Well, as I think I've already mentioned, there is a Labour MP who's a strait-laced 
Latter-day Saint. According to a news item in the Feb. 1991 Ensign, Terry Rooney, 
Labour MP for Bradford North, is also (or was at the time) a convert of 5 years, and 
Quorum President in the Bradford 2nd Ward. I don't know many elders quorum presidents 
who aren't "strait-laced" and their laces are usually pretty straight, too, when 
they're not wearing loafers ;-)

This is not what liberal means to me at all. But I won't argue the point any further 
-- the term, like the demonization, doesn't translate well across borders.
