    I rage vicariously through Hauerwas; spot-on. I love that his language is always assertive, and one could even argue aggressive at times, and that it becomes a vehicle to testify pacifism. Brilliant.

    @Gravity Traveler agree 100%. I think his example shows that confidence/strength does not equate to arrogance/violence. Hauerwas gives us permission to speak clearly and confidently to the powers that be!
