As a member, all be it possibly an extreme jack Mormon member, of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, it is my duty to report on what other members are doing in the world. Last Thursday Senator Gordon Smith R-Oregon, broke ranks with the president and withdrew his support of current policy in Iraq. Senator Smith claimed that the policy may be immoral because we continue to employ policies that have failed. I have to hand it to the Senator here— he is speaking plainly and honestly about the war. I get a strong feeling that Iraq will continue to divide the Republican party because of the way it relies on the personal convictions of one of the last Americans who still strongly supports the war —> George W. Bush.
Oh yeah and I bet Gordon Smith can dissent and still be a good Mormon 🙂
