Unitarian Universalist Service Committee's blog removes their Problems in American Democracy post

Go back to my post UUSC should retract.... (should I nail the rest on a door in Boston?) and click on the link to UUSC Blog's post on The Problems in American Democracy and you'll see the problem's gone.

The best tradition of the blogesphere is what goes on the net, stays on the net; even when it's egg on the face.

UUSC blog can not be faithful to this mission,

The Unitarian Universalist Service Committee advances human rights and social justice around the world, partnering with those who confront unjust power structures and mobilizing to challenge oppressive policies.

if they themselves, as a power structure in our Church, hide rather than confront a lie they spread among their readers.

Or in cruder terms they use, spit on the blogesphere, and the blogesphere might just spit back; or throw an egg or too with a laugh.

Laugh and then reflect on heoric folks like Akbar Ganji on hunger strikes for human rights and social justice.

The UUSC will become useless and irrelevant, unread by anyone, if you don't deal with your mistakes and explain to your readers how you goofed here. You owe it the Unitarian Universalists who took you seriously here.
