I really wish that we might avoid these tags altogether, at least on-list.
They seem based upon an assumption that people who think are consistent in
their views on all matters. For my part I tend to be suspicious of people
who claim to be altogether consistent--it's not that I think consistency is
bad but that I doubt it is altogether human. At any rate, the labels and
tags regarding theological stances can be more misleading than helpful, and
I think we should avoid them here.
