Obama’s Oslo Speech

Saturday, December 19th, 2009

Like many other theologians and church leaders, I had some real difficulties with (a) Obama’s receipt of the Nobel Peace Prize and (b) Obama’s discourse on just-war theory and “realism” as his acceptance speech. I’ve not had the time to read many of the responses, but my friend Brian McLaren has a very good one. (I found another friend’s, Stanley Hauerwas’s, perhaps equally insightful but not as clearly written.)
