Posted on 02/22/2005 4:42:56 AM PST by SJackson
The National Council of Churches has a long history of supporting Communist causes -- and condemning the United States and Israel.
You know the commies use to say that when they hang the capitalists that the capitalists would sell them the rope.
Transversely, I see it as when people get rich, they send thier offspring to Red Universities and after a generation or two of propaganda by these Ward Churchill clones, they wind up like the middle class Cubans who embraced Castro and wound up loosing all their possessions.....thus awaits the fate of Limosene Liberals.
As one of the leading contributors to the Program to Combat Racism (a program created in 1939 by the NCC-parent group, the World Council of Churches, and discontinued in 1996), the NCC played a central role in subsidizing revolutionary Communist movements in the Third World. Sensitive to the controversy which over the years has enveloped the Program to Combat Racism (PCR), the WCC has consistently declined to divulge both the contributors to, and the recipients of, the program. The WCC has gone so far as to establish an independent budget, the Special Fund to Combat Racism, in order to conceal details about the funding of the program. Despite these efforts, the WCC has not been entirely successful in obscuring the PCRs paper trail. An August 1982 report by Readers Digest revealed that during the 1970s the PCR disbursed over $5 million to some 130 organizations in 30 countries. While the WCC held fast to the claim that the funds were directed solely toward those organizations dedicated to fighting racism, the facts suggested otherwise. According to the Readers Digest report, more than half of the money that went to the PCR wound up in the hands of Communist guerrillas. The report further traced PCR funds to a series of Communist rampages in Africa. During the 1970s, over $78,000 went to Cubas Soviet-sponsored MPLA to foment Communist revolution in Angola; some $120,000 went to the Marxist FRELIMO in Mozambique; and another $832,000 to Namibias Communist regime, the SWAPO; another grant, for $108,000, was funneled to the Patriotic Front in Zimbabwe (then Rhodesia), a Communist guerrilla force whose campaign of indiscriminate terror claimed the lives of 207 white civilians, 1,721 blacks, and nine missionaries as well as their children. In the face of this grim evidence, PCR administratorsmany of whom were culled from the ranks of the NCCcontinued to push the line that, rather than bankrolling Communist death squads, the organization was simply supporting liberation movements. From this position the WCC has never wavered. In an archival overview of the PRC, published in 2004, the WCC dusted off its claim that the main aim of the PCR is to define, propose and carry out ecumenical policies and programs that substantially contribute to the liberation of the victims of racism.
So can we just tell it like it really is now?
The leftwing campaign against 'racism' has long been a smoke screen for promoting COMMUNISM, and has nothing at all to do with anything remotely resembling an effort to help any other race, not at all.
All one has to do is look at what has happened in Zimbabwe, the Congo, Tanzania and Ethiopia, and what is about to burst out in South Africa, and one can see that the left is only concerned with establishing their own control and the fate of those ruled is irrelevant.
Blacks in America have NOT seen any improvement in their lives since the 1950s. Does this mean that segregation is good for them? Obviously not, but the people that became their leadership class in their community has led them to an even worse fate of moral squalor and economic drought. But no one cares as long as it is a black face that leads them, otherwise it is transparently 'racism'.
This all is fine with the leftwing neoMarxists as long as they control the black community/zimbabwe/South Africa, that is all that concerns them, and their own people will suffer because of it. They add these nations like beads on a string totheir collection of American institutions they control, like the educational system, the entertainment industry and the mainstream media. (Notice how they try to pose as the norm, the 'main stream', when they are really leftwing radicals? Maybe we should start calling them the 'Left Stream Media?)
The next nation on the War on Terror after Iran should be Zimbabwe and South Africa, but that will never happen due to all the outrage that will flow from the black leadership who would rather see millions of Africans die than to see them ruled for even one single day by a predominately white military force.
LtCol T had these guys pegged over 25 years ago.

they're after israel and the united states.
you'll have a difficult time explaining this to most jews that vote democrat or christians.
i remember meeting a woman in the early 1980s, m.a. in theology from notre dame, who bragged to me that she was a member of an inside group, allied with liberation theology, that aimed to take over the catholic church.
Precisely why I left the Methodist Church..........
I think the Southern Baptists are the only congregation that refuses to joing the NCC.
Ping to Badray, GeneralHavoc
Thanks for the ping, CG.
Hmmm. Maybe this is the reason why I haven't been to church in such a long time -- they're all aiding and abetting the commies. Phyllis Schlafly warned about the NCC back in the 60s.
Has she ever been wrong?
Get a load of this - Ping!
Sadly, not surprising. The World Council of Chuckleheads supported every Marxist "liberation" all through the Cold War. Those serpents haven't changed their scales one bit. May the lot of them be zotted big-time!
It has come to our attention, that the state of NC is using a program called "Governor's School" to isolate and indoctrinate 15, 16 and 17 yr olds into the tenets of communism. The program targets 800+ of NC's brightest, but still emotionally vulnerable, young people.

NCC General Secretary Welcomes Ruling In Elian's Case
NEW YORK CITY – "Delighted but not surprised" at a federal judge's ruling that only the U.S. attorney general can grant asylum to Elian Gonzalez, National Council of Churches General Secretary Dr. Bob Edgar today said, "I only wish it had come sooner."
"Elian should have been home before Christmas," Dr. Edgar said. "I urge the Immigration and Naturalization Service to move quickly in returning Elian to his father, grandparents and great-grandmother." Dr. Edgar added that he has left a message for I.N.S. Commissioner Doris Meissner indicating that the National Council of Churches stands "ready to help, if needed."
The NCC and Cuban Council of Churches have been working since December – at first quietly and then publicly – for six-year-old Elian's return to his father and extended family in Cardenas, Cuba. "If a parent is loving, caring and not abusive, a child should be with his or her parent, and Juan Miguel Gonzalez is a loving father," Dr. Edgar said.
The Council's efforts on Elian's behalf were particularly intense and time-consuming in January, when an NCC delegation visited Elian's family in Cuba (Jan. 2-5) and then hosted Elian's grandmothers during their mid-January U.S. visit. "It was worth it," Dr. Edgar said, putting the NCC's efforts on Elian's behalf in the context of the ecumenical body's "commitment to and compassion for all children, whether they are in Mozambique, Bangladesh or held in a house in Miami."
Among lessons from the project: "The federal government needs to move more quickly, and there are limits to what governments can do. People-to-people efforts often bear more fruit," Dr. Edgar said.
He said the NCC will continue to work in collaboration with the Cuban Council of Churches for normalization of relations between the United States and Cuba. -end-
Commentary by Bronco Buster
This NCC is the same group that provided Ministers and Preachers for Clinton which he supposedly met with daily during the Impeachment Hearings proclaiming his time of "public contrition".
The NCC is also the group that came forward during the false black church burnings of 1996 that was blamed on a "white conspiracy" by Clinton, and met with Clinton at the White House legitimizing Clinton's baseless claims. Money that was donated to 'Rebuilding the Burnt Churches' by alarmed Americans went to this group, and one of it leaders was later convicted for embezzling nearly $10 million dollars of these donations for his and his wife's personal use.
The NCC never apologized to any of the donors, burnt church leaders, or to the American public for this flagrant misuse of charitable donations, and have just acted as if nothing out of the ordinary had occurred by this massive public trust fraud.
Also, some of the the leaders of this group, along with many other Clinton supporters, each received a free, taxpayers funded, all expenses paid, trip to Africa during Clinton's extravagant, lavish, multi-city, $40 million dollar, break from Impeachment, African trip.
The leaders of the NCC are the leaders of the "Fanatical Religious Left" who approve of practicing homosexual ministers, advocate virulent socialism, love Hillary, are fervent Democrats, and believe that the literal interpretation of the Bible is the basis of Hate Crimes. The only thing the NCC leaders would find wrong with Sodom and Gomorrah is that there were no condoms, and there was no legalized abortion.

Are you certain of this, or did someone just bring it up at the meeting? The Church has held off for YEARS, any attempt to push it toward the NCC or the WCC, even with the prevalence of so many lib Bishops. Many of those libs are gone, so I don't see how the more conservative ones would agree to this.
I watched the WCC vote on EWTN. The irony was that Cardinal Egan voted aginst it as he was very worried about who would do the representing over at WCC. (Probably was afraid a non-homosexual would be sent.) Later Bp. Skystad won the Presidency so I am sure Egan's fears were soothed.
The newer, younger crop of Bishops don't appear to be the die hard, yellow dog Democrats of old. They may not be as 'Traditional' as some might want, but they are a lot more orthodox than the older guys were, and more willing to speak out for the teachings of the Church.
