Is all killing wrong? Is any deliberate killing ever justified? Can a Christian or even a Jewish believer justifiably hold to the fifth commandment (or sixth for Jews) and also support any type of killing? What does the fifth commandment really say?
I have been involved in a good exchange over at Against the Grain. Though the original post is titled "Fr.
