Church Goes to War Too Easily
i Mr. Ford's Dearborn Independent

j to be running in low and high gear

i | things against certain anti-war clergy
5 men. It calls the "prostrate victims"
"natural cowards and selfish skulk
ers." Old Henry doesn't seem to
know any more about Christianity
than just ordinary common folk*.
The church is generally hearkened in-1
to war by the shout of "patriotism"; |
and the strange thing 1 about it is that
it does not seem to know that war is
the command of the""olrl dispensation 1
s>nd peace' is the command of the new.
It is contrary to every principle that
Jesus taught for men or nations to
go to war, and yet the church is drag
ged into every war, and seems n«>t to
appreciate its mission should he to
ward peace rather than war.
