"Having worked in the area of peace/war issues, I realize that this is a most unpopular subject but I feel that it is long past the time when the Christian church needs to engage the issue. At a time when we face the most anti-Christian behaviour in war and potential global annihilation, the Church is amiss in not engaging the issue." "The Roman Catholic pope speaks out at times but we seem to fear saying anything. The real question is why ? Either we take back our commitment to love and compassion and peace or we hand that commitment to the secular world and we face the ultimate global war. We have a choice".
