What is it with the Presbyterians?

My research this spring has been mainly focused on Presbyterians. On a recent trip to Albuquerque, I visited the New Mexico Holocaust and Intolerance Museum. The Presbyterians were accused of cultural genocide because of their role in Indian Boarding Schools. Presbyterians were involved in three Indian Boarding School in the state, one of which still exists, although its ties with the church are looser. I am hoping to get this article published soon.

In last month's Nation magazine, Presbyterians were accused of anti-Semitism in an ad posted by FLAME, Facts and Logic About the Middle East. Presbyterians have made some incredible blunders in the past few years. I thought they just alienated gays, but they've caused offense to Jewish groups. Way to go, PC(USA)!
