Democracy in the Church?

By Diogenes (articles ) | Jan 05, 2004

Carol McKinley, who has devoted herself to exposing the liberal agenda of Voice of the Faithful, now reveals exactly how "democratic" the upstart organization is.

McKinley's blog notes that although VOTF claims over 30,000 members (since anyone who asks for information as counted as a "member"), just over 1,000 people voted in the group's first National Elections.

Those elected included a President, Secretary, and Treasurer from Massachusetts. In the closest race, for Treasurer, Ann Carroll of Massachusetts edged out Ken Forton of Massachusetts. And remember, these were national elections.

VOTF's President Jim Post (of Massachusetts) was re-elected. Following the exalted democratic traditions established by Mobutu Sese Seko, he ran unopposed.

Power to the people!
