Came across this article, The Amish Response to Terrorism, and was struck by this:
If there is a greater purpose to be salvaged from this otherwise shattering act of violence at the Amish school, it is to dramatize before the world that there is a truly Christian – indeed, an enlightened – response to acts of terrorism which puts to shame our official national response of bitter, endless war justified in stunning hypocrisy by jaws flapping with empty Christian rhetoric.
Indeed.

Do check out D. D. Delany's piece in Portfolio.
