Walter Wink called it the myth of redemptive violence. It is very compatible with our reptilian brain that the way to be safe is to arm ourselves and kill others who we suspect are our enemies. However, history and our better selves know that this is not true.
I am reminded of the parental pledge to the world, "I will not raise my child to torture or kill your child."
Unitarian Universalists more other people value the inherent worth and dignity of every person. While we can pretty much all agree on this value, when we bring it into application the conflicts emerge. Those of us who want Unitarian Universalism to become a peace church seem to accept and support this value more comprehensively and unconditionally than others who want to qualify it.
Did Hitler has inherent worth and dignity?
