On Saturday, October 2, there’s going to be a march in Washington that sounds like it’s going to consist of far left primal scream therapy. The General Board of Church and Society of the United Methodist Church is trumpeting its participation and that of some of its usual allies:

The United Methodist General Board of Church & Society is among a diverse group of supporters of a march on Saturday, Oct. 2, to demonstrate re-commitment to change in the United States. Persons from across the country will gather at the Lincoln Memorial for “One Nation Working Together for Jobs, Justice and Education for All.”

The march will feature faith leaders, environmental and peace activists, human and civil rights leaders, labor leaders, education leaders, celebrities and sports figures gathering to help reorder the U.S.’s national priorities so that investments in people come first.

Some other supporters of the march include American Friends Service Committee, Pax Christi USA, Jewish Funds for Justice, Sojourners, Human Rights Campaign, U.S. Human Rights Network, National Assn. for the Advancement of Colored People, National Urban League, National Council of La Raza, Interfaith Worker Justice, National Education Assn., AFL-CIO, and Communications Workers of America.

Oh, that’s just a start, folks. This one promises to be the mother-of-all-far-left shindigs. Among the partners the GBCS newsletter does not mention:

Code Pink

Committee of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism

Nice playmates you got there, GBCS–not just garden-variety liberals, but all kinds of totalitarian and anti-Semitic, not to mention anti-Christian, wackos. I also think it’s interesting, not to mention sad, who the formerly staunchly anti-Communist, pro-Israel American labor movement is comfortable associating with these days.

Surprisingly, there doesn’t seem to be an representation from the National Council of Churches, the Episcopal Church, or the PCUSA, but there’s still time for them to get in on the party.
