Lenten Reflection 4: Just War


“The first weapon of war is the lie. The first casualty of war is the truth. These two universally known and historically validated facts are truths that Christian Just War theory, Christian Just Warists, and Christian Just War Churches are adamantly and chronically culpably blind to. And this, despite the verifiable fact that this head-inthe-sand moral posture has resulted in and is resulting in Christians destroying tens of millions of human beings and inflicting intolerable human suffering on tens of millions of others by their ostrich-based Just War morality. Morally culpable self-deception is refusing to look because I know I won’t see what I want to see.” Rev. Emmanuel Charles McCarthy
This ten-minute video talk is the fourth part in a series of Lenten reflections by Rev. Emmanuel Charles McCarthy.
