Forgive our enemies.
Despite Loney's torturous imprisonment, he harkens to the call of Jesus to love our enemies, do good to those who harm us, pray for those who persecute us. Jesus calls us to accept suffering before we inflict injury. He calls us to pick up the cross and lay down the sword.
I, a would-be pacifist who opposes our war with Iraq, feel the deepest gratitude to Loney for sharing his inner struggle.
