Example text

They see and define themselves as religious adherents of one faith and practice but also as human beings standing in communal relation with other valued human beings. They share faith with their own group but humanity with all other humans and life with all living creatures and organisms. And their spiritual psyche values all these relations and consequent identities. It is the multiplicity of healthy identities that prevents a level of overidentification with one group, be it an ethnic group or a religious community.

I do not deny that the status of some groups has often risen and fallen over time, without progress. What is crucial for purposes of conflict analysis and resolution is the dynamic of the internal process of change, when and how a group's status has improved, and how it has been justified. A few cautionary notes are in order before I conclude. There are two dangers to highlighting the importance of religion in conflict resolution: (1) that analysts and activists, in their enthusiasm about religion's positive contribution to conflict resolution, might overlook its violent potential,50 and (2) that analysts will overemphasize religion's role and not see it as part of a complex array of factors that generate violence and peacemaking.

4 The broader ethical literature is the key, I will argue, to serious and constructive approaches to conflict prevention, resolution, and reconciliation in religious societies. It will also provide, if investigated well, several instructive paradigms for general conflict resolution theory and practice. The third problem with just war literature is the lack of consciousness of the varieties of cultural contexts that form the basis of how people think about conflict, war, and peacemaking. There is a tendency to define war and peace in terms of specific religious criteria in only some faith traditions and almost exclusively in terms of biblically based religions.
