Dorothee Soelle: Teacher of God and Prophetess - by Willy Spieler

The harsh words can be found in “Mysticism and Resistance” (NW 10/83).

The Timid and Intimidated Nature of the Pro-Abortion Movement - by Nick Nile
Not only should abortion be legal but it also is well worth arguing that having children should be made illegal (as in a crime). Now here is a statement even most sleeping Americans would agree is a radical proposition (so radical in fact you almost never encounter it). And yet it is a very practical and sane proposition, even to its extreme, logical outcome, that is allowing our very own human species to become extinguished (as in extinct). After all the ecological system of this world doesn...

At the GA on Sunday, 1/27, approximately 90% of those in attendance expressed an interest in continuing a discussion on the harmful practices of patriarchy at the GA next Sunday, 2/3. I take this to mean that we don’t want these problems to be neglected any longer. Several agenda items have been suggested for this work, and we hope others will critique this list and contribute items of their own. Here are some agenda offerings:

Women Fighting For Their Lives In Egypt - by SCISSION
Women activists in Egypt are more than concerned about threats to rights, about threats to their lives, and they are taking to the streets in Cairo to say so. They are upset about the blind eye the State turns toward violence against women, and they are worried about the new constitution which may pretty much subject them to oppression under Sharia law, as interpreted by the top men of Egypt.
