Don’t you love election season? Especially the maddening whisper campaigns which on one hand denounce Sen. Obama as a Islamicist Manchurian candidate — if you’ve gotten one of those emails, do let me know — and on the other denounce his church (Trinity UCC, Chicago) as some kind of black racist stronghold. It’s enough to lead a soul to distraction.
The Rev. John Thomas, United Church of Christ General Minister and President, has pushed back in a press statement at UCC.org defending Trinity. A bit slow in coming I think — dates yesterday — and a bit defensive and a tad off-tone, as one might expect. See for yourself.

I did get one, from a Jewish cousin. Didn’t know how to respond but it made me angry. Thanks for posting this.
But what of the accusations that John Thomas consorts with Louis Farrakahn and that sort of thing?
