Presbyterian Church Slammed By Jews, Christians After Divestment Vote | The Tower

To many Presbyterians and Jews, it was also deeply troubling. Earlier this week, one longtime Israel boycott activist in the Church, Presbyterian minister Larry Grimm, told Jews to leave Israel and that America was really their Promised Land. At the General Assembly itself, a shocked Presbyterian blogger reported that during prayers, Virginia Sheets, the vice moderator of the Middle East issues committee, suggested that Jesus wasnt afraid to tell the Jews when they were wrong.
