Almost. Agree on the responsibility to share and on being flexible on how that is done!

The cleric and the congregation both have an obligation, not just the congregation. “Discrimination” is judgment plus action. Excommunication is clearly discrimination.

We agree in principle on the approach. I will argue that you are taking words not used in the Bible and applying them to Biblical situations where other Greek words are used. Nonetheless, your approach seems to be one I concur with.
