Christians and Jews Rally Together 

In response to the obscenity featured below, about 100 Christians and Jews rallied outside the Lovingway (sic) Pentacostal Church tonight. Among the speakers was Bill McCartney, founder of PromiseKeepers and former football coach at the University of Colorado. I suspect recruiting practices were a little different then.

9News was reporting that the church had changed the sign to something rather less offensive this evening. Ironically, every major Jewish leadership organization not only failed to support the rally, but put out a press release actively opposing it. This includes the local chapter of the Anti-Defamation League, responsible for helping to create the mess in the first place. The ADL has been AWOL for years on this stuff. They'd rather protest a movie they haven't seen, which may or may not be a problem, than show up to protest an actual sign that is an actual problem, that everyone can see. In the end, not only did people show up anyway, but the rally got results that a pallid press release from the "Colorado Council of Churches" could only hope to get.
