Pres. Bush–white guy Methodist?

Maureen Dowd quotes remarks President Bush made in the UK about his legacy. He said he will leave behind “multilateralism in dealing with tyrants,” according to Dowd’s column today. And he’s afflicted by “hopeless idealism” about Iraq and Iran.

But the most curious remark Dowd quotes is his reference to his “Methodist” (the complete name of the denomination is The United Methodist Church) faith connection:  “There is some who say that perhaps freedom is not universal,” he asserted, adding that he rejected as elitist the notion that “’maybe it’s only, you know, white-guy Methodists who are capable of self-government.’”

What???
