Halter gets a church that doesn't believe in God to endorse him

Anne Johansen sent this email out:
 
Today Halter issued a press release announcing religious leaders' support for Bill Halter and listed 10 Reverends.   Only one reverend's church was identified -  a Unitarian Universalist Minister.  Two paragraphs of the five paragraph press release contained his quotes.  The denomination or church of the other ministers were not named.
 
Does anyone else find this humorous (but sad)  – that Halter gets a minister from a church that is known for not believing in God to endorse him.   That's right, in case you are not aware, according to their own websites, most Unitarian Universalist church members do not believe in God or a supernatural supreme Being, do not believe in the Bible, do not believe in heaven, or life after death and do not believe Jesus Christ is a supernatural being.  Many of their ministers are self ascribed atheists.
 
In fact, sources from their own websites report that most Unitarian Universalists do not consider themselves Christians, and  Unitarian Universalists have been rejected for membership in the American  National Council of Churches. See this link for documentation:   For more documentation see links at the end of the article.
 
Don't confuse Unitarian Universalists with the Biblical Unitarians. Halter's press releases specifically said the pastor endorsing Halter was a Unitarian Universalist minister. Biblical Unitarians do believe in God, Bible, Deity of Jesus Christ, etc.
 
There was nothing in Halter's  press release to indicate that any of the religious reverends supporting Halter were Catholic. Yet Halter graduated from a Catholic high school, was married in a typical Catholic ceremony last January and according to his website  is a member of the Catholic church.  Is it fair to assume that Halter's philosophy on abortion and perhaps gay issues may prevent any Catholics from giving him public support?
 
Halter claims he opposes homosexual marriage and civil unions, but he married in a church this past January that conducts ceremonies for gay and lesbian couples, not called marriage since the law does not allow gay marriages.  For more information and documentation on this fact, see www.whoisbillhalter.com. You will find a great deal of  information on that site that will probably interest you.

This doesn't surprise me. Liberals are known for opposing anybody of the Christian faith. What is surprising, however, is that Halter would be so blatant about it.

I wonder if Halter himself doesn't know what Unitarians actually believe or if he thought Arkansans wouldn't know. It stuns me too that Halter would not know better than to do this. I have not seen his press release on Arkansas Times blog yet, and they usually post them there. I presume they know this is not going to help Halter or they would post it.

This is the most un-Christian of e-mails. Thou shall not bear false witness!

Anne you are a sinner!

There is a special place in hell for people who say and do things cloaked in Christianity.

Our God does not condone your behavior, nor the behavior of the other serpents on this website, like Debbie Pelley.

A special place... A special place in hell waiting for you.

Repent! Repent! Save yourself. The truth will set you free. So far, you've placed yourself in purgatory for failing to be truthful and spreading hate!

The tolerant liberal is here to tell us we are all going to hell! Probably does not even believe in a literal hell. To them its a place where God sends people who tell the hard truth about Democrats!
