Why I Support the PCUSA Washington Office

The Presbyterian Layman and the IRD would have you believe that the Washington Office is made up of a bunch of cigar smoking Fidel Castro lookalikes making statements reflecting the will of the PCUSA without any regard to what the PCUSA advocates.

The Washington Office has been around since 1946. They do not speak on behalf of right wing groups or of left wing groups in our denomination, but on behalf of the General Assembly. The General Assembly meets once every two years and is made up of delegates from every presbytery. Check out what they are saying on behalf of the PCUSA. It is good and important work.
