On The Line

On Wednesday, April 2nd, 2008 I had the rare pleasure of meeting Father Roy Bourgeois, founder of School of the Americas aka WHINSEC Watch, from who I obtained the DVD video entitled:
ON THE LINE

ON THE LINE is an inside look at the people behind one of the largest nonviolent movements in America today: the movement to close the School of Americas / WHINSEC, a U.S. Army school that trains Latin American soldiers.

In a world where politics, passion, and Constitutional rights collide, protesters discuss their activism, the dark side of U.S. foreign policy, and the challenges of protesting since 9/11.

The principal cast includes:
-Martin Sheen, actor
-Susan Sarandon, actor
-Fr. Roy Bourgeois, Founder of the School of Americas Watch
-John Perkins, author of Confessions of an Economic Hitman
-Bob Barr, political analyst and former U.S. Congressman
-Gerry Webber, ACLU Georgia

See you have the newsletter johnnycivil and I’m assuming you voted on the blog.

Thanks for that, but what I’d really like to see is a push to post the link for the DVD.

Peace,

Bump for Peace.

I always enjoy your contributions.

The book, Confessions of an Economic Hitman, was one of the best books I’ve ever read.

Bob Barr is a surprise for me. I saw him the other day on television. He has formed an exploratory committee, he might run for president as a Libertarian.

Did you know that President Clinton signed into law the closure of the SOA, and the creation of the WHINSEC?

GWHunta @ 04/15/08 21:10:31

Tomorrow will begin the first day of a four day fast whereby we all consider our commitment to non-violent solutions to the problems faced by modern humanity and our individual responsibilities to do what is morally right in the face of seemingly overwhelming problems around the globe.

While this particular movement is for the closing of the WHINSEC, we might all take the time to consider just how simply we can make changes to ourselves, our thinking and our habits to change our circumstances not only for our own benefit, but for countless others and our planet as a whole.

Tomorrow,

DON’T Do Something To Save The Planet

DON’T Do It for………

And so it begins…….

GWHunta is on the line.

Father Roy Bourgeois is on the line.

Roy Bourgeois threatened with excommunication

Sometimes no Peace

If Father Bourgeois is excommunicated at the end of 30 days, it would come just before the mass rally and protest against the U.S. Army’s School of the Americas at Fort Benning, Ga., that Bourgeois has organized for 19 years. In recent years, more than 15,000 people, many of them Catholic university students, have joined the three daylong rally and demonstration.

Bourgeois received notification Oct. 21.

Does the timing reveal the true motives of those demanding Father Bourgeois recant his beliefs?

Anyone who has personally met this man already knows the outcome of this unfolding and tragic dilemma.

Peace,

Imagine a Catholic Church

Imagine a Catholic Church where the entire Priesthood is required to maintain and espouse uniform public opinions on all matters.

Excommunication for public honesty?

This is much of the reason I am no longer a practicing Catholic.

Seems GNN is now On The Line as well.
