"I used to believe in a just war, but I don't anymore."

July 10, 2020

Sojourners published an opinion piece in its August 2020 edition by Margie Pfeil, Ph.D., faculty joint appointment in theology and the Center for Social Concerns, titled "I used to believe in a just war, but I don't anymore." Pfeil describes being a teenager in a San Diego naval stronghold in the 1980s and her resulting fear of nuclear warfare. In 1985, she joined thousands of others at Balboa Park to commemorate the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings. It was in that moment she developed a conviction of conscience to work for nuclear disarmament. 

"Conscience involves the capacity to discern and choose the morally right course of action in a particular situation. In doing so, a person brings to bear a lifelong process of formation of conscience. Each person has the obligation to form his or her conscience as fully as possible, and to follow it."
