A Republican candidate running for the U.S. House has attacked her primary opponent for being a member of the United Church of Christ. “"The political arm of the UCC is actively waging a fight against Republican values and principles through a well-organized quest to undermine the support that Republican candidates get from what we think of as the Christian Right," wrote candidate Miriam Masullo in a letter to fellow Republicans. Scott MacLean, an ordained UCC minister, has won the Republican nomination for the House seat now held by democrat John B. Larson. Masullo, apparently bitter over her rejection by party leaders, has forced a primary vote in an effort to deny MacLean his party’s official support. United Church News reported on the issue today. Masullo’s website lists the anti-UCC website UCCtruths, a site that often reprints information from the ultra-conservative Republican Party-aligned Institute on Religion and Democracy, as their source for information on the UCC.
