Church attacked by "watchdog" group

See the full story here

The problem with these types of allegations is that they immediately appeal to peoples’ prejudices, and thus the accused are presumed guilty and must prove their innocence.

A word about Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington: Despite their noble-sounding name, please do not mistake this group as being nonpartisan. Last year they released their list of the 20 Most Corrupt Members of Congress. The list consisted of 17 Republicans and just three Democrats. Please.

According to the CREW website its executive director, Melanie Sloan, worked as an aide to Rep. John Conyers (D-MI). He is the one who is most stridently calling for the impeachment of President Bush. Is this an “impartial watchdog group”? No way.

Also according to their website, “Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington targets government officials who sacrifice the common good to special interests.”It looks as though the group is seriously straying from its mission. Pastor Mac Hammond is not a government official. Maybe now they are expanding their mission to go after anyone who disagrees with them politically.
