We can no longer think of war as a solution, because its risks will probably always be greater than its supposed benefits. In view of this, it is very difficult nowadays to invoke the rational criteria elaborated in earlier centuries to speak of the possibility of a “just war”. Never again war![242]

260. In the words of Saint John XXIII, “it no longer makes sense to maintain that war is a fit instrument with which to repair the violation of justice”.[243]


lots more there. the catholic church is re-inventing itself again.

the very next section has pope francis announcing that capital punishment is wrong, everywhere, in all circumstances. that's new as well.

If you don't evolve you go extinct. Maybe that is the one saving grace of Islam, it can't evolve.
If religions were TV channels atheism is turning the TV off.

If they're extinct, how could they?
