    I'm sure that it points out that their judging and condemnation of this woman is not something that falls within the principles of love, understanding, and forgiveness.

    This sums up my thoughts on this too. I mean was it really so hard to give out a date and even if she didn't have one...couldn't she have just made one up? It wasn't that big of a deal. This is why you should know what sort of job you are going into. If you can't follow the rules of a private business then you shouldn't work for that paticular private business. Just because a job is open and you can get it doesn't mean that they have to change to accomodate you.

    Best thing to do is lead by example.

    Yes, practice what you preach by showing this church your compassion and forgiveness.

    I never said they couldn't, nor would I call the police or try to enact government force against them. I do not condemn them to any damnation. I hope that they can understand their intolerance in time and how their lack of compassion, understanding, and respect can negatively affect others around them and that they can find the patience and empathy to treat their fellow man with compassion and respect.
