Why I Am a Pacifist

For several hundred years following the death of Christ, there is absolutely no question that his followers were certain that he had forbidden war. As a result of many Christians refusal to participate in war they suffered the consequences of imprisonment and/or death. These facts are indisputable. A learned writer of the seventeenth century said, "It is as easy to obscure the sun at mid-day, as to deny that the primitive Christians renounced all revenge and war."

The poling that shows the candidates running neck and neck boggles my mind. What in the name of common sense are the citizens of this country thinking? After 8 disastrous years, including an ill-advised, immoral war with Iraq that has cost our country to date the loss of 4,155 U.S. Military Personnel (Officially acknowledged) in the U.S. War And Occupation Of Iraq . And 1,255,026 of Iraqi’s Slaughtered in the US War And Occupation Of Iraq. And millions of more Iraqi’s displaced and living in… Continue

Dear Earl,
I saw that you are online and just wanted to say hello. I am not sure how to do direct chat here yet.
Now that the US elections are over I hope to have more time to explore and support this space. Per our last communication... I t appears a few people were thinking !! Yes We Can!!

I bet you become very well known on this iPeace site!
Thanks for asking me to be your friend.
Your words are wise, and yes, your What are citizens thinking is right on!
I, American, but living in Italy (for over 30 years!!) have thought for years that Americans are manipulated...and I am not really that much infomed about politics. Have gotten much more so living in Europe - we seem to have a larger vision of the world from here, whereas in California, it seemed to me that people didn't see much futher than the shopping mall!! No, I am exaggerating, but distance, physical distance can very often mean that one thinks the rest of the world is over there, so why worry!!
Teach us! Share your wisdom! As Chanae says here below, yes, we can start missing being with, or knowing elders who are really informed, wise, and involved. It is very fortunate to hear your views.
Best wishes
Stephanie

Interesting that my InterFaith Minister cousin Stephen just used the same words to me in relationship to the US election.."what are people thinking?!) my answer.. they are not" this alll about the manipulation of emotion, the most primary emotion of fear. I am so glad to see you here. At age 60 I am missing many of my elders and teachers. Be well. "The Impossible May Take a Little Time"
