Other than being a sign of the times, this really is a digressive event. The UCC is already a decaying shell of its former beliefs and its admission of a homosexual church simply sinks the ship to even lower depths of religious idiocy. Interestingly enough, the Advocate pegged the UCC as a "mainstream" denomination. Hardly. The UCC has been bleeding heavily since its fanatical push to legitimize homosexual conduct. The COH was hailed as fourth largest church in the UCC. The others are a pair of black churches in Chicago and metro Atlanta, who joined the UCC after abandoning traditional Christan belief over homosexuality. The Chicago church, Trinity, is home to the Democrat's golden boy Barack Obama.
If you are not familiar with Dallas' Cathedral of Hope, it is anything but. Its founder and pastor Michael Piazza was criticized for taking trips to sex clubs in California without his so-called husband and then threw the church into chaos over money and power mongering.
