22] – The Working Families Party [] is holding a Ceasefire Now phone bank on Wed., Nov. 29 at 3 PM ET.  Understand that the Palestinian people are distinct from Hamas, and the Israeli people do not represent the Israeli government's actions. The U.S. plays a role by providing military aid to Israel, and we must push for a permanent ceasefire.  Congress is set to vote on a bill that would send $14 billion in US taxpayer money and in US-made weapons to the Israeli military to support its brutal war. This is on top of the $3.5 billion we already send to the Israeli military every year. Israel’s bombing campaign and ground invasion have already killed at least 15,000 Palestinians, most of them women and children, obliterated civilian infrastructure including schools and hospitals, and made entire cities uninhabitable.

  As more and more members of Congress come out for a ceasefire, there’s also growing momentum also to block any further military funding for Israel so long as its human rights abuses continue. There may be a vote in the Senate on such a provision as early as next week. Call your Senator and tell them you oppose US taxpayer dollars and US weapons being sent to the Israeli military to commit war crimes against Palestinian civilians. RSVP at

36] -- The RootsAction Education Fund [] on Wed., Nov. 29 at 8:30 PM ET will do a "Teach-In for Action" on Gaza. Stop the Cycle of Violence in the Middle East.  Register at

   In the face of Israel's U.S.-supported assault in Gaza, resulting in well over 14,000 deaths so far, including several thousand children, the threat of a wider regional conflict is undeniable. These attacks coincide with U.S.-Saudi “security” negotiations, potentially involving military support, with the hope of normalizing Saudi-Israel relations. What's most alarming is Saudi Arabia's request for uranium enrichment—a grave concern given its openness to seeking nuclear weapons if Iran pursues them.  The panel aims to shed light on the ongoing crisis in the Middle East and discuss practical ways to address it and prevent further violence. This teach-in will include a call-to-action requiring our collective attention and engagement.

To be continued.

6] – Another book to consider purchasing is Male Supremacy in the Catholic Church: An Insider’s View by Roy Bourgeois. His new book is both memoir and position-paper, and it makes the case that the Roman Catholic Church is a corrupt system that spits out truth-tellers. The crime he was excommunicated for was attending the ordination ceremony of Janice Sevre-Duszynska in Lexington, Kentucky, in August 2008. The ordination was under the auspices of the Association of Roman Catholic Women Priests.  The Vatican’s response has been to excommunicate any woman who has the audacity to see herself as a priest equal to a male priest. You can purchase a copy from Amazon or by Kindle.

  Here are two quotes to contemplate: “I permit no woman to teach or to have authority over men. She is to keep silent.” – Timothy 1, 2:12-13.  “If the patriarchy that dominates the church is not dismantled and women are not treated as equals, the church will continue to diminish and, eventually, die.” – Roy Bourgeois.

Selective appropriation from indigenous cultures frames our Thanksgiving holiday when we express gratitude, particularly for nature’s gifts. Can we go beyond superficial appropriation of indigenous wisdom? What might we learn that fundamentally changes how we see relationships, sustainability, and our place in the world? Hugh Taft-Morales explores these questions through Robin Wall Kimmerer’s book Braiding Sweetgrass. Hugh serves as Leader of the Philadelphia Ethical Society and the Baltimore Ethical Society and is a member of the Ethical Action Committee of the American Ethical Union (AEU). Visit
