On October 28, 2002 the Los Angeles Times reported that "led by the Rev. George Regas of the Progressive Religious Partnership, religious spokesmen in Los Angeles this week denounced the prospect of a preemptive war against Iraq as 'immoral, illegal and unwise.' The religious opponents of Bush's policy list a host of secular reasons for their position: Iraq has not declared war on the U.S.; there is no proven connection between Iraq and Al Qaeda terrorists; a war would cost many innocent lives."
