THE PROGRESSIVE has laid out its case against war in Iraq.
I’m not very persuaded by the invocation of Christian “just war” doctrine. That’s because (1) I don’t agree that an invasion would violate it; and (2) I don’t believe foreign (or domestic) policy should be driven by religious dogma. And I don’t really think The Progressive does either, most of the time.
