While some praise the Promise Keepers, who recently held a massive rally on the National Mall, for their call for Christian men to renew their commitment to family and God, others say the group has an underlying anti-woman agenda. What do you think?

  • “I was at the rally, and when I realized all the sins I had committed, I began to pray and weep hysterically. Then I accused Goody Brewster and Tituba the slave girl of witchcraft and began to whirl around uncontrollably and stab random people.”

  • “Personally, I'm scared by these Promise Keepers. They go against everything I learned and felt at Lilith Fair.”

  • “What's wrong with a group of men finally standing up and taking responsibility for their wives' actions?”

  • “The Promise Keepers represent a wide spectrum of Christian men, ranging from those who wear blue polo shirts with tan, pleated pants to those who prefer tan polos with dark pants.”

  • “I have not seen that many white men weep openly since Tom Watson double-bogeyed on the 18th at last year's Masters.”

  • “As a Freemason, I see nothing threatening about an insular, patriarchal belief system. Please pass the ceremonial chalice and blade.”
