Young Adult voices

It should be noted that the legislation was not written by the IOT, but by the CT legislative taskforce, after a full debate by the CT. The three young adults on the CT were vocal in that debate, and the separate presence of the Division of Youth and Young Adults in the legislation is a direct product of their input. No one is claiming that the legislation is perfect as submitted, and our efforts are ongoing to produce a better vision for the General Church mission apparatus before we arrive at Tampa. Thanks for your thoughtful comments and help in doing that. Jay Brim, Chair, Legislative Taskforce, CT

Notable Quotes


   "... Every modern institution faces crises in this complex, chaotic century. What differentiates great organizations is whether and how they react, specifically their ability to galvanize a robust, united response to their challenges. Faced with urgent crises, healthy organizations rally together to save the institution they love. Unhealthy organizations play the blame game."

– Chris Lowney, writing in "Is the Catholic Church a Capsizing Ship?" for Religion News Service.


“Religion is a very complex subject, spanning the whole spectrum of human behavior. It can be an ethical, exalted expression, but religion can also be a mind-control technique to subjugate the masses.”

– Religion scholar Robert Forte, commenting in "How San Francisco's Summer of Love Sparked Today's Religious Movements" by Don Lattin for Religion News Service.
