT is a church. CJAT is not appealing to everyone because, as a church, they have a set of beliefs that not everyone agrees with. Personally, I see them not as a Christian church but as a cult that worships the idol "Joshy". Therefore I wouldn't feel comfortable there even though I am a liberal Christian.

This is the only Christian bl forum and it has always been a welcoming place for all BLs who profess Christian faith or are interested in it. All Christian views have been welcomed here and should continue to be welcomed here. The fundamentalist position is not the only position and it should not be the litmus test for whether someone is welcomed here or not.

It sounds to me like what you are trying to do has negatives that far outweigh the positives. You are cleaning house, expelling those who disagree with your position on a non-essential issue, in order to help make the ever shrinking minority of conservative evangelical fundamentalists more comfortable. It's just not worth it.
