    Thanks especially for the link to the essay on complementarianism, which had some great resources for addressing (as I’m gearing up to do as soon as I get over the fortnight for corporate freedom) why having a committed Mormon even on the presidential ballot gives me the willies. I’ll share on Facebook the graphic I did affirming I’m a begotten, not incorporated, Christian and citizen.
