An Anti-war Easter Message
What's wrong with Easter as celebrated in the US? "Easter… for most Christians, is about individual salvation not interpersonal solidarity. It is about personal resurrection from the dead not community restoration for the living. It is about an “open” tomb that is restricted. It is for believers only not justice for all. It is about eternity not ethics, about right belief not just behavior. It is about the resurrection of the dead not the living." But Easter should be about the resurrection of the living, and that means learning to live in peace and abstaining from war. Thus argues the Reverend William E. Alberts in this piece from Counterpunch read here by Old Mole Tom Becker.
