Code of Ethics (continued)

Actually Pauline, unlike Grover, I am not demanding that you sign anything to get some kind of payoff. In fact, I'm not demanding anything. If you want to print out the code of ethics and use it as a daily reminder of who you are and who you want to be, great. If you want to modify it to reflect your own beliefs, great. If you want to ignore the whole idea, it will have no effect on your
membership in this forum or your ordination.
As I stated before, you are not making any pledge to me or the UM. Your ethics are a matter for you and God to work out. I have no bribe to offer for your participation. I guess that's why I will never be a successful lobbyist. Oh well.
