We are excited to have Joseph Fitsanakis speak at our adult forum on April 12th (Easter Sunday) and April 19th. Here is a synopsis:

On Easter Sunday, April 12, we will host Joseph Fitsanakis, Ph.D. who will speak on his view of the futility of the use of military might by the United States to accomplish is anti-terrorism goals in the Middle East. It's the first of a two-part presentation.

In synopsis:
For the last eight years, America has been fighting the wrong war, against the wrong people, with false assumptions, using the wrong kinds of weapons. The way it is currently being fought, the so-called “Global War on Terrorism” is unwinnable, no matter how many years the US keeps fighting in it. Joseph Fitsanakis will explore some of the reasons why this is so.
