UCC Won’t Dine With Ahmadinejad

By on 9.25.08 | 5:27PM

United Church of Christ President John Thomas has issued a statement this afternoon declining to attend the dinner being sponsored by various religious leaders in New York this evening. In words that were quite clear, the UCC president emphatically rejected the idea as not "appropriate to encouraging state to state diplomacy."

He also reveals that the World Council of Churches did not inform its U.S. members prior to the decision to host the event. This decision follows the posting of today's "Dining With Evil" article.

The Thomas statement can be found here at the UCC website.
