Nonviolence

"In Jesus Christ, God disarmed himself. God surrendered himself without protection and without arms to those who keep crying for more and more protection and arms. In Jesus Christ, God renounced violence. And of course, he did this unilaterally, without waiting for us to lay down our weapons first."    - Dorothee Solle ; Of War and Lovenon


"Violence is initiated by those who oppress, who exploit, who fail to recognize others as persons— not by those who are oppressed, exploited, and unrecognized."    - Paulo Freire ; Pedagogy of the Oppressed: 30th Anniversary Edition


"When the practice of nonviolence [as Jesus taught it in the Sermon on the Mount] becomes universal, God will reign on earth as God does in heaven."    - Gandhi ; Essential Writings
