The lede story at UUA.org is newsworthy: “Connecticut Interfaith Clergy Bear Witness Against Legislators Supporting Military Commissions Act.”
I’m glad to see it there. I think the Military Commissions Act is a unconstitutional violation of habeas corpus. Moral people should oppose it. So should constitutionalists.
Unitarian Universalists should be proud when others of their own speak up against it. Note that this interfaith group put up a billboard noting which Connecticut senators and representatives voted for the Act. Quite legal and proper.
One is Rep. Nancy Johnson. She is, last I heard, a Unitarian Universalist and yet this fact isn’t metioned in the article. (The only other in the House is Pete Stark, D-CA-13.) It would seem germane, given the denominational-focus of the rest of the piece.
I would expect that kind of detail in a newspaper report; is it fair to demand the same at UUA.org?
