Cush Anthony enriches FCNL with a variety of perspectives: those of a former Maine state legislator, a former FCNL Friend in Washington, an FCNL committee member, and, now, a member of a Unitarian Universalist Church, rather than a Friends meeting. Cush has moved away from Friends in religious practice, but he continues to work with FCNL on policy matters.
When asked why he still turns to FCNL, Cush says he believes it fills a niche in Washington, and that it the strongest and clearest voice for changing U.S. foreign policy. He also appreciates FCNL's remarkable ability to translate religious concerns into policy positions.
Cush brings his enthusiasm for FCNL and its message to Maine with the "War Is Not the Answer" sign on his front lawn and the pin on his lapel. He readily to gives up the pin when someone asks about it, assuring the inquirer, "You can take this one; I have more at home." In this manner, the strong, clear voice of FCNL works its way around Maine and around the country, calling more people to listen.See more network profiles
