The Bush Library & The Methodists: Huh?

The Methodist Church General Conference has voted to refer the fight over the Bush Library at Southern Methodist University to it’s regional body.

Initial reports had this as the Library’s end. Then the Dallas News Trailblazers blog rushed to assure:

The Bush lives!

“The Dallas blog Pegasus News is reporting that the “governing body of the United Methodist Church has come out against the George Bush Library being constructed on the campus of Southern Methodist University.”…Only problem is it isn’t true. Instead of approving a petition against the library, the UMC General Conference on Wednesday voted 844-20 to refer the matter to the South Central Jurisdiction’s conference scheduled for July in Dallas.”

Or maybe it’s another step closer to the grave. The Chicago Tribune‘s Swamp says Library opponents call the General Conference a victory that will force a real decision at the South Central meeting.
