Ben Salmon is getting around
Ben Salmon just popped up online at the Jewish Peace Fellowship website. More specifically, he made his appearance in the February 2019 issue of the Fellowship's monthly newsletter in an article written by Jack Gilroy entitled: "No War is Just: Ben Salmon."
Gilroy shares the highlights of Ben's stand against war and his subsequent torture and punishment by the military, closing the article with a couple paragraphs on the rising Catholic interest in disavowing Just War belief. Ben has made quite an impression on the Shalom readership as several have endorsed the petition to put Ben Salmon on the path to sainthood with one reader stating: "This man is a hero, not a traitor!"
If your curiosity leads you to investigate the Fellowship website, you'll be able to discover the Jewish tradition of pacifism and a Prayer for Peace in a Time of War that should get as wide a coverage as Ben Salmon's witness.
