View the Truth Commission on Conscience in War

The Truth Commission on Conscience in War, a national gathering of community and religious leaders, advocacy groups, and artists, heard testimony from veterans and parents of veterans as well as presentations from expert witnesses about:

  • moral and religious questions facing soldiers both before and during combat
  • limits of military regulations on Conscientious Objection that recognize only conscientious objection to all war and not selective conscientious objection to a particular war based on the just war criteria
  • moral and religious criteria of just war
