Two things I read today:

1. From my employee handbook
Every silencing of a heresy, every enforcement of an orthodoxy, diminishes the toughness and resilience of our society and leaves it the less able to deal with stress.
-- ALA Freedom to Read statement

2. From em's blog
Successful life forms are characterized by diversity, so changing environments don't wipe them out. That diversity often extends to sexuality. Thus bisexuality and homosexuality are characteristics not of twisted nature, but of generous nature.
-- Susan McCarthy
It sounds like the orthodoxy needs all of us weirdos - very cool.

A (fairly conservative) pastor friend said something along those lines. "We need the balance. If we kick all the [liberals]/[right-wingers] out, that shifts the perspective of the entire organization too far in one direction. It's not healthy if everybody thinks the same way."
That's a farsighted friend you've got there, fritz. Hurrah!
