Can we use the analogy of ordering a pizza?How hard is that for you to understand?
You are about to prepare your dinner, as are the rest of the inhabitants of that house. You have a larder full of groceries, but some of you fancy something different. About half of you fancy something from the larder, the other half of you fancy a pizza. It is a straight choice, pizza or something out of the larder. Whatever is decided you all have to accept it.
Collectively you choose the pizza.
You phone up the pizza shop and order some pizzas but you don't specify which ones, you leave it to the pizza shop's discretion. The shop does some average pizzas, trying to please everyone, just tomato and cheese so that the contents fits the description. There was no suggestion that the pizzas could be refused when they were ordered. They've been ordered, they must be accepted.
When the pizzas arrive, you don't like them, but it's the only ones that the pizza delivery has.
You can choose to accept those pizzas, or go without.
Some may want to accept them, grudgingly. Others don't want them, and prefer to go without, perhaps hoping that there might be other options coming along, especially when some try to persuade you that there are other options.
Requesting that the pizza delivery returns with another option is out of the question, it's his/her last delivery and he/she are on their way home, and the shop will be shut by the time he/she gets there.
Fortunately, you have a larder full of other nice things to eat.
Whatever is decided is binding on you all.
What do you do?
