So true. I felt guilty when I spent too much time with one friend (a fellow female, mind you) because it probably meant we had formed a clique and were rebels. After all, we weren't even on the same team! And that rule that you should seek out friends of a higher spiritual level than you... I never did understand how that worked. The more mature people you sought out as friends would avoid the more immature you, right? Ah, the freedom to be friends with someone just because you like him/her! Mairzy

Yes, the more mature people DID often avoid the more immature ones! a vicious cycle!

That definition of "clique" is right on! I was a student in Verity, before it got bad (ok, so that was only the first 2 weeks), and there were people getting accused of being in cliques all over the place. I wonder if leadership ever realized that some personalities just seem to clique. You know, kind of like Hitler and Goebbels. Or maybe BillyG and Kimminesh. Anyway, just so you know, I was also described as a rebel. Go figure!
