300 organizations are bussing people into D.C. this weekend for the "One Nation, Working Together" political rally. Supporters include Obama's Organizing for America, the United Methodist Church, the United Church of Christ (Rev. Wright's church, for one), the National Baptist Convention and several Jewish organizations.

Also supporting the rally: NAACP, AFT, SEIU and Communist Party USA and Democratic Socialists of America.

Obama’s OFA, Churches Join Democratic Socialists for Saturday March in Washington | The Blaze

They probably will have more than the 8/28 rally. I'm just wondering what the program will be.

Don't know could careless. In fact I hope the same number of people show up that went to Beck's that way the media's head will explode from both events being equally as popular.

Oh yes. The list is right there on the site for everyone to see. Many are supporters of Communism and Socialism.

This is why people are saying that Obama is colluding with Communists and Socalists. You see?

What the hell....
UUA: Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations

Principles

Principios en Espanol

There are seven principles which Unitarian Universalist congregations affirm and promote:

* The inherent worth and dignity of every person;
* Justice, equity and compassion in human relations;
* Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations;
* A free and responsible search for truth and meaning;
* The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large;
* The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all;
* Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.

Unitarian Universalism (UU) draws from many sources:

* Direct experience of that transcending mystery and wonder, affirmed in all cultures, which moves us to a renewal of the spirit and an openness to the forces which create and uphold life;
* Words and deeds of prophetic women and men which challenge us to confront powers and structures of evil with justice, compassion, and the transforming power of love;
* Wisdom from the world's religions which inspires us in our ethical and spiritual life;
* Jewish and Christian teachings which call us to respond to God's love by loving our neighbors as ourselves;
* Humanist teachings which counsel us to heed the guidance of reason and the results of science, and warn us against idolatries of the mind and spirit.
* Spiritual teachings of earth-centered traditions which celebrate the sacred circle of life and instruct us to live in harmony with the rhythms of nature.

These principles and sources of faith are the backbone of our religious community.

It's going to be huge. Did you see that list?
I think the One Nation should be asked to condemn and throw out the communist party and the socialist parties from the rally. But then, that's just me.
I don't any more than should toss out Tea Party orgs.

And the sponsor list does not indicate what you said in what I quoted. So I repeat that question and enhance it:

Does any one except the loony fringe and Beck say crap like that? Is it not just an attempt at political discourse by mindless insult? Or are churches now Socialist/Communist?

This thread is a classic example of trying to demonize those you disagree with by namecalling, by guilt by association, and basically low class politics. It's almost as if Beck himself did it...funny that.

Here is an interesting link, that actually sets out the mission statement of the organization: Mission | One Nation Working Together

Let's see how long it takes for people to cherry pick and condemn these...

It's obviously true because it's right there in front of your face.

Yes, they are voting citizens. Are you deliberately missing the point?

Does Obama have anything to do with this rally?

Are you? You pick out a few groups, 2 of which fall into the socialist/communist heading, and try and paint the whole thing as socialist/communist. I mean, that is some might heroic spin, but does not change the fact that the rally itself is not some communist/socialist rally.

here, let me quote you from the Restore Honor website:

It is recommended that everyone take Metrorail to the event. Car parking is free on Saturdays at all Metrorail stations in the outlying suburbs.
Holy ****, socialism! Beck is a socialist!
