Faithful Peacemaking in a War-Making State

Program #BERD001. Recorded in Glenwood Springs CO on June 18, 2003.

Berrigan outlines a grammar of dissent and calls for an ethical housecleaning of the “Just War” theory. Just War is invoked to give a moral and juridical guise to a war one intends to wage for reasons different than stated. When this happens, “We are called to be conscientious objectors to war,” and “put the generals and warmongers out of work."


Daniel Berrigan

Daniel J. Berrigan was an American Catholic priest, committed peace activist, and poet. In 1968 he and his brother, Philip, were put on the FBI Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list for their involvement in antiwar protests during the Vietnam war. In and out of jail for direct political action, he once said, “The day after I’m embalmed, that’s when I’ll give it up.” He passed away at the age of 94 in 2016.
