  • Kudos for standing up for nonviolence. I have not read the book (yet) but the article makes it sound like the only reason not to kill is because Jesus says so. Would you be obligated to kill if Jesus told you to kill? If something is right or wrong because God says so, then right and wrong are left in the hands of those who control the meaning of our respective Scriptures and hence the message of God to our various communities. Some things are too important to left in the hands of clergy and their all too human uses of Scripture.
