Website Review: Pax Christi USA

A review based on:


According to its mission statement, Pax Christi USA "rejects war, preparations for war, and every form of violence and domination. It advocates primacy of conscience, economic and social justice, and respect for creation. . . . Pax Christi USA works toward a more peaceful, just, and sustainable world." Unfortunately, its version of violence and domination is often at odds with the Church and her teachings. The organization seems to care more about finding common ground with abortionists and the gay rights lobby than about working for true peace.
