There is some reference to nuclear war in this article, but not much. As with most Catholic Blogs, pubs, etc., the threat of a nuclear apocalypse is ignored or forgotten. The existence of even one hydrogen bomb is an abomination; it is demonic. Yet the great majority Catholics are blind to that reality.

## Why do Germans express themselves in such "cloudy" language ? Are they afraid of being understood by the man in the street ? Schweitzer was perfectly capable of expressing himself clearly, so why the obscurity here ?

I blame Hegel.

## Well, it's something the world could do without. What I don't understand is why "pro-life" characters get so upset about abortion, but not about nuclear weapons. The natalists - a better name for them - seem quite happy for chemical weapons and ICBMs to be designed by Catholics: why ? A truly pro-life position would condemn Catholics who help to design ICBMs along with Catholics who co-operate in an abortion. The inconsistency is glaring - the ancient Church of the three first centuries was pacifist, as well as opposed to abortion and pederasty - so the usual apologetic against abortion that quotes the Fathers in support of its position is not fair to the texts; it quotes only what suits its case. That is not good.
