Hearty thanks to everyone who donated to this project and who worked for it!  We have been successful beyond our dreams!  In September a first round of ads appeared in religious periodicals like the Christian Century, the National Catholic Reporter, Sojourners and other publications.  Now we are in our final phase. 

On Sunday, October 24, a 1/4 page Dove Ad appeared on the Op Ed page of the New York Times.  We also had similar ads in the A section of the Philadelphia Inquirer and the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

On Thursday, October 28, we placed a full-page ad in two Ohio newspapers, the Columbus Dispatch and the Dayton Daily News

Watch this space for where we go from here.

We have broken the silence.  Let's keep going!

A Call to Recover

America's Moral Character

We are Christians from different communions.
And citizens who span the political spectrum.

We grieve that our nation is not standing for “liberty and justice for all,” nor treating Iraqis as we would be treated. We believe that accountability begins at home, that wise leaders know their mistakes, and that honest leaders admit them. Fear and resentment will never guide us to a just and lasting peace. Any nation that hopes to be “under God” must live for a positive vision of world community, not a blind response to terrorism that tragically makes others see us as if we were terrorists ourselves.

We appeal to the American people to join us in prayer, understanding and action:

But all roads were not explored before we started this ill-considered war.
       Supposedly we went to war:

The time has come to bring this unjust and ill-considered war to an end.

More and more experts agree* that there is no military solution in sight.
       We call immediately for:

   

It is time for full accountability. And time to face reality about the war.
