Papal Request: Fast for Peace

Pope John Paul II is requesting people of faith to fast tomorrow as a reminder of the long years of suffering endured by Iraqi citizens as a result of the international embargo against the country.

The Meatstack has supported the embargo against Iraq in the past, and will continue to support it until there is a change in leadership. But I agree with Nobel Peace Prize Winner Bishop Desmond Tutu that the way to free a people is not to "bomb them into democracy."
