Letter to the Editor

When you hear the words of a man telling you to kill, remember instead the words of God: 'Thou shall not kill!' No soldier is obliged to obey an order contrary to the law of God. In the name of God, in the name of our tormented people who have suffered so much and whose laments cry out to heaven, I beseech you, I beg you, I order you in the name of God, stop the repression!'"
-Bishop Oscar Romero
