100k for Peace - Sign, Take Action!
« on: September 14, 2007, 06:30:15 PM »
Stop the Bloodshed!
Today, I am proud to share with you that the United Church of Christ has launched a new anti-war campaign website, 100,000 People for Peace. The goal of the campaign is to gather 100,000 petition signatures within the next 53 days.

Just after World Communion Sunday (October 7), I plan to take these 100,000 names with me to Washington, D.C., and present them in person as our unified call for peace to leaders of Congress and members of the Administration.

In order reach our 100,000 goal, we still must collect 93,500 names in the next 7 weeks. If we are successful, this will be the largest online advocacy campaign ever attempted by the UCC, representing a total participation equal to nearly one-tenth of our denominational membership.

Today, I have two urgent requests:

Will you join the Action Team for our '100,000 People for Peace' campaign, so that we can count you among the leaders in this important effort? By joining the Action Team, we'll also keep in closer contact and let you know how things are progressing.

Will you help us spread the word by sending a tell-a-friend message to your congregation, family members and friends? In order to reach this huge goal, we're going to need to count on the miracle of multiplication! Each current signer needs to bring about 16 new signers before October 7.

Gathering 100,000 signatures will not be easy. This is why I'm counting on our committed pastors and lay leaders to join us in this movement for peace and justice. Our call to end the bloodshed in Iraq deserves the church's fullest attention and support.

Sincerely,

The Rev. John H. Thomas
General Minister and President
United Church of Christ

There is only one way to attain peace in the middle east and that is through WAR.  The Muslim Fascists have told us the only way they will stop attacking us is if we convert to Islam. Are you gonna convert? Its time to step up and use the same will,courage,and determination we used to defeat Japan and Germany.

The problem with this, is that the Muslim Fascists don't have a country to declare war on.  No Muslim Fascists from Iraq ever attacked us.  The Taliban did allow Osama safe haven, so that is one area that your logic sort of works -- except that Osama seems to be in Pakistan, which is, ostensibly, an ally of ours.  And -- I should point out, neither Afghanistan or Pakistan is in the Middle East!

I'm definitely not a "Peace-nik".  I've served my time in the Army and fought in Kuwait and Iraq, but the current insanity needs to stop.  Whatever implosion happens in Iraq is Bush's fault and no one else's.  If we didn't have the majority of our "War on Terror" forces in Iraq, we could have them in Afghanistan and maybe even capture/kill Osama.   Just a thought!

And it's attitudes like this that keep the bloodshed going.  The bloodshed of innocents, the raping, etc.  Seems like there's a Bushie among us here.

First, thank you for your military service. I'm sure you have strongly encouraged your own children to "step up" and join the military and their country in the fight against the Islamo-facist. This battle for survival is too important to be left just in the hands of other American's children of will, courage, and determination.
