Franciscan for Peace

Dear George:

I write this letter with a heavy heart as we approach the third year of the war in Iraq.

I strongly oppose this war, as it is a definite offense against the fifth commandment: Thou shalt not kill. There should be National Day of Mourning on March 19th to ask God to forgive all of the destruction: the people of Iraq, the destruction of Iraq, the thousands of soldiers who are permanently disabled and the thousands dead.

Mr. Bush, please end this war before more destruction takes place.

Sister Margaret H.
Franciscan for Peace

PS: I can't think of any better reason to present e-mails that promote peace. Please forward my e-mail as well as those who oppose the war on the grounds that it defies God's law of preserving life.

Please do not use comments for personal attacks. One of the goals of this project is to allow these open letters to foster civil (and civic) debate, so please keep personal attacks to yourselves, even if you disagree with the letter/comments here. Better yet, write a letter yourself.

    I respect you sister. However we live in a country where there is a seperation between church and state, and we follow in the United States the Bill of Rights and the Constitution. Our rules are in the Constitution, not the ten commandments.
