Explanation: Why Anonymous?This poll is purposely designed to be anonymous. It's about the content and not about who have written the analyses. The initiators are not a "contra band movement." It would be too easy to frame them as such. They want an open and conscientious discussion on a highly amendable policy vision and not on the functioning of the Union leaders or individuals. They are a group of concerned brothers and sisters that cannot stay silent see: 1 Sam 14:24-30.
Therefore you are asked to give your opinion on the content.
This is a solely rational discussion, and we can surely do that, in a respectful manner.
Besides, some people have asked to sustain this initiative, but didn't want their names to be disclosed. We respect that.
The almost 60 initiators, from almost every congregation, are no rebels, fundamentalists, conservatives, but ordinary, faithful, God fearing brothers and sisters, who want to direct our attention to a certain development, with reasoning and good arguments.
Seize the opportunity and give your opinion on basis of your judgment of the contents and not by the form in which it is presented, or because you want to identify the writers or not.
You can even indicate that you agree with the policy! That is altogether fair.
Finally, you are asked to give your name and other information to be able to check for multiple entrys and to have an "independent" check on the validity of the poll ... that indeed members in the Netherlands have spoken out and not the inhabitants of Timbuktu.
Entrys from members of the worldwide Church abroad are heartedly welcomed, as encouragement.
There will be no "black" or "white" list composed, on basis of the entrys.
No names will be disclosed.
We trust that you can understand this.
But if you want to make a personal comment on the content: Ingrid Wijngaarde, is hosting this website on behalf of the initiators. Please, send in your message by contactform.
