Actually I had posted this because some people had voiced doubts about whether
you could be a good member and a Democrat. This idea is often attributed to a
well-known GA.

Was he LDS? (just curious; I know the incident you're talking about. I also know
there's absolutely no proof that he was "taken out" -- that's an old canard,
although I'm not surprised it's still quacking in certain circles).

“We do not think that there is an incompatibility between words and deeds; the
worst thing is to rush into action before the consequences have been properly
debated…To think of the future and wait was merely another way of saying one was
a coward; any idea of moderation was just an attempt to disguise one’s unmanly
character; ability to understand a question from all sides meant that one was
totally unfitted for action.” – Pericles about his fellow-Athenians, as quoted by
Thucydides in “The Peloponessian Wars”
