    DALLAS - A group of Methodist ministers from across the nation launched an online petition drive Thursday urging Southern Methodist University to stop trying to land George W. Bush's presidential library.


    "Methodists have a long history of social conscience, so questions about the conduct of this president are very concerning," said one of the petition's organizers, the Rev. Andrew J. Weaver of New York, who graduated from SMU's Perkins School of Theology.

    An art history professor, Janis Bergman-Carton, said, β€œI am afraid we are mortgaging our reputation and our students, actually and symbolically, to an administration that 70 percent of this country thinks is incompetent and unethical.”
