• I’ll be at the Community Church of Boston May 18!

    May 17, 2014

    Posted in: #99Percent, Embassy/State, Iraq

    The Community Church of Boston is kind enough to host me for a morning of reading, book signing, and certainly conversation in connection with my new book, Ghosts of Tom Joad: A Story of the #99Percent. I am very proud to add that my talk is in conjunction with the group’s 2014 Sacco & Vanzetti Award for Social Justice ceremony.

    The Community Church of Boston is at 565 Boylston Street, Boston, MA 02116, Tel. 617-266-6710, very close to Copley Square and the beautiful Boston Public Library. The nearest T stop is Copley Station. The Church of Boston is a a non-sectarian, free community united for the study and practice of universal religion, seeking to apply ethical ideals to individual life and the democratic and cooperative principle to all forms of social and economic life. They’ve been active peace and justice congregation since their founding in 1920.



    Everyone is welcome and there is no charge. There will be a Q&A session where we can talk about the new book, the old book (We Meant Well: How I Helped Lose the Battle for the Hearts and Minds of the Iraqi People) and/or my experiences being run out of my former career with the Department of State as a whistleblower because I wrote about their waste and mismanagement of the Iraq War reconstruction.


    Please come join me at the Community Church!

      “The Church of Boston is a a non-sectarian, free community united for the study and practice of universal religion, seeking to apply ethical ideals to individual life and the democratic and cooperative principle to all forms of social and economic life.”

      Sounds totally cool to me! ;-)

      Sounds like they would agree with this chap:

      PS, Peter, I’m just wondering (tongue protruding through cheek), is the Church of Boston AS DIVERSE in its beliefs, as the Catholics are?

      (I think it was Flannery O’Connor who said, “No I DO NOT believe in organised religion! I’m a Catholic!” Because she knew the Catholic Church is the most DIS-organised religion in the world!)

      Just for fun and comparison, here’s a Catholic self-satire. Please note how it takes the piss out of both the left and right wing nuts. Can the Church of Boston keep up with THIS? ;-):

      More from the Catholic theologian (who dropped out of seminary in the 1970s), Stanford Nutting. Can anyone from the Church of Boston keep up with THIS?:

      And then there’s this (my final comment for today, I promise!)…

      …then there’s THIS, from Monty Python’s “Life of Brian”, about the difference between the LETTER of the law and the SPIRIT of the law! And it’s also a reminder of how and why the Ten Commandments ought to be taken seriously – in spirit – like “thou shalt not kill” (OR TORTURE!):

      What time?! “Morning” is ambiguous. I sure hope the Sunday buses are going to be early enough for I am going! (From Cape Cod)

      The FBI has had these dangerous radicals under surveillance since J Edgar got his first period.
