I await another answer to the question. Thank you for yours, Doug.
It is one thing for an institution to take a position on some concern in the society or culture after a review and decision by a governing body. It is quite another for leaders of a committee or institution to speak for the institution about a concern when they have not been authorized to do so and when the institution has not spoken through it's elected and authorized body. They certainly have the right to speak for themselves, but not for all members of the institution unless authorized to do so.
