SILVER SPRING, Md. — A massive renovation project has transformed the General Conference auditorium into an echo chamber featuring cutting-edge technology that ensures those inside the hall will never suffer interruptions to group think exercises. The echo chamber allows no external light whatsoever to illuminate even the thorniest of issues. Several compliance committees spent yesterday inspecting the chamber for imperfections or George Knight but found neither. Lengthy test statements made in the auditorium by committee members on everything from ordination to permissible Adventist cafeteria items, were perfectly echoed back without a hint of dissent or critical thought.
