When President Obama speaks of his "Christian faith", we must remember the church of which he attended for twenty years under the notorious Jeremiah Wright. Trinity U.C.C. is part of the United Church of Christ which takes some rather bizarre positions on key issues.
Before becoming a Bible-believing Christian, I belonged to the United Church of Christ and was married in that denomination. Of course, I was a wacko liberal in those days. But, I have since seen the light. In fact, when my husband and I chose to leave the U.C.C., our pastor showed up at our house on two different occasions trying to talk us out of leaving. And it wasn't as though we were donating large sums of money in the offering plate during that era of our lives.
Not once did I hear from the U.C.C. pulpit the message that all have sinned and need to ask for forgiveness in order to be saved from sin and receive eternal life. It was just a general discussion of faith with no specifics mentioned.
Nevertheless, back to the positions taken by this particular denomination. They fit in beautifully with those of President Obama. No wonder he felt so comfortable at his church. The Reverend Barry Lynn from the Americans United for the Separation of Church and State is an ordained minister with the U.C.C. No surprise there.
In 1971, two years before abortion became the law of the land, the U.C.C. took a stand in favor of abortion and even supports the gruesome partial-birth abortion procedure, not to mention including abortion in healthcare coverage. In 1976, the U.C.C. defended gay marriage. Nobody was discussing the topic in 1976, but the U.C.C. thought it should become legal.
