Here's an idea: Why don't you write a letter to Claire and post it here with your legal name on it and we'll decide if we like it or not? I received quite a few good calls after Jim posted the letter and I felt it was written very well. I thought it was very "in her face", non threatening and sent a good clear challenge to the other side.

You've got to deal with language they understand, you've also got to draw them out of their rabbit holes in order to actually discuss the issues with them and have them answer hard, specific questions. The myth that they've created for their members is that they are "fighting" in the spirit, and don't need to worry about the physical. It's their turn to come out and face the media and dump this idea that the only time they'll need to fight is when they're in the lions den and running from the AC. IMO Jim's challenge gives them an avenue to debate in this physical realm of responsibility.
