Appreciate you sharing your journey and growth. My husband and I have experienced similar events in our lives. The more we study the life of Jesus and the early church, the more we see that the current evangelicals, fundamentalists, right wingers are not in line with His teachings. I feel that one must be open to God’s leading in our life and that can change our preconceptions and mandates that we were taught by these extremist groups. Truth will make itself manifest in our lives, when we are open to God’s leading.
