The NYTimes ran this as one of their top photos yesterday. The caption:
A Roman Catholic priest followed by military officials blessed 50 new machine guns in Kauswagan, a town on the southern Philippine island of Mindanao, to help the military in its operation against rebels belonging to the Moro Islamic Liberation Front.
The question: Should a priest be blessing machine guns? Should the church be deciding who is worthy of life?
Father, Father: Make love not war.
