Minister & Military Man Major John Krenson to Speak at Marquette

On college campuses, official attitudes tend toward a mushy pacificism. It’s not really different on the campuses of Catholic universities, where institutional bureaucrats lean to the left and give the impression that to be really Christian one must be a pacifist.

Of course they have been willing to make exceptions for Marxist guerrillas in Central America. And Palestinian terrorists. And insurgents fighting the apartheid regime in South Africa. And . . . well, you get the idea.

A more mainstream view is being presented by the College Republicans this coming Tuesday, when they bring Major John Krenson to campus. According to the group:
. . . Krenson describes how he has reconciled his service as an ordained minister with his military service as an armed combatant in the War on Terror. He speaks of his direct experience as well as from a theological perspective to describe the just war we are waging today.
The event is scheduled for Tuesday, April 4 from 8:00- 9:00 pm in Room 103 of Johnston Hall.

The College Republicans sponsored a standing-room-only discussion of school choice this past week.

This forthcoming event promises to be equally relevant and interesting.
