Barry Lynn's Silence

Thursday, June 21, 2007

Rev. Ted Weis takes Barry Lynn to task over Americans United for the Separation of Church and State's lack of a response to the $100,000 grant that tax payers in the state of Connecticut had to fork over for our General Synod:
Rev. Lynn says he expressed concern to UCC officials. If so, it was done privately. Nearly a year has past since the grant was announced. Why hasn't Lynn said anything publicly? Why not put public pressure on the State of Connecticut and the UCC? The fact he'd oppose his own denomination would have given him the perception of increased integrity in the public's eye.

Lynn says he opposes rebates and other "indirect" aid. Again, if so, why hasn't he publicly scolded his own liberal denomination for grabbing state cash? Is Lynn's chiding only saved for religious organizations of more conservative persuasion? Lynn's tepid protest now on his blog--which comes only because his silence was given note--is hardly indicative of the bold person of strong conviction that we often see on television.
Weis does a excellent job of summing up the issue and Lynn's hypocritical silence.
