ECAPC_016 Emmanuel Charles McCarthy, Part 1

Fr. Emmanuel Charles McCarthy, Catholic priest, author/lecturer, Nobel Peace Prize nominee, former U.S. Marine and a committed advocate of the non-violent path of Jesus provides a powerfully candid discussion of the failings of the Christian church to reject nationalistic violence and follow the commandment to “Love your enemies.” (Parts 1 and 2)

In Part 1, Fr. McCarthy remarks that “In a community of cannibals it is difficult to raise the issue that cannibalism is against the will of God” to example how Christians have developed an acceptance of violence and have rejected Jesus as a consequence. “If we cannot know from the New Testament that Jesus rejected violence, then we can no nothing about his personal message.”
