New article online: How to disarm a violent heart

Josiah Neufleld recently interviewed John Dear, the renowned Jesuit peace activist and author. The resulting interview is an amazing look into the thoughts of the well-known peace activist.

“My take is that we’re now completely addicted to violence, the whole human race. We’re all brainwashed to be violent as kids, as families, as schools. Now after thousands of years of violence we’ve instituted it to the point where we say, “Yeah, it’s okay to drop a nuclear bomb.” I have priests and ministers telling me that all the time. We need to become sober people of nonviolence. Our churches and peace groups should be like 12-step groups where we begin the process of becoming nonviolent.”
