Bishop Thomas Gumbleton Issues Call to Catholics: Let Us End Our Complicity in War, by Bishop Thomas Gumbleton, Common Dreams, Jan. 10, 2020
All Catholics should refuse to kill and should refuse cooperation with United States wars.
Once again, information has surfaced regarding United States governmental efforts to mislead and misinform people about disgraceful, cruel destruction caused by a United States war of choice against people who meant the U.S. no harm. In the Afghanistan Papers, the United States government officials acknowledged, privately, their own uncertainty about why they were going to war against Afghanistan in 2001. The trove of newly released documents about the 18-year war unmasked years of high-level deceit and deliberate efforts to obfuscate realities on the ground in Afghanistan.
