I am being told that when i gave an example (in another thread) of a situation where no NAMES were mentioned. no PLACE was named and no nothing was given to give anyone the abilty to EVER know who the parties were that were involved in the story. I was told i was gossiping (some peoples favorite word) The person before me gave an example of people without mentioning any names and she was not chastised. yet her story was more revealing than mine. If i remember correctly Jesus did this all the time when he gave parables and stories. It isn't gossip if know one knows who you are talking about and isn't ever able to find out? all it is is a story, either a true one or fictional! Authors do this all the time change the names for their protection and it's very legal.
