news flash: Witness editor and noted conservative couldn't agree more
From Kendall Harmon's blog "TitusOneNine:
I saw one bishop this morning who looked terrible and when I asked how he was doing he said “horrible, I was up all last night throwing up.” Another bishop who looked tuckered out said he was looking forward to seeing his golf clubs for the first time in a long while. You already saw my post below about my walking into two restroom closets and leaving my computer back in my hotel room this morning.
People with eyes like road maps who are stressed beyond measure do not think clearly. Something is very wrong with a decision making process that does that to people. Something is even more wrong with a process like that that tries to make its most important decision under great pressure from the Pb and Pb elect on the very last day. Is anyone surprised that the decision made was inadequate by any reasonable measure?
To be completely fair, I don't think "the process" is entirely at fault here. The Special Legislative Committee handling resolutions related to the Windsor Report didn't get the most controversial resolutions sent out until the second week of convention, meaning that there was practically no time for people to talk, listen, pray, and consider what was before them, let alone build consensus around the resolutions as the committee sent them out or among any given set of proposed amendments. Coincidence? I'm not sure. I'll be writing an editorial for The Witness about all this within the next day or two.
