Tonight on PBS

Bill Moyers is interviewing the Rev. Jeremiah Wright. Hopefully this will put to rest (though I seriously doubt it) all of the controversy, insanity, and charges of "un-Americanism" that keeps on coming up during this Presidential campaign. Here's the Bill Moyers page, if you'd like to learn more.

This is particularly important to One Ring and myself, since we're both UCC clergy. The UCC is an incredibly diverse Christian denomination, and actually welcomes (wonder of wonders!) differing opinions. The trouble is, the rest of the world doesn't seem to understand that, and thinks that if one pastor says something, the rest of the denomination - let alone the members of that pastor's church - all agree without thinking. Believe me, as someone who has been on both sides of the pulpit, nothing - and I mean nothing! - could be further from the truth.
