Stand Up to Synodical Bullies - They Are Sore Afraid of the Word


I have changed permanently to a larger text size. My classmate calls me Mr. Magoo. I said, "John Milton is more dignified for a nickname."

This is 16 point Arial. It was 12 point before. I was changing text size after the initial editing and decided I liked it better.

I will  carefully consider all comments in a democratic and diapraxic way, thank everyone for the input, and continue to post in 16 point.

I have learned from my betters at The Love Shack, The Purple Palace, and The Little Vatican on the Prairie. As long as people think they are involved in the decision, they can be fooled into approving anything.

"As long as people think they are involved in the decision, they can be fooled into approving anything."
A friend of mine calls this process "sham democracy". It seems to be very effective in implementing an agenda. Directly dictating to folks can make them feel powerless. If you hoodwink them into being an apparent stakeholder, they will feel empowered. Likewise, one should be cautious of studies, steering committees, facilitators, alleged groupthink exercises, etc. They are all rarely neutral. Once again, the church kelms the tactics of the corporate realm.
