Podcast Episode 4!

John Carmody served as a 2nd Lieutenant Platoon Commander in Vietnam from 1967-68, in an area called Leatherneck Square, nestled near the DMZ. He talks about the “unbridled brutality of war” and explains why it is “a sick process.” He also talks to us about his work with PeaceTrees Vietnam, his thoughts on PTSD and Just War Theory, and how he came to be the Founder and Director of the Center for Christian Nonviolence.

We have a podcast!

You can find us on the top menu, on our podcast website, and on YouTube. Please subscribe to our channel. We hope to conduct more interviews with Catholics who have stood and are standing against militarism.

Our first podcast is an interview with Fr. Emmanuel Charles McCarthy. He speaks to us about his books recently made available in the second edition on Amazon: “All Things Flee Thee for Thou Fleest Me” and “Just War Theory: The Logic of Deceit”.

Additional topics include: Tradition vs. tradition in the Catholic Church; orthodox vs. heterodox beliefs; authority; conscience; and what a person who has the leisure to study owes to the rest of humanity.
