Presbyterians speak with forked tongues

"No. We don’t mean to hurt anyone." SLAM!

The Presbyterian Church is selling all its stock invested in three cruel companies - Caterpillar, Motorola Solutions and Hewlett-Packard - for the sin of doing business with Israel in certain areas. Israel must be an especially cruel place.

Let’s see. (1) They allow Arabs to be citizens, vote and be members of the Knesset. Did I miss something? (2) Israel allows gays to practice their life and is the first and only country in Asia to recognize gay marriages that take place elsewhere. Am I getting close? See the Wikipedia article LGBT rights in Israel.

The Presbyterians have conjured up some excuse to punish Israel. I haven’t seen any coherent statement and I am not going to spend my time looking. Oh, they surround their vote of hatred with nice, mushy words. But The Presbyterians intended to damage Israel and they did.
