By their acts he shall know them and so we know them.
Hatred of Judaism is a virus that has infected Christendom for two millennia. It continues to stalk the world despite its most virulent outbreak in Nazi Germany. It should haunt decent Christians for generations to come.
[...] the 2004 GA instructing the church to apply shareholder pressure on corporations to change practices the denomination believes contribute to violence in Israel/Palestine.
If it adopts the GAC’s proposal, more than two dozen pending overtures on the issue of “selective, phased divestment” would be referred to the task force.
The targeted corporations either assist the Israeli military or support the infrastructure of Israel’s illegal settlements in the occupied West Bank. [Murderers of Jews and freedom lovers everywhere are laughing with blood. But you are next my friend, you are next - Atlas.]
The moderator’s proposal will not stall the work of the PC(USA)’s Mission Responsibility Through Investment Committee (MRTI), which is already meeting with executives of some of the targeted companies, including Motorola, which provides cell-phone service to settlers and to the Israeli military. [G-d forbid it should shall such an egregious action, Jew haters can rest easier -Atlas]
The Assembly must vote on any MRTI recommendation to divest.
Ufford-Chase put a revised document before the council yesterday, altered only slightly from the four-page proposal he presented Wednesday. “We’ve not changed the sense of this, just tightened the language,” he said, referring to a group of GAC members who worked on the measure over the last two days. [I'm sure your hatred of the Jews is exactly as it was -Atlas]
Will Spotts, wrote the commentary pasted below in response to yesterday’s decision by the PCUSA General Assembly Council, please read it all.
I lack the words to express my profound disappointment and sorrow at the actions of the General Assembly Council today, April 28, 2006. The Presbyterian News Service is carrying a story by Alexa Smith, “GAC approves suggestion of task force on Israel/Palestine”.
There are more than two dozen overtures on divestment (ranging from endorsement to revocation), providing an opportunity for General Assembly commissioners to actually do their jobs and deliberate on the issue, perhaps, God forbid, even requiring complete and fair information. (Yes, I know this would be a departure from time honored tradition when it comes to Middle East issues . . . but it might be time for a change). Instead of encouraging commissioners to fulfill their responsibilities, the GAC has decided to recommend yet another task force. (What shall we call this one? Perhaps The Juden Hass Task Force?) hat tip Larry R
