Sooner or later the person "comes out" or gets outed, as a universalist and appears to be a deceiver in the modst, awaiting the opportunity to lead some saints "astray". To much of a mind bend for me.... but I agree with maintenance man on this. If they serve wine for communion, weekly, I would be more positively disposed- especially if they use a goblet, like the Holy Grail
