Supertradmum - Do you have any evidence that the third presit mentioned in your post 'did not want to face an orthodox layperson teaching what he disagreed with....' Name the presits, don't trade in innuendo like so many of the hateful cowards hiding on this and similar blogs. If you are so sure, and you are so right and they so wrong, expose them. But if you are such a 'Supertardmum' why are you challenging the authority of your presit? Could it be you are not as good as you think you are and the presit can see that?
