OBAMA’S FAR LEFT CHURCH

Story notes “The UCC prides itself as being "out front" on social justice issues, battling civil rights, women's rights and gay rights ahead of the mainstream. One Sunday hymnal equally celebrates male and female images of God. Later from the story: Obama and his wife, Michelle, are members of Trinity United Church of Christ, a South Side church led by the Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr., who teaches members about their African heritage and preaches a theology of black liberation. Conservative pundits say the church espouses white racism. But Obama and Wright say black empowerment doesn't mean white inferiority. (Chicago Sun-Times) Just two years ago, The United Church of Christ debated “the Lordship and divinity of Jesus.” (Mohler)
