CHRISTIAN BLOGGER DAVID ROSS has a long post on Stanley Hauerwas’s antiwar sentiments. And scroll up and follow links for an ongoing discussion he’s having with Telford Work. For that matter, go to Telford Work’s page and scroll down for lots of interesting stuff.
Why am I paying so much attention to this? It’s not as if theology is my usual schtick — in fact, I tend to avoid it as my father’s bailiwick. But the previous antiwar movement came out of this kind of Christianity — and much of America’s antiwar left, even the anti-Christian part, is still motivated by these memes even if it doesn’t understand the source. I think it’s important to challenge and discuss these ideas early on; I’m happy that those more qualified, and interested, than I am are now deep in discussion.
