If inclusion and diversity is your cup of tea then perhaps someone can explain why newly elected board members asked at the April meeting what other the board thought of same sex marriage. Why would they ask such a question? The answer can be found on Christ Church pastor, Doug Wilson’s, website. Here are some links which might explain why it is a matter of interest to them. http://dougwils.com/s7-engaging-the-culture/same-sex-mirage.html http://dougwils.com/s7-engaging-the-culture/elsie-dinsmore-with-a-beard.html http://dougwils.com/books/homo-republicanus.html These three entries represent the tip of the iceberg - Doug is enthralled with the topic - but you should get the drift. It seems to me that those who favor the long time Co op reputation of supporting equality (in this instance) regardless of gender, orientation, or identification, should be willing – indeed eager - to sign a statement to that effect. On the other hand, if you run with a crowd, or sit under the care of a pastor who never misses a change to mock, belittle and name call you probably don’t share the general attitude of tolerance exercised by other members of the board. From a pragmatic perspective, I am told that the Co-op Board has seven members. Four constitutes a majority. How easily the traditional direction of the Co-op could be changed if the a particular group of folks decide that they wish to do so. A signed statement of core values in terms that celebrate inclusivity for members, patrons, employees and board members (prior to elections or employee hiring) might be one way to ensure that the will of the majority – whatever that might be - will be honored. Good luck,Rose Huskey
