Barbara Kay takes a swipe at Christian Peacemaker Teams
Personally, I don’t think she has a clue. The Christian Peacemakers on the ground may have an imbalanced view of the conflict in the middle east, but their view of Christ is anything but “simplistic” or “masochistic.” Two of the strongest themes in biblical thought is standing with the oppressed and being willing to suffer. A thought largely lost on today’s comfort Christianity. Being willing to suffer is much different than taking pleasure in suffering.
