    This is so very sad.

    I have sent articles to PURPOSE for years and never had any problem at all. Many have been printed in PURPOSE.

    I cannot believe that you are now telling me not to send any more submissions just because you disagree with my opinion regarding McLaren. Surely we can disagree on such a matter without you as editor exercising your editorship powers to discount my submissions. This is unbelievable, really.

    If you stay firm on this, I am going to contact the denominational press to tell them of how unreasonable and unfair your action is. It does appear that being the new editor of PURPOSE is bringing to the fore a headiness that makes no sense and should be embarrassing to you.

    I really am shocked at your email received this morning.
