‘U.S. should immediately end its evil wars in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq and Libya, bring all its troops home, dismantle its nuclear weapons, close its military bases, feed the world’s poor,’ says Father John Dear, S.J.

  The American Jesuit priest is an ardent Christian pacifist, a person who tries to live the challenging Sermon on the Mount of Jesus Christ every day.

  In his latest reflections on the killing of someone Emperor Obushama claims was Osama Bin Laden, Father John insists that Christ’s non-violent response would never be one of revenge or war.

  He calls for all the futile wars to end, the American troops brought home, the huge military industrial complex deactivated, and, in contradistinction, the Good News proclaimed, the poor fed and housed, in a radical reduction of the militaristic model of societal planning to one founded on more of a non-violent, pacifistic and anti-war Christian social justice and service model. 

[Father  John Dear writes regularly for the ‘liberal’ American Roman Catholic website National Catholic Reporter, and his thoughts on OBL are found in a link in the comments section.]
