Getting the rug pulled out from under you is not a pleasant experience.
In the last few years I have had some friends who have had this experience. In each case I have found myself pretty upset on their behalf.
These were people committed to their cause and then, out of the blue, they were told that they didn’t fit any more.
It is my personal care for these people that keeps me from being objective. But I do have one question that I wish we’d consider before pulling the rug out on someone: Shouldn’t we recognize that there really is good in diversity? Didn’t God give a variety of gifts for complement instead of uniform?
