United Church of Christ: Lying to the People in the Pews

The United Church of Christ (UCC), a liberal Protestant church with roots that go back to the Mayflower, is at it again. During the first few days of July 2017, the denomination’s deliberative body, the General Synod, will gather in Baltimore Maryland. The General Synod will approve the denomination’s budget and vote on some proposals that determine how the church’s national bureaucracy will be reorganized. The synod will also vote on a number of resolutions that call on the denomination’s officers and local churches to advocate for particular social causes that the assembly deems important.
