H. of Dep. rejects proposal to have % their dioceses give TEC beside deputies’ name before speaking

Posted by Kendall Harmon

Here is the text:

Resolved, That Rule of Order 34 of the House of Deputies be revised to read as follows:
When any member is about to speak or to deliver any matter to the House, the member shall, with due respect, address the President, state name and Diocese, and confine any remarks strictly to the point of debate. If the member is speaking about a resolution calling for the expenditure of any moneys, including the proposed Budget of The Episcopal Church, the member shall also state the percent of diocesan income that deputy’s diocese has committed to The Episcopal Church for the current year.

Just think if they had to answer whether they believed Jesus Christ is the Way, the Truth, and the Life every time they wanted to speak. Looks like the PB and her minions are about to impose a reverse means test on the right to vote.

I just wonder if any of them actually think about what they’re saying when they dream up resolutions like this - do they visualize what that would look like? What kind of message it really sends? (“You have to pay to be listened to in TEC.”)
