Just-War Tradition explained

George Weigel, the man that John Paul II acclaimed to be the greatest lay theologian of the 20th century, has written a great concise post on the National Review which is also posted here on the Ethics and Public Policy Center website on the proper understanding and origin of the Just War Tradition.

Thank you George! Clearly the late Pontiff knew what he was talking about when he spoke so glowingly of you.
