"Total war ought indeed to be difficult for the Christian conscience to confront, but the current Christian way out makes it easy; war is defended morally and Christians fall easily into line--as they are led to justify it--in each nation in terms of Christian faith itself. Men of religious congregations do evil. Ministers of god make them feel good about doing it. Rather than guide them in the moral cultivation of their consciences, ministers, with moral nimbleness, blunt that conscience, covering it up with peace of mind" (The Causes of World War III, 1958, p. 152).
