Fundamentalism

What’s behind the ascendancy of the religious right? Will we end up with prayer in our schools and the Ten Commandments in front of City Hall?

Our October speaker will be Rev. John T. Morehouse, Minister at the Pacific Unitarian Church. Reverend Morehouse will speak on “Responding to Fundamentalism.”

Public Forum on Nuclear Issues

The Environmental Priorities Network will host its eleventh Public Forum on Friday, November 11th, at the Pacific Unitarian Church, 5621 Montemalaga Drive, in Rancho Palos Verdes.

The Unitarian Social Justice Committee and the South Coast Interfaith Council are cosponsoring the meeting. Our speaker will be Rochelle Becker, Executive Director of the Alliance for Nuclear Responsibility, who will speak on the serious threats posed by nuclear electrical generating plants. They cannot be considered a safe way to reduce global warming since they will cause nuclear pollution far into the future.

In late September, Ms. Becker attended a meeting in the Ukraine to plan a commemoration of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, and she will share the information from that conference with us.

A reception at 6:30 PM will include refreshments and drinks. The talk will begin at 7:30, followed by a question and answer period.

A donation of $5.00 is requested but no one will be turned away. All interested community members are invited to attend.

To arrange for a table at the event, or for more information, please contact Lillian Light at 3l0-545-l384 or contact lklight @ verizon.net.
