Methodist Ministers Try To Stop Bush Library

Most universities in the United States would be greatly honoured to have the personal papers of a former president housed in a Presidential Library on their campus. Not so in the case of President George W. Bush.

A group of Methodist ministers from across the country have launched an online petition drive Thursday urging Southern Methodist University to stop trying to land George W. Bush's presidential library.

The petition, on a newly created Web site, says that "as United Methodists, we believe that the linking of his presidency with a university bearing the Methodist name is utterly inappropriate."

"Methodists have a long history of social conscience, so questions about the conduct of this president are very concerning," said one of the petition's organizers, the Rev. Andrew J. Weaver of New York, who graduated from SMU's Perkins School of Theology.

I think that the Arlington National Cemetery should be renamed after this illustrious war president.
