**********SPONSORED MESSAGE**********

Understanding the Aims of the Theocratic Right--Oct. 21/22 Today, the
religious right is more powerful than ever. Yet few people outside the Bible
Belt understand the movement's deeper aims and objectives. This pioneering
seminar will explore the uncharted territory of what happens when current
events are conflated with biblical prophecy and the world is seen as an
arena for the ultimate struggle between God and Satan. How this framework is
currently informing US policy, both at home and overseas, will be discussed
by the expert panel featuring Nation writers Chris Hedges and Esther Kaplan
along with Chip Berlet. Michael Northcott and Frederick Clarkson. Staged by
the Open Center in NYC at the CUNY Graduate Center on October 21 and 22.
