The resolution continues by urging its 1.1 million members to join a boycott of games played by the Washington Professional football team.
This is a strong statement and should be replicated many times over by other respected and venerable institutions. I have had the pleasure of meeting Rev. Tim Tutt of the Westmorland UCC church in Bethesda, MD who delivered this sermon on the topic (http://www.westmorelanducc.org/sermons/2014/2/12/should-washingtons-professional-football-team-change-its-name).
We need more sermons like this. Thank you UCC for your leadership.
