Well, crap.


Gee, looks like some people think that having a "program on social security" where you make sure your congregation only hears one side of the issue is the sort of thing that political organizations do.

I could have told ya that.

who knows that this is not an especially egregious example in itself. But give an RNC intern two hours and an internet connection and they can find enough little speeches about Republican evils to seriously screw us up. For our own good, we need to start admonishing one another on this issue.

I believe you're fighting a losing battle, CC. It might just be the Midwestern curse- it WAS Indiana once again in that story- but near as I can tell, Art's views are not merely the norm, but such a majority as to make me statistically insignificant. They really, honestly don't see the difference between pushing moral issues and pushing political positions. In fact, sermons on purely moral or spiritual positions are looked askance at, as being perilously close to Godtalk.

At least that's true amongst the churches that were Unitarian before the merger. There's a former Universalist church here that I've attended now and then that I wouldn't be surprised if they formally dissociate from the UUA someday.

You mean right wing churches present both sides when they have talks at their churches?
