Pax Christi USA Renews Its Commitment to Peace

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.
