Action against Iraq "unjustifiable", Anglican Primate says

TORONTO, (February 19) -- Archbishop Michael Peers, Primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, has issued a statement in which he says that military action against Iraq cannot lead to a more stable or peaceful Middle East. He urged church members to pray for "a just and peaceable outcome in this tense situation".
The text of the statement:
"Once again it appears possible that Canada may join with the United States in a punitive attack against Iraq.
"In similar circumstances seven years ago I issued a moral reflection on that action based upon the classic Christian criteria for determining the justifiability of a particular war, and judged by those criteria such aggressive intervention was not justified then.
"I believe that this judgment still stands in the present circumstances and I urge continued diplomatic efforts toward resolution.
"One of the traditional criteria requires that the use of force be proportional to the situation. The proposed military intervention arises from the Iraqi government's continued defiance of United Nations resolutions. Of course, the most satisfactory outcome would be compliance by the Iraqi government with the United Nations resolutions. However, South Africa's defiance during the apartheid years was met with sanctions, not force, and Israel's defiance of UN resolutions about the occupation of Palestinian territory has never been challenged.
"Another criterion calls for discrimination in the use of force, that is, the protection of non-combatants. No guarantees in this area have been offered, and the evidence suggests that Iraqi civilians and civil society will suffer. As well, the United States refuses to rule out the use of nuclear weapons, a gesture which raises yet another spectre.
"Another criterion calls for a reasonable chance of success. The 1991 war may have succeeded in a military sense but did not produce a more peaceful or more stable Middle East, nor did it end the Iraqi violations of the UN resolutions, and I believe the present action has no better prospects for long-term peaceful resolution.
"I appreciate that the Canadian contribution is minimal, but I am nonetheless gravely concerned that the lives of our military personnel are being put at risk in an unjustifiable action.
"I find it impossible to see how long-term peace building and the empowering of the Iraqi people to improve their own circumstances are being served by this exercise.
"I want to associate myself with the concerns expressed by the World Council of Churches in this regard, and to assure all involved, beginning with our military personnel and including all other potential victims, of my prayers for their safety.
"And finally, I urge members of the Anglican Church of Canada to continue in their prayers for a just and peaceable outcome in this tense situation".

Part of: Special Report: The Anglican Military Ordinariate. Commander the Rev. Canon Baxter Park is the Formation Chaplain of the Maritime Forces (Atlantic). He became a military chaplain twenty years ago. "In 1990, after just one year, Park was sent to the Persian Gulf, the first Anglican military chaplain to go into a conflict area since the Korean war. His ministry included the personnel on three Canadian warships. 'I was running a parish on a warship', recalls Park" (p. 7). "'In the old days', explains Park, 'when the ship pulled away from the dock there was very limited interaction between sailors and their families'. Today, thanks to email and cellphones, news of any kind ... is relayed instantly. 'We work closely with chaplains on land and can put a lot of resources towards resolving problems, including the expertise of military social workers and psychologists', says Park" (p. 7). "Today, Park again manages a team of 191 chaplains: six Anglican priests, three Roman Catholic priests, three Catholic laypeople, three United Church ministers, one Baptist minister and a Muslim imam" (p. 7). "There is a sweat lodge and military chaplains work with a Mi'Kmaq elder to provide spiritual care to those who follow a traditional spiritual path. 'Whether you're a believer, Christian, Muslim, Jew of aboriginal, male or female, we are here to demonstrate that we are people who care and who live out our faith daily by caring for the needs of others', says Park" (p. 10).

Notes
"Canadian Anglicans are supporting the work of our military chaplains by video-recording themselves singing the popular Christmas carol, 'Silent Night'. As of Dec. 14, 2010, nearly 500 submissions had been received at the Anglican Church of Canada's national office in Toronto, according to Brian Bukowski, web manager. The videos came from as far away as the peaceful fishing and trapping community of Aklavik, NWT, and war-torn Kandahar in Afghanistan. 'It's exciting, it's great', says Lisa Barry, producer for Anglican Video. Barry edited the submissions and compiled them into a single video. On Christmas Eve day, the compilation video was posted to YouTube for the world to see. The recordings offer 'Silent Night' in French, English, Japanese, Munsee, Inuktitut and Cree" (p. 1). "Funds raised through the project will be used to support the work of the Anglican Military Ordinariate, which ministers to the needs of women and men of the Canadian Forces and their families. There are more than 85 Anglican military chaplains, both clerical and lay, working around the world" (p. 2). "The Silent Night Project was modelled after the 2008 Amazing Grace Project, in which thousands of Anglicans across Canada recorded themselves singing 'Amazing Grace', raising about $100,000 for suicide prevention projects in northern Canada" (p. 2)
