Christians, Catholics, Must Rediscover The Pratice Of The "Just War" Theory

Reader comment on item: The Vatican Confronts Islam

Submitted by AnneM (United States), Jul 5, 2006 at 17:59

This article about my church begining to stand up more to the Muslim community is long overdue. Also it is about time that Christians, and Catholics in a special way, must rediscover that one must not only stand up to defend the Christian faith in peaceful ways, but also rediscover the pratice of the "just war theory " that was taught by St. Augustine. Also it is about time that the Christian Biblical teaching of Mathew 5:39 be interpeted in the right way, not a call to weakness but to stand up for the Christian faith and the freedom to pratice it in peace.
