Taking a stand

Apparently the Anglican Church in the rest of the world (you know, the division with a spine) is fried enough at the US & Canadian Anglican Churches' ordination of homosexuals that they've voted them out.

Which is to say, good for them. BeCAUSE...it's about time peole realized it's okay to stick to your guns. We choose our associations. Organizations set guidelines. If someone wants to change the guidelines, they're free to set up their own. But they do not have the right to demand that the organization change its guidelines. If I disagree with an organization's agenda, I do not join; if I am already associated with them, I leave. Very simple concept.

And we can all have legitimate differences of opinion.

Too bad everyone doesn't always have the self-confidence to do what they believe to be right, on their own.
