The Middle Path, One Day At A Time

A Crisis of Conscience — Conscientious Objectors in the Military

Leave a comment

Religion and the rule of law teach us that life is sacred and inviolable That is, that human beings possess an inalienable right to life. Correlative to this right is the moral and legal obligation not to kill another human being, i.e., not to violate this right in others. This inalienable right to life is the basis of the Just War principle that requires innocents to be discriminated and afforded immunity, that they not be attacked, injured or killed in war.  t r u t h o u t | A Crisis of Conscience
