Duane, I read the bit about core points and came away with a different take from you. They said that the core points are not open to discussion, but that spirituality is not core. That means it’s open to discussion. No one can force spirituality down someone else’s worldview at IBHA because spirituality is not part of the core. Still, it’s legitimate, as the report says. If spirituality were part of the core with no room for dissent, then the non-spiritual people would have to bail out of the IBHA. The core is for what everyone holds in common, and spirituality is only for one segment of the participants, so it can’t be core. I don’t think atheism is core, either, but I bet there are some atheists at IBHA.
