Randam Ron Paulism

Some of the strongest supporters of the war declare that we are a Christian nation, yet use their religious beliefs to justify the war. They claim it is our Christian duty to remake the Middle East and attack the Muslim infidels. Evidently I have been reading from a different Bible. I remember something about “Blessed are the peacemakers.” My beliefs aside, Christian teaching of nearly a thousand years reinforces the concept of “The Just war theory.” This Christian theory emphasizes six criteria needed to justify Christian participation in war… The war in Iraq fails to meet almost all of these requirements. This discrepancy has generated anger and division within the Christian community. Some are angry because the war is being fought out of Christian duty, yet does not have uniform support from all Christians. Others are angry because they see Christianity as a religion as peace and forgiveness, not war and annihilation of enemies.”

Tim Geithner: Debt Crisis Needs Stronger Efforts

WASHINGTON — Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner wants faster and bolder action to deal with the European debt crisis, and he’s calling that crisis the most serious risk to the global economy.

Geithner tells leaders of the International Monetary Fund that without more decisive moves, there’s a risk of domino-style defaults by European countries.

He says critical decisions cannot wait until the crisis grows more severe.

Geithner has a specific request for the European Central Bank, which serves as the central bank for the 17 nations that use the euro currency. He wants the bank to make sure that countries that are pursuing credible reform programs have access to capital.

The treasury secretary spoke to the IMF on Saturday.
