Mass Suicide


Mass Suicide

“The Eucharist becomes the meal of unity binding Christians through time and space to be one body, one Christ, for the world. That we have been made one makes it impossible, therefore, for Christians to contemplate killing other Christians with whom we share this meal. Such killing is not murder, it is suicide.”

—Stanley Hauerwas, Commentary on Matthew, pg. 219

This may explain the death of Christianity in Western Europe following the two world wars.
It was mass suicide.
Or Mass suicide.
