"I have two thoughts about what Anglicans and Lutheran synod delegates might do together on Parliament Hill [Editorial, 'A church which lives to itself will die by itself', April 2013, p. 4]: 1. Both legislators and judges should be able to conduct their deliberations and arrive at their decisions in calm and quiet, without pressure from mobs or even obstreperous demonstrators. ... 2. I don't believe any politicians are impressed by demonstrations anymore, except those by advocates of the most popular and fashionable causes. ... Our church leaders and supposed representatives would do well to heed the words os a former Archbishop of Canterbury (was it Donald Coggan ?) who reminded us that Jesus said, 'Blessed are the peacemakers', not 'Blessed are the peace demonstrators'."
