Of Hiroshima and Houston
I have an article published this morning in Crisis magazine on the evils of the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, responding to an author (Deacon Jim Russell) who wrote on August 7th (between the anniversary of the two bombings, on the 6th and 9th) justifying Truman’s decision to ‘test’ the nuclear bomb on cities containing thousands of civilians, women, children, infants, babes in the womb. This was the first and, so far, the only time the bomb has deliberately been used in warfare. May it be the last.
You may compare my argument with the one by another Deacon, James Toner,
