When I ran a UU church board, our meetings were often paused while a member who was a minister and UUA employee saying that this or that "violated process." That distraction has popped up like our friend the old mole on the issue of handling the amendment initiative to stop same-sex marriage here.
Our own take does not favor the process people. However, if you have missed this cycle, do head over to Ryan's Take, particularly his latest.
He's been the lead warrior against the let-the-people-vote faction at Blue Mass Group. If you click through from his post there, make sure to have a big cup of whatever you drink to see you through the comments.
It's illustrative of the hidden hot buttons of self-identified lefties. Read 'em and weep. Read 'em and laugh.
