IRD: civil unions, immigration, nukes

The Institute on Religion and Democracy calls out Sojourners among other members of the “Religious Left” for targeting conservatives in the health-care reform debate.

The IRD provides a quick summary of Presbyterian funds given to ACORN.
IRD President Mark Tooley comments, “As ACORN implodes amid scandal, it will be interesting to learn whether other church agencies funded the activist group.”

Presbyterian and Lutheran Churches cannot come to an agreement about  church standards on homosexuality and marriage. IRD explains that this means ministers are left to decide and that this message of tolerance should be sent to the General Assembly in 2010.

Another article describes a General  Assembly committee’s process of discussing civil unions.
The Governing Board of the National Council of Churches calls for elimination of nuclear weapons, heavily emphasizing the United States’ responsibility while neglecting to put pressure on other countries.
Church officials gather, some ask if civil disobedience is okay in order to spur on long-awaited immigration reform.
