The Spectacle Blog

Writer and Gatekeeper for Obama

"Once again UCCtruths turns up as a front for conservative groups trying to undermine the ministries of the United Church of Christ. And Jeffery Lord, author of this post? The man who attacks the motives of Rev. Lynn? He was Ronald Reagan's political director at the White House. These are the people pushing an investigation of the UCC. They seek to silence the prophetic voice of churches that disagree with conservative voices on issues of war and peace, poverty and economic justice, and calls for human action to save the world from the effects of human-made global warming. Don't let them win."

This jewel turned up on the blog of the United Church of Christ amidst all the flurry concerning the IRS investigation of the UCC's case of Obamamania. The poster is the Rev. Chuck Currie, surely a good soul. The Rev's obsession, like those of the higher ups of the UCC, is transforming the United Church of Christ into the United Church of American Liberalism. He is also an Obama guy, officially ensconced in Obama-land with the title of writer for People of Faith for Barack. As mentioned in yesterday's article, his Obama position effectively taunts the IRS with his role as gatekeeper to the UCC's blog, where he has, apparently with the approval of the church, blocked the blog UCC Truths from a listing. UCC Truths, of course, has been critical of letting Obama use the UCC pulpit and inviting the IRS investigation. Hey, no problem there.

For the record, UCC Truths to my knowledge has no connection whatsoever to any conservative organization. To say the site, run by a UCC'er who simply has the courage to disagree and speak some truth to power, is a "front" is amusingly typical of the left-wing mindset. But we know what this is really all about, don't we? In the Gospel according to the Rev. Currie and his fellow liberals, "conservative groups" (ya gotta watch those guys) are out there pushing war, poverty, death, destruction, and as much economic injustice as they can get away with. Concerned about all the headway Rev. Currie and his "progressive" buds were making with peace and saving the planet, they craftily summoned the IRS so they could all get back to the real conservative agenda -- death and destruction of planet earth. Makes sense, no? Well, no. But ya gotta love people who think this way. Just don't vote for them.
