but I hate the idea of splitting up groups. Are there really enough members to support both groups separately? I don't think there is. We have a hard time as it is getting people to post on here.
I also don't like the idea of putting everyone in an "us vs. them" sort of scenario. Christian Liberals and Progressive People of Faith are similar in their views overall on issues such as social justice. To divide everyone may not work well in the long run and actually bring about the closing of both groups.
I want this group to include all who are interested from all branches, including non-Christians. The only thing I hope to see out of this group is a bit of civility in discussions. Instead of breaking everything up we need to find ways to build more traffic to the group.
