    … Church teaching has long allowed for “just wars” — the use of force to stop an unjust aggression — as long as certain conditions are met. But participants at a conference sponsored by the Vatican’s justice and peace office and Pax Christi, the Catholic peace movement, said in a final communiqué Thursday that too often the doctrine had been used to justify and endorse military action rather than prevent it. …
  • Diocese Refuses to Allow Pax Christi, Former Bishop Hold Parish Event

    The Diocese of Richmond, which has vetted speakers for orthodoxy since Bishop Francis DiLorenzo was appointed bishop in 2004, has declined to allow Pax Christi to hold an event at a parish because it is not a diocesan organization. Retired Bishop Walter Sullivan had been scheduled to speak at the event. “I think it's just a big disappointment that we couldn't be at one of our parishes,” he said after the event was held at another location. Bishop Sullivan, now 81, led the diocese from 1974 to 2003. Richmond Diocese Rejected Pax Christi Kickoff Event

    He's an unlikely convict. Robert Call, a 72-year-old retiree, is an avid gardener, devoted family man and regular churchgoer. But the Hasbrouck Heights resident will put his quiet life on hold when he begins serving a 90-day federal prison sentence next month for a crime that he describes as an act of patriotism. Call was arrested in November while taking part in a massive demonstration against a U.S. military academy -- the former School of the Americas at Fort Benning, Ga. -- that critics say trained some of the bloodiest dictators and military officers in Latin America. Call was one...

I arrived this morning at a Catholic retreat sponsored by Pax Christi at the NYU Catholic Center. The retreat was titled "Peacemaking Beyond Ourselves, Beyond Our Borders with Francis and Claire." It was led by Kevin Queally, TOR. The day was to focus on St. Francis, his outreach to others, including a Muslim Sultan during the Crusades. As I proceed to look at the literature handed out,...
  • Communism and human nature (Bolshie Mod sez, Arise ye kittens of the earth!)

    04/05/2005 10:50:57 AM PDT · by Sammy sam · 153 replies · 8,234+ views
    Many argue that communism will never be possible because of "human nature". The essence of this false argument is the belief that a communist society would consist of an all-powerful central government that would tell everybody what to do--and would therefore undermine the creative initiative of individuals and the search for happiness. • This argument is based on two false assumptions: (1) It assumes that a communist society will look like the former Soviet Union, or the current China, North Korea, etc (ie: corrupt police states with a feudal-style ruling class) (2) It assumes that people will only work in...

In a report released Thursday, the U.N. panel outlined four possible options for the future of Internet governance for world leaders to consider at a November "Information...

    WASHINGTON — Megan Watson, leader of Mainstream Moms, is so angry at military recruiters for invading schools to sign up unwary youth for combat in Iraq that she and her group launched an online movement, “” “They offer these trinkets to lure our children to enlist,” Watson said in a phone interview from her home in Bolinas, Calif. “This is very aggressive, demographic targeting to have conversations with our kids that should not be happening.” All branches of the military are falling short of recruiting goals as parents say, in effect, “Hell no! My kids won’t go!” Watson blasted the...

    A.N.S .W.E.R.'s response to Bush:Hit the Streets September 24!Recognizing that the people of the United States have turned dramat ically against the war and occupation of Iraq, Bush went on national televi sion tonight to defend his imperial foreign policy. He repea tedly invoked September 11 as a pretext for the criminal and illegal war ag ainst Iraq.

    Fifty priests and several hundred sisters and laity from Western Pennsylvania have signed an ad in the Pittsburgh Catholic, saying that voting decisions cannot be reduced to the single issue of abortion. The ad is in response to the bishops and conservative lay organizations that have declared it wrong for a Catholic to vote for a candidate who does not publicly oppose legal abortion, such as Democratic presidential candidate Sen. John F. Kerry. The ad, sponsored by Pax Christi USA, a 60-year-old group advocating pacifism and nonviolence, says, "Members of the media -- and indeed a few of our own...
