Bayard Rustin Quote: “War is wrong. Conscription for war…”

Rustin Quote, helmet and rifle made into soldier's grave

War is wrong. Conscription for war is inconsistent with freedom of conscience, which is not merely the right to believe but to act on the degree of truth that one receives, to follow a vocation which is God-inspired and God-directed.
