The United Church of Christ says the IRS has granted the church a three-week extension to respond to the IRS’s inquiry into events revolving around Obama’s June 2007 appearance. The statement from the UCC said:
Even as the IRS continues its investigation, the Rev. John H. Thomas said the UCC will not shirk from its longstanding tradition of advocating for justice as a fundamental tenet of UCC faith and witness.
“When the church speaks out on issues of justice and peace it is continuing a prophetic witness rooted in the Bible and at the heart of the traditions in American church history that have shaped the United Church of Christ,” Thomas said.
“Labeling this as partisan or political represents a profound misunderstanding of the moral responsibility of the church and its members to be involved in the great and pressing public issues of the day.”
This is UCC-speak for “we intend to use collection dollars from conservatives in our pews to pursue our liberal politics, whether they like it or not. So buzz off.”
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
