SMU On The Run?

Future Unknown! bush-location.jpg


Rev. Andrew J. Weaver is a leader in the opposition to the Bush Library at Southern Methodist University. He is responding to claims that the Methodist General Conference vote referring the question to local Methodist leaders is meaningless.

If this vote has no moral or legal force and is, “merely procedural”, why did General Conference bother bringing it to a vote in the first place? …The petition against the Bush project could have been killed in committee, dozens were, but it passed the important Ministry and Higher Education Committee by a vote of 51 to 5. It could have easily been killed on the floor, but it was not. Instead it was formally referred by a vote of 844-20 to the owners of the SMU property.
