"Therefore we expect that our Conferences will always try to act in the spirit of mutual respect and love--one member for another. In turn, this sign signifies that mutual trust should prevail; that no action ought to be taken in anger, haste, or recklessness; that care will be observed to respect and protect all minorities; that no action should ever be personally punitive; that whenever possible, important actions will be taken in substantial unanimity; and that our Conference will ever be on guard against tyrannies, great or small, whether these be found in the majority or in the minority"
