UCC president pushes back at Obama church accusation

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.
