The Shameful PC-USA Leadership

I really wish that I could point out errors in this column by Lileks, but sadly I can’t. The leadership of my church, strike that, rather the leadership of my denomination (the leadership of my church is much more sensible), is chock full of leftist touchy-feelies, and stuff like this is the result:

The Presbyterian Church (USA) — not the members, but the learned elders — has announced it will use its stock holdings to target Israel for being mean to the Palestinians.
But they’re not anti-Semites. Heavens, nay. Don’t you dare question their philosemitism! No, they looked at the entire world, including countries that lop off your skull if you convert to Presbyterianism, and what did they choose as the object of their ire? A country the size of a potato chip hanging on the edge of a region noted for despotism and barbarity. By some peculiar coincidence, it happens to be full of Jews.

The General Assembly passes every year resolutions that are far to the left of the individual congregations on various matters, and the local Presbyteries vote them down. It’s caused a lot of dissention and wasted time, and it’s sad. I guess the only people who have the time to belong to the General Assembly are lefty idealists; the rest of us have to work for a living.
Update: But I do have to disagree with Lileks on one point. I don’t think that the PC-USA leadership is consciously anti-semitic; sadly their toeing of the lefty line puts them in the same camp, however.
Thanks to the Blogfaddah for the pointer.

    Aw criminy, you had to say that. Nightfly will be here in a flash…

    Yup, we’re always lying in wait with our dastardly Papism. But a Pope is much to expect, all at once. You can borrow ours for a while to see how you like it before you buy.
