UCC and Disciples Do The Right Thing, Delete Hateful Lenten Document


The Global Ministries of the United Church of Christ and the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) has done the right thing and deleted a page that promoted a dishonest and hateful Lenten Reflection edited by one of its missionaries who works for the YWCA of Palestine. Evidence of the deletion can be seen here. Also, screenshot of the now defunct page can be seen at the top of this entry.

Global Ministries has also deleted the link to the page promoting the document from its newsfeed.

The action came after CAMERA published an article highlighting the problems with the Lenten document (which was in turn covered by The Jerusalem Post).

In addition to highlighting the problems with the text, CAMERA also contacted all of the Conference Ministers in the United Church of Christ and the Disciples of Christ alerting them to the problems with the Lenten Reflection.

The YWCA of Palestine was the first institution that stopped promoting the document. Global Ministries promoted the text for approximately another day after the YWCA stopped promoting it.

CAMERA commends Global Ministries for doing the right thing.
