I'm not sure a veto would help matters when you get disagreement on
topics that involve a lot of emotion.

If a vote went through with a majority wanting option A and then a small
group veto'd it, you might avoid the small group resigning, but what
impact would that have on the majority who've had their views overturned?

Short term, perhaps it would avoid resignations but longer term you may
find it's those who had their votes veto'd that resign.
