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.
