Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats. –H.L. Mencken
Lasserre and Dietrich Bonhoeffer met at Union Theological Seminary in 1930 and became friends.
Lasserre influenced Bonhoeffer’s thinking about how a Christian should be involved with the state and its wars, and later wrote War and the Gospel.
Do we believe in the Holy Catholic Church, the Communion of Saints, or do we believe in the eternal mission of France? One can’t be a Christian and a nationalist at the same time.
