Mary, I was not accusuing your deputation. I was pointing out that your
diocese does have vote and voice, as my correspondent seemed to forget.
I respect you and my other colleagues from your deputation and am glad
that I do not hear any of you (or us) threatening to leave whenever the
Convention may not vote as you or we might want.
Thanks for giving me an opportunity to clarify my point further.
