Having read Kurt's letter, I don't understand intensity of the opposition to it.
Basically, he asks why it's necessary for the ARSC to have a stated policy about
racism and police brutality. No sane person supports those two things. So why
doesn't the ARSC also have a stated policy on pedophilia, auto theft, vandalism,
kidnapping, narco-trafficing, or any other odious endeavor? Racism and police
brutality are topics in the news, and need to be addressed, but is anything of
value added to the political debate to know that Dunkin' Donuts, Servpro,
Steuben Glass, or the ARSC are among the millions of right thinking
organizations that oppose thuggish behavior? Will the ARSC now feel compelled
to make statements about all political debates going forward? And at that point,
doesn't it become in some way a political organization?
