I thought I would forward the email response I received after requesting removal from [Vision Forum’s] mailing list. Please know you guys are in my prayers. After several hours reading your site, SFU and Matt C’s Mrs. Binoculars it became rather obvious what is going on as I have experienced this kind of thing before. While in a Christian high school in Alexandria, Va. the same type of individuals directed some of the same kind of accusations and judgment toward me. Unfortunately the classmate of mine that I was falsely accused of immorality with went home for Christmas vacation and committed Suicide. This occurred in 1985 and has affected my life greatly. In reading some [of] your daughter’s comments (that were posted by the ex-interns on SFU) I’m reminded of long term hurt and bitterness, and to be totally honest hatred that came into my heart because of these people. I guess I’m real slow to forget, as I think of my friend everyday and it has tarnished my Christmas for years. I pray your daughter is able to see these people for who they are and finds peace in a real church, that cares about people. I pray daily for your family and know God will give you eventual Justice. I know this all has to wear on you guys and pray the Lord strengthens your resolve daily.
I really think Doug and friends are beginning to really feel the “heat”, as some of their posts on SFU are getting down right bizarre. Believe it or not your situation is being discussed among the home school crowd quite a bit up here in Northern Va. I really appreciate your speaking out on the importance of a quality education, regardless of a child’s sex. No parent has the right to under educate their daughters for an idealogical view. That is really sick. I took a look at Jennie C. mother & stepfather’s courtship service website. I think I would rather stand on the street with a sign (wife wanted) before going that route.Some of these people are scary weird. That questionnaire was something else.

Mr. Phillips, recently Vision forum and yourself came up at a lunch time conversation and I was sternly warned to avoid dealing with your company.Normally I’m rather dismissive of these “suggestions” but since it was coming from someone of very reliable reputation, I agreed to check out a site (Jen’s Gems) as well as your local church site. Although it seemed a bit over the top, I was even more shocked by Matt’s site Mrs. Binoculars and another still fed up. Having friends and a few ex-interns run interference of this sort makes you look rather scummy to be quite frank. Still I was just kind of thinking things over when the Arlington book fair rolled around. That pretty much convinced me that you personally are out of control and that the elders of your church have really botched a local church issue, turning it into something now being discussed in Northern Va. I hope you reevaluate and are able to end this mess soon.
Please remove me from your mailing list.
Additionally please cease from selling my info. to other marketers.
