AAR Petition

On his monthly blog the Dartboard, John Dart mentions the following:

AAR Joint Meetings Petition

The content is that "We the undersigned members of the American Academy of Religion petition the Board of Directors of the AAR to rescind its action taken in April and July 2003 to discontinue concurrent annual meetings with the Society of Biblical Literature." This comes with authority -- it was created by Elaine Pagels and Karen King. But as Dart points out they need to strip out some of these names before submission, and especially Red Butt Monkey, Mel Gibson School of Theology.
