"You have to work hard to offend Christians. By nature, Christians are the most forgiving, understanding, and thoughtful group of people I've ever dealt with. They never assume the worst. They appreciate the importance of having different perspectives. They're slow to anger, quick to forgive, and almost never make rash judgments or act in anything less than a spirit of total love . . . No, wait--I'm thinking of Labrador retrievers!" David Learn, 1998

P.S. by John Anderson

     "The current Bylaws, Article V Section D 10 provides that any matter which comes up at a meeting and which is not specifically covered by our Bylaws shall be governed by the most current edition of Robert's Rules of Order.  That is the 11th edition.  WELL, I requested the tabulations from the vote at the meeting and it was refused.  Our Bylaws set forth that these records (the minutes of the meeting) shall be kept at our business office and be available to any member.  Robert's Rules Section 4, page 48, lines 18-23 and page 50 lines 21-27 require that the tabulated numerical vote be given to the members and then the percentage.  The Robert's Rules, newly revised In Brief, 2d edition, which is correlated with the official Rules, on page 74, discusses the handling of a ballot vote and on page 75 discusses the "required" Teller's written report which is to be entered into the minutes.  In other words. . . the actual vote must be entered into the minutes of the meeting and be available to the members. . . 
     "This, together with the fact that every vote at the meeting was invalid because of the Point of Order I made, in timely fashion, that they had improperly denied the vote to numerous people (the number or affect on the outcome is not relevant), really shows what the wolves in leadership at Grace is composed of."
