Christians are not to fight in wars and kill according to St. Hippoclitus

"If anyone studying to be a Christian, or any on of the faithful wants to become a soldier, let him be turned away....Christian soldiers are not to kill, even if commanded to...Christians are not to become soldiers voluntarily...He who carries a sword must be sure that he does not shed blood. If he does shed blood, he must not participcate in the sacraments."
