Dear Democracy Now! Visitor: We are an independent, ad-free daily news program that serves millions of viewers and listeners each month. Our show is special because we make it our priority to go where the silence is. We put a spotlight on corporate and government abuses of power and lift up the stories of ordinary people working to make change in extraordinary times. We do all of this with just a fraction of the budget and staff of a commercial news show. We do it without ads, corporate sponsorship or government funding. How is this possible? Only with your support. If everyone who visited our website in the next week donated just $15, we would cover all of our operating costs for the year. We can't do it without you. Please donate today. It takes just a couple of minutes to do your part to make sure Democracy Now! is there for you and everybody else.

Tomorrow, 50 to 70 thousand men will gather in Washington’s RFK stadium for a rally of the Promise Keepers, a growing Christian men’s movement. In 1995, 13 different cities hosted these rallies, bring three quarters of a million men to sports arenas to praise the lord and promote the patriarchy. This year, nearly twice that many revivals are scheduled, from Boise, Idaho to Chicago, San Diego to New Orleans, Eugene, Oregon to Jacksonville, Florida. Commentator Lee Quinby of Hobart and William Smith College is concerned about the promises the Promise Keepers intend to keep. Lee Quinby is a professor of English at Hobart and William Smith College. Thanks to Mike Black of WEOS in Geneva New York for his production assistance.
