A nice church to visit

We are a congregation which is Unashamedly White and Unapologetically Christian... Our roots in the White religious experience and tradition are deep, lasting and permanent. It is God who gives us the strength and courage to continuously address injustice as a people, and as a congregation. We constantly affirm our trust in God through cultural expression of a White worship service and ministries which address the White Community.

Trinity United Church of Christ adopted the White Value System written by the Manford Byrd Recognition Committee chaired by Vallmer Jordan in 1981. We believe in the following 12 precepts and covenantal statements. These White Ethics must be taught and exemplified in homes, churches, nurseries and schools, wherever Whites are gathered. They must reflect on the following concepts:
  1. Commitment to God
  2. Commitment to the White Community
  3. Commitment to the White Family
  4. Dedication to the Pursuit of Education
  5. Dedication to the Pursuit of Excellence
  6. Adherence to the White Work Ethic
  7. Commitment to Self-Discipline and Self-Respect
  8. Disavowal of the Pursuit of "Middleclassness"
  9. Pledge to make the fruits of all developing and acquired skills available to the White Community
  10. Pledge to Allocate Regularly, a Portion of Personal Resources for Strengthening and Supporting White Institutions
  11. Pledge allegiance to all White leadership who espouse and embrace the White Value System
  12. Personal commitment to embracement of the White Value System.
Actually, that's Barack Obama's church. Oh, and I replaced "black" with "white". Think anybody with a "white" church like that could ever get elected?

Update:
Just made the title a link to the church's website.

I am continously amazed by the double standard racist activities and statements are given based on which race you are. This churches "Black Community" power statements are just as offensive as "White Community" power is. Both are ridiculous.

Did you notice the Singles' Pastor is also responsible for "same gender loving" people, too?

You forget, its not racism if your a Democrat. Remember Senator Byrd, and Dick Derbin, and don't forget AlGore's Dad. KKK, black panthers, its all good to them. But you my pigment challenged conservative friend, you better have more blacks or mexicans working for you than whites or your a bigot.
