Launius engaged in an e-mail exchange with an individual who had questions about an article Launius had published in the September 1996 issue of Sunstone. The article was entitled "The RLDS Church and the Decade of Decision." The individual wanted to know how much of the article was fact and how much was opinion. Launius listed articles that he and others had authored on the history of the RLDS Church in the 20th-century. He indicates that his and others' writings on the process of reformation in the RLDS Church is as factual as the present limitation on source documents permits. He attests that his article did include some opinion in his advocating some change in policy. He concludes with a discussion about what he perceives as little difference between "fact" and "opinion."
