This is regarding an interfaith corporate internal message board at a large global company that promotes a company culture of diversity, equity, inclusion (using slightly different words). There are many corporate-sanctioned affinity groups, including this one. Others: LGBTQ, cancer survivors, etc. There are around 300 people on this chat channel. Usually people are very, very careful and respectful. Until Monday a week ago, when someone on it posted the “choose life” quote from Deuteronomy 30:19 without any other context.
First, what are your thoughts about the timing and substance of the quote? On the surface it seems so positive, so there’s nothing to object to other than it following so closely after the SCOTUS leak about overturning Roe v. Wade, which broke the news 2 days prior to the post. Second… what would you do if you didn’t agree with it?
I actually messaged privately to the channel manager to ask whether there were any written rules of order, codes of conduct, statements of values, core leadership, etc. I didn’t say anything about what inspired my question.
I thought of the SDMB which has a team of list mods and guidelines by topic, especially Great Debates & Elections. Pretty clear what’s OK and what’s not, and why.
