Denominational meddling

I'm sick and tired of hearing about the PCUSA and now the ELCA airing their positions on how Israel defends herself against Palestinian terrorists: U.S. Lutherans Condemn Israeli Barrier.

ORLANDO, Fla. - The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America denounced the security barrier Israel is building along the West Bank, saying Saturday that Israeli policy throughout the territories has brought "extreme hardship" to Palestinians.

The statement, called "Peace Not Walls: Stand for Justice in the Holy Land," is part of an advocacy plan for Mideast peace that delegates to a churchwide assembly adopted on a 668-269 vote.

It was approved at a time of heightened tension between Protestants and Jews.

Several protestant groups have angered Jews by protesting construction of the barrier, and some Christian denominations have considered divestment from companies that profit from Israeli control of the Palestinian territories.

You've both got more to worry about within YOUR walls than Israel's---now start dealing with the perversions of your pews and pulpits and stay out of Israel's business!
