The other side of the UCC

This ought to get Jim Hutchins (see below) going:
Leaders of five Mainline Protestant denominations will call on Congress to reject-"as unjust"-President Bush's 2006 federal budget at a press conference on Tuesday, March 8, 2005 at 3:30 p.m. in the West Room of the National Press Club, 529 14th St. NW, 13th Floor.

Participating in the press conference will be the Most Reverend Frank Griswold, Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church USA, the Right Reverend Mark Hanson, Presiding Bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America, the Reverend Dr. Clifton Kirkpatrick, Stated Clerk of the General Assembly, Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), the Reverend Ron Stief for the United Church of Christ and Jim Winkler, General Secretary of the General Board of Church and Society for the United Methodist Church.

The leaders will offer a joint statement followed by individual statements on specific areas of concern regarding the President's 2006 federal budget. The leaders will speak from the context of the teachings of Jesus Christ on matters of economic justice. The leaders will also illustrate how the Churches are doing their part to serve the working poor of the nation and reject the notion that faith-based organization can alone turn back the rising tide of poverty at home and abroad. After the press conference, the leaders will be available answer questions from media.
