Help with a Very Difficult Decision

A community should not send people away simply because they are disturbing or have a difficult character, or seem to be in the wrong place, or are challenging it. The only people who should be sent away are those who have already cut themselves off from the community in their own hearts, who pose a real threat by influencing others against legitimate authority and sapping confidence in it. These people divide the community and deflect it from its first goals.
