Just Peace

In an article that will soon be published in Good Faith Media and the Arkansas Catholic, Bishop Anthony Taylor explains the difference between Just War vs. Just Peace. “The Just War theory sets high standards for legitimate entrance into a war and even higher standards for right conduct within a war, standards that no armed conflict in recent memory has ever met… Therefore, the time has come to recognize that since the Just War criteria are almost never met, conflicts need to be resolved through nonviolent means instead.” (Read more on our Prayer, Study and Action page)
