We realize that might be a crazy-sounding title. Churches don’t go to war. Or do they?


When Berna and Johnny were growing up in the Roman Catholic Church, the church defined what it called a “just war.” In other words, war (and all its brutality) was justified under conditions the Church defined.

Many years ago, our friend Seth said “There is never any justification for violence, for hatred, for murder.”

What’s the answer? Is there any single answer?

We will side with Seth. But we realize not all of you will. There are many answers.

The closest  you will come to a real answer is by examining your own values and beliefs.

The video below will help you to at least start on this journey of self-discovery.
