Trial of the Catonsville Nine, The - 1972 Movie Quotes

Posted ByQuote
  Our apologies, good friends, for the fracture of good order, the burning of paper instead of children, the angering of orderlies in the front parlor of the charnel house. We could not, so help us God, do otherwise, for we are sick at heart. Our hearts give us no rest for thinking of the land of burning children, and for thinking of that other child of whom the poet Luke speaks, “This child is set for the fall and rise of many in Israel, a sign that is spoken against.” Small consolation. A child born to make trouble, and to die for it. The first Jew, not the last, to be subject to a definitive solution. And so we stretch out our hands to our brothers throughout the world, we who are priests to our fellow priests, all of us who act against the law, turn to the poor of the world, to the Vietnamese, to the victims, to the soldiers who kill and die for the wrong reasons, for no reason at all, because they were so ordered by the authorities of that public order which is, in effect, a massive, institutionalized disorder. We say killing is disorder. Life and gentleness and community and unselfishness is the only order we recognize, and for the sake of that order we risk our liberty, our good name. The time is past when good men can remain silent, when obedience can segregate men from public risk, when the poor can die without defense. How many, indeed, must die before our voices are heard? How many must be tortured, dislocated, starved, maddened? How long must the world’s resources be raped in the service of legalized murder? When? At what point will you say no to this war? We have chosen to say, with the gift of our liberty, if necessary our lives, the violence stops here. The death stops here. The suppression of truth stops here. This war, stops here. Redeem the times. The times are inexpressibly evil, and yet the times are inexhaustibly good. Solaced by t (full quote)
