As many people have noted, we suffer from a lack of unity within our movement for reform. I really believe one of the root causes is that we know what we are against, but we don't share a common vision of what we are for. This is why this group is defined by not only a concept of 'family rights', but also the Membership Scenarios which make things real.
If this works and the group does grow then we need to formalize this and also provide for elected leadership.
Again, I don't believe the purpose of the council is to control individual agendas or actions -- but to facilitate communication within a core group who share similar goals voluntarily.
