Spotlight on torture

I'm too absorbed with the Superferry. There are other important things to write about!

Here is an event announcement circulated via email from The Interfaith Alliance of Hawaii:


A free film showing

“Ghosts of Abud Chraib”

A documentary by Rory Kennedy

Monday October 22 at 7 p.m. 
The Buddhist Study Center
1436 University Avenue

and again  

Wednesday October 24 at 7 p.m.

The First Unitarian Church
2500 Pali Highway

This is part of a nationwide showing in more than 500 temples and churches. It is sponsored by the National Religious Campaign Against Torture, made up of more than 130 religious organizations representing an unprecedented diversity of U.S. religious life and includes Elie Weisel, Pastor Rick Warren, Syyid Syeed, Theodore Cardinal McCariick and Jimmy Carter.

The message is that torture is a moral issue and is always wrong – with no exceptions. The film probes the psychology of how typical American men and women came to commit these atrocious acts. Ultimately, the film asks what these events say about America, our government, the military and human nature.

The events are co-sponsored locally by The Interfaith Alliance Hawaii, The Buddhist Study Center, and The First Unitarian Church.

Requiring those Captcha codes at least temporarily, in the hopes that it quells the flood of comment spam I've been receiving.
