John Remy posted an interesting blog/video where a man, speaking about his concern with the Church’s practice and policy during the Prop 8 debate, was asked by the Bishop to stop. The man protested and was allowed to finish but the Microphone was turned off. What would make you ask someone to sit down?
I have never even seen this done. Therefore I thought I would include a short poll to see if you good folks have:
I hope John won’t mind me including the video here for you all.
If you were a Bishop, what would it take for you to ask someone to sit down or change what they were saying? Is there anything that would cause you to do that?
- Doctrinal Disagreement (if so what kind?)
- Attack of a Church Leader
- Personal Criticism of a Member
- Drunk or on Drugs
For my part I disagree with someone after they had spoken if I felt that it might upset people. For example, if someone declared Jesus to be a liar I might express my feelings to the contrary afterward. I think personal criticism or swearing might be something which I might stop. If they were drunk I could accept it as long as they did not do any of the other two.
What do you think?
