I just heard something from Steve Hildreth, a defence analyst with the US federal government, that I thought I should pass on in case any are interested. BYU is sponsoring a symposium in Washington in the Spring of '03 on "The Gospel and National Security." Steve wrote an article critical of the Gulf War (among other things) for BYU Studies about the same time I wrote a similar personal essay for Dialogue which was also anti-war. He says his paper will be the lead-off paper in this conference. Don't know anything else about it, but if anyone's interested I assume they could find details on BYU's website.
Incidentally, both of our articles are on my website (I've belatedly received his permission to post his): Mine's called "Is There Such a Thing as a 'Moral War'?": http://www.members.shaw.ca/mschindler/D/moral_war.htm Steve's is called "Perspective on the 'First Presidency Statement on the MX Missile." http://www.members.shaw.ca/mschindler/D/Hildreth.htm -- Marc A.
