UCC fueling Anti-Semitism

Tuesday, June 12, 2007

"Zealotry acquaints us with strange bedfellows, and in their loathing of Israel some without a grain of anti-Semitism in their bodies lie down with others who are composed of almost nothing else." - The Independent, UK

This is going to be a bitter pill for some to swallow but it's time to understand that some UCC leaders (and your OCWM monies) are fueling anti-Semitism.

Yes, our denomination... the one that professes God's love for everyone unconditionally... was an endorser to this weekend's small rally in Washington D.C. titled "The World Says No to Israeli Occupation!". Here are some pictures from the rally:

(I scrambled the first letter on the sign but you can see the original picture on Solomonia's blog)


The UCC didn't just endorse the event... the UCC's Rev. Diane Ford Jones is on the rally's steering committee and was a speaker. According to UCC.org last month, "The Rev. Diane Ford Jones serves in the national setting of the United Church of Christ as minister of communication and mission education for the Justice and Witness Ministries in Cleveland."


I imagine some of you will say that you cannot connect the extremists and the clearly anti-Semitic with the UCC based only on our endorsement of the event, our having representation on the steering committee for the event and by having a representative speak at the event. But consider this: If the KKK showed up to support the rally, would we be silent about it?

I'm 40 years old. My mother is active in her UCC church and always has been. I attended UCC church growing up. I am also married to a Jewish woman. This makes me sick.
