"Here's another Southern Baptist chiming in. I worked with children for 20 years in the church and in the public sector. I've seen many occasions where churches pushed children into decisisons they weren't ready to make.

Thanks for the friend ad! You were asking what I thought of Oklahoma when I lived there - to be honest I loved it, much prefer it to living in the UK.
