"Is it too late? Although my influence in Vatican circles is limited, there is no reason why other Christian bodies, Catholic and Protestant, might not come together to publicly issue an apology to the Muslim world for the crusades and to call for a rejection of militarist responses to terrorism and the use of religious language to justify such militarism."-Rosemary Radford Ruether
Christian theology understand that God is love and without love, one has nothing at all.
Another feminist reformer, Dorothy Day, agitated church and state by reminding them both that:
"Love is not the starving of whole populations. Love is not the bombardment of open cities. Love is not killing...Our manifesto is the Sermon on the Mount, which means that we will try to be peacemakers." -Dorothy Day
