Methodist Bishops Repent Iraq War 'Complicity'
WASHINGTON -- Ninety-five bishops from President Bush's church said Thursday they repent their "complicity" in the "unjust and immoral" invasion and occupation of Iraq.Yeah, it's nice that after so many people have died (US troops and Iraqi people) they decide "too many were silent". You would think that as "Religious" leaders, they should have been out there shouting from the rooftops how bad war is.
"In the face of the United States administration's rush toward military action based on misleading information, too many of us were silent," said a statement of conscience signed by more than half of the 164 retired and active United Methodist bishops worldwide.
President Bush is a member of the United Methodist Church, according to various published biographies. The White House did not return a request for comment on the bishops' statement...
...Public approval of the war has steadily declined since the United States invaded Iraq in March 2003. At the time, seven of 10 Americans said the U.S. did the right thing. By this October, only four of 10 Americans did, according to CBS polls...I guess the sheeple are changing some of their minds, too. What happened, Koolaid too strong?
