"Living justly in this world requires people to name evil and sin accurately. Since the┬átenth century, Christian theology has often obfuscated violence, calling torment redemptive, sanctioning war as holy, deeming invasion to be liberation, and invoking self-annihilation as love. Precise recognition of that which harms life is a prerequisite for living in this world as paradise."    - Rita Nakashima Brock & Rev. Dr. Rebecca Parkera ; Saving Paradise: How Christianity Traded Love of This World for Crucifixion and Empire, p. 399


"One man may not kill. If he kills a fellow-creature, he is a murderer. If two, ten, a hundred men do so, they, too, are murderers. But a government or a nation may kill as many men as it chooses, and that will not be murder, but a great and noble action."      - Leo Tolstoy ; The Kingdom of God Is Within You
