Edited on Wed Sep-20-06 12:33 PM by blm
Catholic/Christian Church?

Catholic/Christian Church meeting hall?

Catholic/Christian College Auditorium?

Non-affiliated meeting hall?

Other - Bear in mind, the audience you wish to access a LARGE number of prolifers who historically are viewed as hostile to liberal viewpoint on abortion.


Thankyou.

1. From behind bullet proof glass
You know how violent those 'pro-lifers' are.

Talking to pro-lifers about changing their position is like trying to talk a dog into being a cat.

2. There comes a day the belly of the beast is entered....
or, in this case, engaged in a respectful, thoughtful way.

4. I would go with the Christian educational institution...
...as they have at least been exposed to the notion that the educational process assumes an analytical attention to antithetical views.

This does not apply at Bob Jones "University" and other totally committed bastions of extremist indoctination, of course. But most "mainstream" or semi-mainstream religious higher education institutions will at least provide a forum.

helpfully,
Bright

I meant Dem lawmakers concerned about the divisive nature of the political battle and looking for intelligent ways to lift the discourse AWAY from the rhetoric and towards compassion and reason.
