soldiers in the army of god will be shown @ reed, 11/7 8pm open to all & free. It will be in the Psychology Building rm#105. The film is about the psychos who try and kill doctors and abortion clinics.
This week we are watching the film, SOLDIERS IN THE ARMY OF GOD at 8pm on thursday
(11/7) in psych 105. i am including a brief description at the end of this email.
this should be a really interesting, albeit scary, movie. we hope you can make it.


Since abortion was legalized in 1973, seven people have been killed and more than
150 clinics bombed or set on fire by people who disagreed with Roe v. Wade. Film
SOLDIERS IN THE ARMY OF GOD presents the tin soldiers who are behind more than 2,400
incidents of violence against doctors and abortion clinics in the past 28 years.
This is a story about the people who are not exercising first amendment rights, they
are not trying to "counsel" patients; they are not peaceful picketers. They are -
intentionally, openly and usually without restraint - terrorizing people and
encouraging others to do the same. They joyfully celebrate murder and maiming, hold
banquets and give awards lauding those guilty of arson, bombing and murder, as well
as share how-to-manuals with instructions for building bombs, booby traps and
sniping. And yet it's all done as an act of faith.

...is a Christian terrorist network just like Al Qaida! Instead of carpet-bombing Afghanistan and Iraq, the government could have begun its "war on terrorism" capturing all the Christian fundamentalist bin Ladens right under Washington's nose.

Oh, I forgot-America is a Christian country-can't do that to "our own" terrorists-gotta go after the "Other": weird, strange, un-American religions like Islam.

As the late comedian/social commentator Bill Hicks
said in regards to the pro life movement:

"If you're really so committed to stopping death on this planet, stop blocking abortion clinics, lock arms and block cemetaries."
