Your "creative editing" changed the meaning of what I said from a
hypothetical to a bare assertion. That is upsetting. Please refrain from
"creatively editing" me again.

I don't believe my objection creates an impasse. I suggested multiple ways
to address it, only one of which Mark has rejected so far.

“You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’
But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,
that you may be children of your Father in heaven. ... If you love those
who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors
doing that? And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more
than others?" [Matthew 5:43-47]
