The United Church of Christ, disappointed that her, "ad of inclusiveness," could not air on television as widely as she had desired, has made the ad available to you on the web, as you can see by the advertisement flashing on my left sidebar. So go ahead, view the ad and then come back here and share your thoughts.
What disappoints me about this ad is that the UCC, in what she says is an attempt to welcome people to her churches, finds it necessary to unfairly portray other churches. Churches that acknowledge that the Bible includes homosexual behavior among the many sexual sins, are portrayed as having bouncers at the door, turning peaceful people away from the worship service based on appearance--including not only people who arrive with someone of the same sex, but also non-whites. If this was really happening across America I would agree with the criticism. But it isn't. The UCC has constructed a straw man.
I would prefer that the UCC either invite people to church in a positive ad and leave it at that, (as the Methodists have done), or engage in meaningful and respectful debate with churches with whom she disagrees. This ad is meant, it seems to me, to make others churches look mean. But by issuing what appears to be an ad hominum attack, she comes off looking pretty mean herself.
So there is my opinion, what's yours?
