Building a culture of peace

The undeniable wisdom of Icthus:

America's ethic of violence is something the church must now confront. Simply attempting to withdraw itself from the values of the country is not a feasible option, as our culture is so saturated in this violent ethic that it becomes part of the core psychological makeup of our congregants. For its own sake, the church must actively work to stem this cultural destruction. Furthermore, even if withdrawal were possible, to abandon America to its own violent ethic would be cruel and heartless, as the church holds the key to the alternative, that is the way of Jesus Christ, the way of love, humility, forgiveness and reconciliation. It is essential that the church led the way to building a culture of peace in our society that counteracts the current culture of violence.

Right on, bro. Right on.



How can we really say we have faith in X,Y & Z, then support a culture of violence and vengeance when it flies in the face of what who we believe in??

They're not compatible.

I don't think a culture of peace can be built until some disaster happens, for which even the neocons' tame McMedia can't deny neocon responsibility. Only when the trance is shattered will we reality-based folks have any hope of reaching the spellbound masses.
