Christians and War… and Battlestar Galactica

Tom Woods and Laurence Vance are two excellent examples of Christian libertarians, so I am delighted to share a few links that involve both of them today in follow-up to yesterday’s massive 3000 word post on the history of American foreign policy in the Middle East.

First, Tom’s book review of Laurence’s Christianity and War is now posted at the Future of Freedom Foundation. I hope it convinces you to get the book because it is well worth reading.

Second, back in January Lew Rockwell interviewed Laurence for the LRC Radio Show. It’s only about 12 minutes long but it’s definitely worth checking out. They talk a little about the book but also about Christian perception of war throughout history.

And now for something completely different…

If any of you readers watch Battlestar Galactica, there is an interesting article up on io9.com about one of the more “libertarian” elements in the show: the theme of slaves and masters as exemplified in the cylon-human relationship. If you’re not a fan… skip this because you won’t have all the background information. ;-)
