Word's Mean Things
One of the complaints early on in the Issues, Et. controversy was that some people were referring to synodical officials, elected and appointed, as "bureaucrats", "suits", and worst of all "politicians". The reason why this is done is very simple - the Eighth Commandment. This Commandment requires us to bear true witness. When our elected and appointed synodical officials act like the people in the Ministry of Magic in the Harry Potter books, there are no other terms to use for them unless we wish to violate the Eighth Commandment.
