When UCC ministers roar

"I am deeply concerned about single-issue, anti-abortion voters. I consider them immoral."For me, my concern isn't about the abortion debate, it's about clergy essentially telling people how to vote. Stupid comments like this are no better than Catholic Bishops telling their parishoners about the morality of their voting decisions.
-Rev. Willis E. Elliott as posted at the Washington Post "On Faith"
This one is pretty good too...
"I am trying to understand why America thinks it's okay for a woman to go to four or five colleges before she got her bachelor's degree to compete with a black man who went to Harvard and graduated at the top of his class"The elitism in this is actually pretty funny. By her standard, Abraham Lincoln would not have been qualified to run for President. And what's the message in this to the women who struggle to go to college and have to bounce around to different schools to complete their degrees? According to this Yale grad, only Ivy Leaguers should run for public office I guess.

But she didn't stop there... regarding Obama not referencing MLK during his acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention:
"On the day he accepted the presidential nomination, he could have at least said Martin Luther King's name"I guess this is the "sacred conversation on race" I've been missing.
