I'm serious - Jeremiah Wright for UCC President

Thursday, May 01, 2008

Some people think I'm kidding about supporting Jeremiah Wright for United Church of Christ President and General Minister - I'm not. Maybe the way I posted on it while taking jabs at our current leadership made it look less than serious, but I am completely serious.

I receieved a gracious email last night from Lynne Simcox acknowledging receipt of my suggestion and that it would be forwarded to the search committee. I would encourage others to send respectful emails to Lynne suggesting Wright as well by emailing GMPSEARCH@aol.com.

I will also start adding banners and other material to this site to promote Wright - feel free to use the graphics as needed to promote Jeremiah Wright for UCC President and General Minister.

I think its a great idea. Perhaps Rev. Wright can bring that same spirit and energy to Cleveland that he brought to Chicago. He did, after all, create the largest and fastest growing congregation in the UCC.

I'm on board and emailed Lynne as well. Good luck.

And like Commander Taylor, at the end of the day we can proclaim:
"We finally, really did it this time. You maniacs! You blew it up!"

The elevation of someone this divisive to a position of influence within and, let's remember, beyond the UCC's corner of Christendom is anathema to a lot of my thinking. No surprise. :-)

This is just really weird, serious or not.

If you are serious about JW becoming UCC president, which I doubt, you must be either weird or crazy. This is totally incongruous with previous ucctruths ideas. This would be destructive to the UCC, just as JT has been destructive. How could JW be an improvement over JT? I thought the goal of this blog was to improve the UCC.
