Artists give Bush pause for thought

Artists Jacques and Lean Coetzer presented a telling message to US President George Bush on his recent visit to the Union Buildings in Pretoria on July 9. With the help of supporters, they displayed a banner reading GOD IS NOT AMERICAN.

When interviewed they explained: "The message is simple: God is not American or Saudi or South African or Swedish or Swazi."
