Iraq War 'Unjustifiable', says Bush's Church Head by Ed Vulliamy in New York Oct, 2002
http://www.commondreams.org/headlines02/1020-...
President George Bush's own church has launched a scathing attack on his preparations for war against Iraq, saying they are 'without any justification according to the teachings of Christ'.

Jim Winkler, head of social policy for United Methodists, added that all attempts at a 'dialogue' between the President and his own church over the war had fallen on deaf ears at the White House.

His remarks came as the US continued its efforts to achieve agreement on a UN resolution that would open the way for a tough program of weapons inspections in Iraq. France is believed to be concerned that the current draft resolution might still act as a trigger for military intervention without a full Security Council debate if Iraq fails to comply.

The Methodist Church, he says, is not pacifist, but 'rejects war as a usual means of national policy'. Methodist scriptural doctrine, he added, specifies 'war as a last resort, primarily a defensive thing. And so far as I know, Saddam Hussein has not mobilized military forces along the borders of the US, nor along his own border to invade a neighboring country, nor have any of these countries pleaded for our assistance, not does he have weapons of mass destruction targeted at the US'.

"Why of course the people don't want war... That is understood. But after all it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship ...Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger."

Linda, you are naive. With today's technology you do not need to fortify the border with troops.(not to mention that Sadaam Hussein is not a threat anymore because he is dead.) All we need to do is what Bill Clinton did while in office and that is nothing, to ensure being attacked on our soil again in an even greater display of terrorism. When the USS Cole was attacked, the U.S. embassies, the first attack on the twin towers in NYC, the Clinton admin. decided to let them pass with no retribution or retaliation. These attacks on our country lead to 9-11-01. Enough is enough.

I have never heard an honest Christian church declare war the right thing to do. Bush was doing what was best for the Country, not what his church thought was right. This is what he was elected to do. I am glad he is a man of faith, but he should not let that faith be the only factor in deciding what is right for the Country.

Sometimes in order to save lives, lives have to be placed on the line and even sacrificed. And how many chances do you think we should have given Sadaam? The U.N. gave him 17 chances to comply, which shows how impotent the U.N. is and why it should not be subsidized with our money.

This is BS and you know it. Just another piece of garbage spreading CRAP in an election year.

The Methodiist church has been attacking the US for many years. Protecting the US is not none of their concerns.
