Irreconcilable Differences

The Canadian Jewish Congress  is trying to hash out its differences with the United Church of Canada (good luck with that, Jews). But since the Ceej is pro-Israel and the UCC, er, ain't, I can't really see much point to the discussion. Sure, the UCC claims that only a "fringe" of its membership is in the grip of rabid Zionhass, but this link on the UCC site asking people to stand up for KAIROS, a lefty church outfit also known as "the NDP at prayer" that has evinced a definite animus toward Israel over the years, shows that the loathing is mainstream; how could it be anything but, given the church's "social justice" mindset?

I give the Ceej huge points for publicly calling them out. No one else seems to have the guts to do so.

Don't you know Jesus was for universal healthcare, the welfare state, refugee rights and open-door immigration policies??

Or no one else can be is, after all, the United Church which, in turn, is the New Democratic Party at prayer.
