When violence and hatred abounds in speech, in attitude, and in the proposed direction for our country…Pax Christi USA renews its commitment to a spirituality of nonviolence and peacemaking as a way of life.
When the rhetoric of nuclear retaliation is casually referenced as a video game and revenge, not diplomacy, is the reaction to conflict…Pax Christi USA renews its commitment to disarmament, demilitarization, and reconciliation with justice as a way of life.
When racism, bigotry, and bullying are modeled by public figures and when immigration and refugee rights are threatened with deportation and wall-building…Pax Christi USA renews its commitment to economic and interracial justice in the United States as a way of life.
When human rights and religious freedom are mocked and belittled, when the use of torture is claimed to be a good thing, and when climate change is seen as a conspiracy theory…Pax Christi USA renews its commitment to the human rights and dignity of all people and to global restoration of all of creation as a way of life.
We are committed to prayer, study, and action wherever, whenever, and whoever threatens with fear or reprisal the God given right to live in peace.
