Opinion piece by Mark Turner
In May 2015 Pope Francis said “many powerful people don’t want peace because they live off war.”
As I pointed out in my last post, war has been profitable…
in Feb 2014, Pope Francis was quoted “Every day, in the newspapers, we find wars,” he said, “and the deaths seem to be part of a normal day’s tally. We are accustomed to reading these things.” It seems, he added, “as though the spirit of war has taken control of us.”
What at do you think? Has our perpetual state of war desensitized us to the point that we no longer have a responsibility to even talk about it? As our U.S. Congress won’t even debate war authorization, shall we, as citizens, just accept an endless state of war? I advocate peace.
