United Church of Christ claims that God is calling the church to a new vocation. Seriously.

As if these wolves / goatherds listen to him on anything else!  Their new hobby horse is divesting from fossil fuel investments.  How much money does this shrinking denomination have, anyway?  Uh, shouldn’t they be using it to care for the “least of these?”  That’s pretty capitalistic of them!

Via Why We Divested:

As soon as I read Bill McKibben’s Rolling Stone article on the terrifying math of global warming it was clear to me that the church needed to provide leadership. Bill and I had been arrested twice at the White House protesting the Keystone XL pipeline, and the three days we spent in jail further clarified for me that in response to the reality of climate change, God is calling the church to a new vocation.

The UCC employs people like false teaching, race-baiting Chuck “Jesus is not the only way” Currie, so expectations are obviously low for them.  Their “God is still speaking,” mantra is comical, considering that they typically do the opposite of what He said in the Bible.
