GS 2010 art 148

Article 148 – SCBP: Bias of Report Language

1.         Material

Letter from Guelph (8.3.J.4).

2.         Observation

The church of Guelph wants Synod 2010 to promote balance in the language of committee reports to avoid undue bias being inferred.

3.         Considerations

  • 3.1        One church has complained about this matter, and this does not seem to be an issue among the other churches.
  • 3.2        Synod does not see how a committee can work towards a decided report without words such as “archaic.”

4.          Recommendation:

That Synod decide this matter does not need further attention.
