The support for military action is appalling. Jesus was pressed hard to become the expected leader of a military revolt but followed a life of peace, dying a painful death rather than exhorting his followers to an armed struggle.

How curious that in the official record of business done the only names or titles all upper-cased are those of THE ARCHBISHOPS.

Kate, as I said over at The Conversation, I can see nothing ethical in standing by on the other side and allowing innocent people to be slaughtered. If Jesus truly approved of this, then as with his belief in an imminent eschaton, Jesus was wrong.

Or maybe James the slaughter of innocents only happens BECAUSE we are not trusting the Lord to deal with it?
