National Council of Churches Opposes War
United Methodist Bishop Melvin Talbert is featured in a new anti-war ad sponsored by the National Council of Churches. Both President Bush and Vice President Cheney are members of the United Methodist Church. The National Council of Churches consists of 36 denominations which collectively have over 140,000 local congregations and 50 million members. In addition to United Methodists, it includes the Episcopal Church, the Presbyterian Churcn, several Baptist and Lutheran denominations, Quakers, United Church of Christ, and many others. Not included are Catholics, but the Pope has already expressed opposition to the war. So the next time you get into a discussion about war with Iraq with a Christian who says he supports it, chances are he is disagreeing with his own church. These two web pages, the National Council of Churches home page and their list of member churches would make an excellent two-sided flyer to give to Christians who say they are supporting Bush.
