The murder continues.

Afghan police are saying today that over 100 people were killed in this week’s US air strike in Farah Province. 25 to 30 are suspected Taliban, while the vast majority were civilians. A Red Cross investigative team confirmed the findings, saying they had seen “dozens” of bodies in two separate locations and that civilians were still digging through the rubble of their mud-brick homes looking for others.

Therefore, renounce war and proclaim peace, and seek diligently to turn the hearts of the children to their fathers, and the hearts of the fathers to the children;

–The Lord

Our traditions have been such that we are not apt to look upon war between tow nations as murder… Does it justify the slaying of men, women and children that otherwise would have remained at home in peace, because a great army is doing the work? No: the guilty will be damned for it.

–Brigham Young

    King Benjamin advised us that if we wish to always rejoice and retain a remission of our sins we should remember our own nothingness, i.e. how much we need to rely on god rather than the arm of flesh.

    Clarification: We have infinite worth in the sight of god, but our knowledge, wisdom, and power are infinitesimal in comparison with the corresponding attributes of god.

    Or as President Kimball put it we need to rely on God rather than the gods of stone and steel

    “We are a warlike people, easily distracted from our assignment of preparing for the coming of the Lord. When enemies rise up, we commit vast resources to the fabrication of gods of stone and steel — ships, planes, missiles, fortifications — and depend on them for protection and deliverance.”
