What if the students and staff decide they want the Pope to be a member
of the staff for a year? And the Pope agrees and everyone realizes that
the Pope being the Pope cannot be expected to treat anyone else as an
equal. The Pope, as everyone knows, is a representative from God and
that is exactly what the majority of the voters that year want, the
presence of a representative from God.

Would it then be appropriate for this particular SVS-model staff member
to treat the students and other staff members as less than equal? Dale
