- And lots of others…..
Personally, I believe that the “Brethren” are both smart, and sincere….so my main question is…..which of the following scenarios are more likely?
- The brethren knew that they would get this type of press over this firing, and WANTED this coverage as sort of a public/PR/political “stake in the ground”, or
- Was it more of a moral decision–standing on principle (from their perspective)? Sort of a, “We’re gonna get hammered for this, but we’re willing to face the consequences because we believe it is/was the right thing to do?”
Very interesting indeed…..
