The UCC is congregational; you joined your local church which is aligned with other churches through the UCC. Only your church, as a distinct body, can be a member of the UCC - individuals cannot.

O gee, the Church doing Unethical things... How insanely shocking and original. If you didn't note my sarcasm here, let me add to the list of other unethical things the great churches have done throughout time. I guess their pie in the sky ideas are no better than that of GREEDY CORPORATIONS. The exception? They try to preach morality and "GOD" with their hands WIDE OPEN and their Morals saying one thing, while doing another......

Outstanding Ethics awards to the church:

Assisting Genocidal Leaders trying to Exterminate Races of People. A La 1945 and Hiter.

**** Douchey Award!!! *****

Or How about this Guy. He takes the

***Biggest Asshole Award*****

A prominent American televangelist and outspoken supporter of Israel publicly apologized Friday for remarking that the Holocaust was the work of divine providence, and that "God sent Adolf Hitler to help Jews reach the promised land."

Better yet....

Maybe more appropriately to Kodiac but point remains. Like it's surprising the Church is involved in acts of impropriety.

I think your point was heard - loudly.

Like any other organization of people. And the UCC isn't exactly known for its "acts of impropriety." Maybe you could take the time to learn a little bit about it (that may make your points more salient to see an exception to the rule).

I googled the UCC and I will take a less harsh tone, seeing they are Protestant.

Which means they do not have the "Tained" past as the rest of "Christianity". However, the Term Christianity is that of Muslim. If one wishes to group all, then all falls on it's shoulders. No matter who or what one wants to argue.

As for the Protestant Denomination, they can be commended for opposing Hitler and their Openness to Gays and acceptance of people, unlike many other denominations of Christianity.

Consequently, I'll refrain from "Ripping them a new one".

However, in the ACT OF FAIRNESS...What they are doing now is some REAL HORSE SH*T that betrays the trust of their congregants and those who look to them for guidance.

In regards to this "ethics award" I'm willing to bet that the people who organized this have no idea about this fellow. Maybe this item will educate them - you never know.

One can hope, but one also should never hold their breath......

As for their "Awareness of this fellow", that's an excuse. I hate to say it, but before I'd put my name to something, I'd damn well check it out in full.

Think of it in terms of cosigning a loan. Would you put your signature down for some stranger who walks up to you and says hey man, I'm short 10,000. Mind helping me out? Highly Unlikely. So why do you put your name to something, you don't examine in full beforehand?

Consequently, either through "Ignorance and failed due diligence" or "Will to Deceive for profit", the UCC has betrayed the trust of it's congregants. There's no getting around that fact.

Is it a fact, though? I'll check with my congregation -even the regional conference- tomorrow and see how they feel about it. I'll bet you a) no one knows and that b) no one cares.
