On Georgia, Russia and the Cause of Freedom

As a theologian one of the toughtest questions that one is asked to answer is, “Are wars always moral evils?” I have written in the past that I am a “near passificist,” which means that I prefer peace to militarism, but also understand that there are indeed worse things than war.  There is repression, there is ethnic cleansing, there are pogroms, this is evil taking advantage of the tools of peace. 

Which brings us to the horrible news coming out of the former Soviet Republic of Georgia.

Map is of the old Soviet Republic of Georgia so you can see the former boundaries more clearly.
