Do As I Say, Not As I Do: Famous Presbyterians Who Engaged in "Non Peaceful Pursuits"
In June, the Presbyterian Church voted to divest in three companies doing business in Israel which are accused of non peaceful pursuits. To date, the church has divested in no other country.
It might make sense for a church to divest in companies engaged in "non peaceful pursuits." Such pursuits invariably present moral complications. This makes particular sense if the church is pacifist. But Presbyterians aren't pacifists. Presumably some wars are to be considered "just wars," especially if they are led by or started by Presbyterians.
Famous Presbyterians who have engaged in non peaceful pursuits include:
J. Edgar Hoover, James K. Polk, Andrew Jackson, Stonewall Jackson, George Armstrong Custer, John Wayne, Henry Ford, Robert McNamara, Dwight David Eisenhower, Woodrow Wilson, Dan Quayle and Marvin Laird.
The church continues to hold investments in companies doing business in Syria, Iran, Turkey, China and Russia and other countries which oppress Christians.
Therefore, it appears that Presbyterians expect Jews to be the world's only Christians.
