Where Science and Faith Converge

Remembering Heroes: Memorial Day 2012

By Kenneth R. Samples - May 28, 2012

“War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks nothing worth a war, is worse…”
— John Stuart Mill, “The Contest in America,” Harper’s New Monthly Magazine, April 1862, 683–84.

Today as those in the United States remember the men and women who have died to preserve American freedom and defend others from tyranny, I’d like to offer the following collection of blog posts, articles, and podcasts. Each one reflects on the reality of war, its purpose, or the ways we’ve depicted it in film.

Reflections posts


Straight Thinking podcasts

In reading these articles, I hope you might reflect on the sacrifices made in times of war and consider carefully the arguments for and against war.
