The Environmental Protection Agency has given $30,000 to a Unitarian church that preaches about “white privilege” and says that America is “structurally racist.”

The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Boca Raton, Florida, received an “environmental justice grant” for education and training about sea level rise and climate change, the agency announced Wednesday.

The grant is to provide “Replicable and Scalable Community Climate Resilience Building in Two Communities in Palm Beach County, Florida.”

“EPA’s environmental justice grants help communities across the country understand and address exposure to multiple environmental harms and risks at the local level,” said Matthew Tejada, the director of the Office of Environmental Justice.

“Addressing the impacts of climate change is a priority for EPA and the projects supported by this year’s grants will help communities prepare for and build resilience to localized climate impacts.”

The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Boca Raton is a “liberal religious community” that currently offers classes on “Being White,” and holds town meetings on Black Lives Matter. The church supports same-sex marriage and has a climate-change working group.

What about separation of church and state?

The separation of church and state doesn't apply to Liberals...

That's why Democrats actively campaign from the pulpit in black churches (something that would get a conservative church shut down in a heartbeat)....

There's no problem here. They're talking about the environment, not religion.

No problem? What if they slip a little God talk in the environment talk? Is it still no problem?

What we have here is an example of progressives breaking the rules when it suits them. Little Sisters of the Poor are in court because obamacare demands even the elderly indigent be provided with vital "healthcare" that is contraception but nuns don't hand out contraception to the people they help. Meanwhile, a Unitarian CHURCH that is on board with FAITH in global warming is given tax dollars.

Here's a link on this church. Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Boca Raton | A LIBERAL RELIGIOUS COMMUNITY

What if? let us know when they actually do it. All sorts of religiously aligned organizations receive federal funds.

Faith- & Community-Based Organizations
You don't seem to get it. The point is, it's a religious group. The govt is giving them money to support their preaching to spread the gospel of global warming. That is not OK according to the First Amendment.
