[Gselections2015] A question!

We have said that our aim is to get a synod with a 2/3 majority for inclusive issues.
Are we intending to achieve that by the same means as the conservatives? – eg “I support traditional marriage” meaning in fact it is so good LGBT people should be able to benefit from it too! Or is our aim for a representative synod on the assumption that that will be more inclusive?
The reason that I ask is that if our aim is the second then I think we have a second string to our bow which is to develop a series of carefully worded questions and encourage all those standing for synod to provide answers on their manifestos. If we can gain support for this from a number of organisations across the spectrum then those who refuse to answer will stand out like a sore thumb.
This second string would also be a campaign which matches the Covenant profile better – who could think that a more representative synod is a bad thing, and we would quite probably get widespread support. It would also make it easier to tell our supporters which answers to look for.
