Bush Thumbs his Own Church

President Bush blew off calls from his stated denomination, the United Methodist Church for an immediate end to the violence in the Middle East. He not only ignored their pleas, he purposefully went against one of their requests.

All outside states and forces must halt sending arms and military supplies to groups and states involved in the conflict.

Bush accelerated the shipment of precision guided weapons like the ones that struck two Red Cross Ambulances today, killing one and wounding two others.

Why would this “good Christian” President ignore the religious advice of his stated denomination? Why does he thumb their requests? That was a thumb, wasn’t it?
