I'm sorry to hear that you have left BYM, but I hope you won't 'leave' Quakers completely. The treatment of the old Quaker at the conference was dreadful but unfortunately all too common. I'm afraid their tolerance is designed only to extend to them but not from them, which is deeply hypocritical.
If you ever need some unprogrammed, Christian worship, please feel free to join us at Ripley. You're welcome anytime.
Since "Friends" have arrived at their current status by systematically rejecting everything George Fox and the early Friends proclaimed and stood for, what grounds have they to use the name? This is clearly a taxonomical crisis, like calling sunflowers "roses" because rose sounds more sophisticated or something. By the fruit you know the tree. I am very sad to hear your account of this incident.
I take it by your comments that you have not given up on the New Foundation Fellowship nor our effort to proclaim the gospel preached by Fox and the other early Quakers. I have found this gospel to be a place to stand no matter what storms rage.
