                                  Answer:
   
   No. There is no ideological sanction process in the CCAR, although
   some in the CCAR would like to institute one for rabbis who
   co-officiate with Christian clergy at weddings. Of course, there is
   always the community. Rabbis usually have beliefs in congruence with
   the congregation or community that continues to pay their contract. In
   congregations, belief differences often lead to heated temple board
   meetings, and potentially, the Rabbi moving to a different community.
