Presbyterians show a little moral fiber
« on: June 26, 2014, 11:23:38 AM »
The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) voted on Friday to divest from U.S. companies linked to Israel's occupation of Palestine.

The vote by the church's General Assembly passed by a narrow margin—310-303—and means it will divest its holdings from Caterpillar Inc., Hewlett-Packard and Motorola Solutions, an amount reported as being $21 million.
What's true is already so. Owning up to it does not make it worse.

The Presbyterian Church is pretty SPAG about several issues.  They are pro choice, they ordain homosexuals and just voted to perform same sex marriages.  That is why I liked that denomination.  I am still welcome to sing in the choir at the church where I used to go even though I told the asst pastor & choir director I no longer believe.
It doesn't make sense to let go of something you've had for so long.  But it also doesn't make sense to hold on when there's actually nothing there.
