Our topic for this meeting was”The Promise Keepers”, moderated by Jeff Smith of the Institute For Global Education. He was introduced by Lanette Grate. Jeff touched briefly on the Promise Keepers authoritarian, male dominated structure but did not dwell on this as it is widely known and the chief criticism to be aired against them. He spoke of PK as the third wave of a theocratic push by the Religious Right. The first was in the Moral Majority, headed by Falwell, followed by Robertson, et. al.
