Overview

Fantastic book on WWI and Religion hers an insert from the book.The Antagonism or German Political Philosophy To Christian Truth And Morals THE action of Germany in precipitating this war greatly surprised and startled mankind. As the Teuton assaulted Belgium and France our wonder gave place to amazement and astonishment, succeeded by horror and execration, and these feelings continually intensified, have increased as the Germans have developed and fought to execute, through inhuman savagery, their long-prepared scheme of world domination. Such barbaric expression of the life and character of the German nation was totally unexpected by most of us. That a people whom we regarded with entire good will and credited with many kindly virtues should deliberately make such war, should be so immoral and unfeeling, so treacherous and cruel, so egotistical and rapacious, so religious and so pagan, we could barely credit and cannot yet understand. Our good will for them has not been wholly destroyed. We have condemned but do not hate them as we try to understand their contradictions and misdeeds. In seeking to account for their conduct and to justify against them the most universal antagonism of mankind, we feel that we accomplish little by merely giving way to violent denunciation of their actions, though these deserve our severest condemnation; and consistent with our former good opinion of the German people, we seek explanation, if any there be, for actions which, by every law of morals and humanity, we execrate and abhor. In the spirit of fairness, not to be destroyed by our unequivocal hostility to their behavior, we have sought to account for their misdoings. May I detail some of the assumptions which we have made in our endeavor to place in anintelligent light our explanation of the actions of which Germany has been guilty?
