"Catholic Social Thought and Citizenship"

That's the title of the symposium published in the Summer 2009 issue of Villanova's Journal of Catholic Social Thought (Vol. 6, No. 2).  Many interesting papers--including one by MOJ blogger John Breen and another by former MOJ blogger Greg Kalscheuer, SJ.  Check it out.

According to one of the pieces--by John Keown, Rose Kennedy Professor of Christian Ethics at the Kennedy Institute of Ethics at Georgetown University--"it is far from obvious that [the insurrection of the American colonists against King George] satisfied all (or indeed any) of the [seven] crieria [laid down by the just war tradition for the waging of a just war], convincingly or otherwise" (p. 304).  An interesting and sobering conclusion!
