4400, and counting...

That is the number of signatures already collected on the United Methodist Church based petition to stop the Bush Library from landing at Southern Methodist University. Signed by Bishops, Ministers, Catholics, Atheists, and more, this petition is a clear message of disenchantment. Go take a look, read and sign if you like, but recognize the sentiment at least.


We the undersigned express our objection to the prospect of the George W. Bush library, museum, and think tank being established at Southern Methodist University. As United Methodists, we believe that the linking of his presidency with a university bearing the Methodist name is utterly inappropriate. We urge the Board of Trustees of Southern Methodist University and the South Central Jurisdiction of The United Methodist Church to reject this project.
