* * * *New edit here: Regarding the issue of were we asked to leave or did we leave on or own accord, this is the msnbc.com quote:
Smith, who used to play piano at the Beaverton church, said she and her family were asked to leave the congregation in November 2008, but it was almost a year before she took her grievances online. Church leaders, however, deny ever asking the Smiths to leave and claim her family left of their own accord.

I copied the top part of the review. I have underlined the important phrase:
- Nov 18, 2009JulieAnne's Destructive Slander Continues To Whom It May Concern: Almost a year ago JulieAnne and her husband were Biblically put out of Beaverton Grace Bible Church with a group of families and individuals that were engaged in ongoing divisive slander.
Also, I found out early this morning that a press release was issued. I've read it, it's long, drawn out and has no place here on my blog and he does not get to have a platform here. Amen. Amen. And Amen!
