  • Phyllis' Travel Schedule for Fall 2005

    Phyllis is on the road again, giving her much talked about lecture "Sex, Religion, and Politics: The Growing Danger of American Theocracy" (recently featured in The Nation and The Huffington Post).

    In this talk, Phyllis discusses the expanding threat posed by religious fundamentalism to the Pagan and Wiccan communities, and to the basic liberties of all Americans. Since the 2004 elections, the agenda of the Theocratic Right has come aggressively into the forefront of American politics and its impact is already affecting the lives of millions. We'll examine who the players are, what they believe -- including the specific dangers of Dominion Theology and the Rapture --what their religious and political goals are, and the political alliances they've forged. We'll also look at the role of the media and examine how the strategies used by the Religious Right can be re-appropriated by our community in its new role in the politics of America. You can't afford to miss this discussion. It's time to get organized.

        Phyllis In Philly 10/15

        Phyllis will be in the Philadelphia area for several events on Saturday, October 15th. The evening lecture hall holds 180+ people. We hope to see you all there.

        Phyllis will be signing copies of her latest book, "The Love Spell" at the following stores:

        Aphrodite's Dove noon - 2 p.m.
        713 West Ave., Jenkintown, PA
        (215) 886-5996
        www.aphroditesdove.com

        Morgan's Cauldron 3:30 - 5:30 p.m.
        509 S. 6th St., Philadelphia, PA
        (215) 923-5264
        www.morganscauldron.com


        Delaware Valley Pagan Network 7 p.m.
        Ethical Society Building, 1906 S. Rittenhouse Sq., Philadelphia, PA
        (267) 255-8698
        http://netwind.org/American_Theocracy.html

        In her only talk in the Philadelphia area, Phyllis will be giving her giving her much talked about lecture "Sex, Religion, and Politics: The Growing Danger of American Theocracy" (recently featured in The Nation and The Huffington Post).

        Phyllis will address what media and politicians are afraid to: the growing threat to our First Amendment rights and democratic freedoms. The alliance of Neo-Conservative strategists and the Theocratic Right is coming aggressively into the forefront of American politics,
        affecting the lives of millions in our spiritual community as well as the broader mainstream.

        Curott will examine who these groups and individuals are, the political partnerships they've forged and, in their own words, what they believe, what those in power plan to do and how they intend to accomplish it.

        The New Deal is under attack, as is the separation of church and state, and Interfaith, Gay and Feminist movements, Pagans, freethinkers and other non-fundamentalists are already suffering an increase in incidents of legal attack, harassment, censorship, and marginalization. While many of us are rightfully concerned about legal protections for gay marriage and threats to overturn Roe v. Wade, in time these may become the least of our concerns.

        This talk is not "anti-Christian, " nor is it an attack on the Republican Party. It is, however, an over-due discussion of how fundamentalism — regardless of which religion it arises in — is not religion. It's politics. In fact, it's totalitarianism and needs to be responded to as such, particularly when it aligns itself with authoritarian politicians.

        Many faith traditions and social minorities share a need to protect a culture of pluralism and tolerance. Together, we need to find alternative values, new ideas, a fresh agenda and a course of activism for our communities in their new role in the politics of America.

        You can't afford to miss this discussion. It's time for all non-theocratic Americans to get organized.
