In Memory of Coretta Scott King

I'm sure there's more to know about this, especially about Rev. Lowery's sermon, but at this point I'm wondering, "What part did Bush pere et fil object to?" And why?

The Rev. Joseph Lowery, who co-founded the Southern Christian Leadership Conference with Martin Luther King Jr., took a more direct jab at Bush's foreign and domestic policies, drawing head shakes from Bush and his father as they sat behind the pulpit.

"For war, billions more, but no more for the poor," Lowery said, in a take-off of a lyric from Stevie Wonder's song "A Time to Love," which drew a roaring standing ovation.
