Nelson Mandela and Bishop rip into Bush
Woa! Human rights hero and Nobel laurate Nelson Mandela lashed out against Bush's war plans, calling Bush a racist.
Former South African President Nelson Mandela, who Bush has praised as a hero of human rights, joined the chorus of critics by calling Bush arrogant and implying the president was racist for threatening to bypass the United Nations and attack Iraq.And, Bush is getting a taste of his own righteous medicine, as Melvin Talbert, the chief ecumenical officer of the United Methodist Church, will appear in an anti-war ad.
In a statement, Talbert criticized the Bush administration's push toward war to remove Saddam Hussein.Bush, who loves to mention Jesus and God every chance he gets, is also a Methodist. Posted January 30, 2003 09:16 AM | Comments (152)
