Church leaders clear 'God takes no side in war'

From the National Council of Churches, an op-ed in the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette by Felton May and Bob Edgar.
One candidate for public office in a Midwest state made an important point recently. "It's time we start reading the Bible instead of knocking people over the head with it." Good advice.

And since the words of Jesus tells us we are all 'children of the Father' it might not be a bad idea to start reading and studying the Koran, the Torah, and the Upanishads.

So who are these two fellows who don't seem to know that the Torah's in the Bible?
Retired United Methodist Bishop Felton Edwin May, is the Dean of the Harry R. Kendall Science and Health Mission Center, Philander Smith College, Little Rock, Ark. The Rev. Bob Edgar is General Secretary of the National Council of Churches USA and author of Middle Church, Reclaiming the Moral Values of the Faithful Majority from the Religious Right.
