What He Said

John Dear, a Jesuit priest, has a great essay on Christians who support war, violence and all things Jesus rebelled against. I could not agree more.

One of the best paragraphs:

I used to think these all-American Christians never read the Gospel, that they simply chose not to be authentic disciples of the nonviolent Jesus. Now, alas, I think they have indeed chosen discipleship, but not to the hero of the Gospels, Jesus. Instead, through their actions, they have become disciples of the devout, religious, all-powerful, murderous Pharisees who killed him.
