FAST FOOD (2018): Thirty-First Helping
The most shocking fact about war is that its victims and its instruments are individual human beings, and that these individual beings are condemned by their nurturing in the monstrous traditions of politics to murder each other or be murdered in quarrels not their own.
Author of The Perennial Philosophy, Means and Ends, Brave New World and pacifist
It is a provable falsehood to communicate that Jesus in the Gospels in any way—explicitly or implicitly— teaches that His disciples can be instruments of human destruction. Any pope, cardinal, bishop, priest, minister or lay person who—by intentional commission or calculated omission—entices a fellow Christian to believe he or she can be a faithful disciple of the Jesus of the Gospels and His Way as He presents it in the Gospels, and simultaneously be an instrument of human destruction, is serving the “father of lies.“
“You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.”
-Emmanuel Charles McCarthy
