I agree with your paraphrasing!!!!
while she agrees that teaching abstinence is OK - apparently the book calls for NO teaching of it, or at least that was the impression I got from O'Reilly.
Elders didn't appreciate much of what he had to say about the book. She jumped on him for reading 'sentences" instead of paragraphs. I got the impression she never read the book at all.
I got the same impression, especially after Bill asked her a couple of questions and she defended the author but couldn't come back with a good reason why.
