A “Peace” Offering

The rather controversial Marquette Center for Peacemaking is holding an event, announced in a university e-mail.
Marquette’s Center for Peacemaking will hold an open house Tuesday, Jan. 15, from 11:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., in the Academic Support Building, room 201.

Director G. Simon Harak, S.J., and Associate Director Deidre Hughes will be delighted by the presence of all who attend, but visitors are also invited to bring a “peace offering” — anything they think will help promote peacemaking. Chocolate, juice, soda, coffee, hot chocolate, books, DVDs, videos, CDs, framed posters, and contacts with area peace and justice groups are particularly welcome offerings. They will also be interested in talents and time that attendees would be willing to donate to the center’s peacemaking efforts.
Yes, these folks really seem to believe that hot chocolate can make a contribution to “peace.”

We are sure that the Kurds that Saddam gassed would have felt much better had Milwaukee area leftists been there to serve them juice, soda and coffee.

And we are sure that, if we had a time machine and could go back to the late 1930s, these books, DVDs, videos, CDs and framed posters would have put the fear of God into Hitler.

We suggest that somebody go and take a U.S. Army recruiting poster.

Wow, Christians acting Christian. What a concept.

This is what is known in polite circles as a gesture and of course as usual you are creating another straw man.

This points to your post to the one above it. Liberal Christians are not at all against the faith. We just have a problem with those who don't conduct themselves like Christians.
