Bishop Pricks

Closed Vote methodist-logo.jpg

The SMU Campus Daily reports that Southern Methodist University is wading into how it’s Methodist church parent decides if SMU can host the George W. Bush Presidential Library.

It may come down to hierarchy versus lay church members. The University is an entity of the church, and a regional church committee has signed off on the project. And the Bush Library foundation has gotten ten of the eleven bishops in the region to say the deal will go through.

And that others in the church can screw off.

But opponents are appealing to a regional body meeting in July. They claim church law subjects any decision by other bodies to debate and vote by what is known as the Jurisdictional Conference.
