Lee Zeldin Declines Invitation To Forum On Morality Organized By Local Interfaith Clergy Group

U.S. Representative Lee Zeldin and Perry Gershon
Aug 14, 2018 1:55 PM

U.S. Representative Lee Zeldin has declined to participate in a forum on morality and ethics, which is being hosted by nine East End houses of worship later this month, because of what he says are event organizers’ potential biases.

Chris Boyle, the congressman’s campaign communications director, said he contacted one of the organizers, Rabbi Jan Uhrbach of the Conservative Synagogue of the Hamptons in Bridgehampton, earlier this month via email to explain why Mr. Zeldin would not go to the event, which will be attended by Perry Gershon, his Democratic challenger for the 1st District seat in the House of Representatives.

“The congressman looks forward to impartial, fact-based debates prior to the election,” Mr. Boyle wrote in the email to Rabbi Uhrbach. “Due to your frequent political attacks against the congressman, via public statements, on social media, at protests, in front of his office, in meetings directly with the congressman, and elsewhere, it is extremely unlikely that you would be impartial.”

A few of the participating clergy members have publicly spoken out against Mr. Zeldin and his political beliefs and policies, on social media and at local marches and demonstrations.

Rabbi Uhrbach, however, disputed the premise that the forum would be slanted. She also noted that Mr. Zeldin had declined to participate in a similar event last year, before campaigning began.

“There is a strong need right now for faith leaders to speak up, not to insist that our particular faith be enacted into policy but that voices of faith are able to refocus some of the core discussions of morality,” she said. “I can’t imagine why a candidate would feel that so many different faith communities coming together would not be impartial. This is not one person, and it’s not even just clergy—we represent houses of worship that are very diverse within themselves.”

Mr. Zeldin did not respond to a request for comment, but his campaign released a statement: “My opponent, who recently registered in our district just to run for Congress here, says in his stump speech that his reason for running against me is because of the similarities he sees between the president and Adolf Hitler in Nazi Germany. This can’t become a new normal of an uneducated, desensitized, unhinged lack of decency, perspective, bipartisanship and morality.”

In addition to the Conservative Synagogue of the Hamptons, the event is organized by Bridgehampton Presbyterian Church in Bridgehampton, Calvary Baptist Church in East Hampton, Christ Episcopal Church in Sag Harbor, Hamptons Lutheran Parish in Bridgehampton and Amagansett, Hamptons United Methodist Church in Southampton, Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the South Fork in Bridgehampton, Jewish Center of the Hamptons in East Hampton, and Temple Adas Israel in Sag Harbor.

According to Rabbi Uhrbach, the event, which is scheduled for 7 p.m. on Monday, August 27, at Christ Episcopal Church in Sag Harbor, was organized to allow both candidates in the 1st District an opportunity to engage with their constituents and have a candid conversation on morals and character.

“It’s unfortunate that Zeldin did not accept this invitation—it’s his chance to prove that he will stand up to, and not be a rubber stamp for, President Trump,” Mr. Gershon said in a phone interview. “This is a chance to show our community faith leaders that our elected representatives have concerns for moral values in America at a time when the president is not providing good leadership—and, hopefully, both candidates for congress in New York 1 will attend.”

“The door remains wide open for Congressman Zeldin to participate, and we sincerely hope he will,” said the Reverend Kimberly Quinn Johnson, a participating organizer from the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the South Fork.

As the article mentioned, this is the second such convocation whose invitation The Honorable One has spurned. He has previously canceled a town meeting out here as well because he was afraid that the attendees would be mean to him.

And by "mean", you really mean violent.

I see you missed the passage of H.R 6147 which included millions in funding for Long Island environmental priorities and legislation to protect Plum Island to which Mr. Zeldin was instrumental in securing as co-chair of the Long Island Sound Caucus and founding member of the bipartisan Congressional Estuary Caucus.

Well, the GOP tends to back corporations which pollute streams, creeks, and estuaries. Coal ash spills by Duke Energy, to cite one example. And the proposed gutting/gutting of the EPA by Republicans? Nope, no problem there. Nor with the over 3 million dollars provided to the Republican Governor's Association by Duke Energy post spill. Yet again, nothing to see there, lol...
By Mr. Z (11847), North Sea on Aug 13, 18 10:22 PM
Would that be the Duke Energy that was fined $102 million in 2015 for violations of the 1972 Clean Water Act where the Waters of the United States regulation would have had no deterrent on such a blatant disregard and criminal act? Are you suggesting without evidence there was special treatment solicited, or simply floating another conspiracy theory where no evidence exists?

@ Mr. Snerdley

"Violent"? Rubbish. Show me one citation that substantiates that statement. The Honorable One just couldn't be bothered to answer tough questions by residents of that portion of his congressional district that he has ALWAYS ignored.

Congressman Zeldin’s bill will commission the Government Accountability Office, in consultation with the Department of Homeland Security, which currently “owns” the island, to formulate a comprehensive plan for the future of the island. This legislation requires the plan focus on conservation, education, and research and include alternative uses for the island including a transfer of ownership to another federal agency, the state or local government, a nonprofit, or a combination thereof. Allowing for continued research, public access and permanent preservation of the island, Congressman Zeldin’s bill, H.R. 2182, will suspend laws passed in 2008 and 2011 that mandated the public sale of Plum Island by the federal government to the highest bidder. Congressman Zeldin said, “Today, the House of Representatives passed my bipartisan bill to allow for continued research, public access and permanent preservation of Plum Island. Since taking office in 2015, one of my highest local priorities has been to protect Plum Island. The current law, which mandates the sale of the island to the highest bidder, is the wrong path forward. Preserving this island’s natural beauty, while maintaining a research mission, will continue to provide important economic and environmental benefits to Long Island. It will also ensure that the state of the art research facility at Plum Island does not go to waste. This bill will now be sent to the U.S. Senate. I, along with the bipartisan supporters of this bill in the House from New York and Connecticut, in addition to the 65+ environmental and community organizations in the Preserve Plum Island Coalition, will continue to urge Connecticut and New York's U.S. Senators to get this important bipartisan legislation over the top in their Chamber. We need to get this bill to the President’s desk as soon as possible.”

Well um, no.

You have faithfully reproduced The Honorable One's self-serving construction of H.R.2182 but that construction is but HIS imaginative interpretation of the actual text of the bill (available at "congress.gov") whose stated purpose is exactly what I said it was.

... this funding is essential to the future of Long Island. It does not take any leadership or ingenuity to push these environmental dollars through. Without this, for starters, the LI environment goes down the tubes. These are givens no matter who is in office. For Zeldin NOT to get them would be catastrophic. So in terms of his accomplishments, no biggie.
By William Rodney (561), southampton on Aug 14, 18 9:31 AM
Well hat, why shouldn't Mr. Zeldin claim successes for his efforts - both those that secure funding and which result in improvement to our lives through safeguarding the environment, ecosystem and lifestyle, and even those that hit roadblocks in the political process. Either way, he's still working tirelessly for District 1.

I’m just curious as to who specifically are the Nazis that Uhrbach claims are part of Zeldin’s coalition, whether the claim was intended to be allegorical or not? Does her claim of Zeldin’s complicity to Nazism extend to the voter as well? Even if her statement was allegorical, for a member of the clergy to make such a statement is more than a bit prickly.

The JTS and Uhrbach's movement is dying in America and throughout the world. And, for good reason.
