Remember the White Rose


The White Rose (German: die Weiße Rose) was a non-violent, intellectual resistance group in Nazi Germany led by a group of students and a professor at the University of Munich. The group conducted an anonymous leaflet and graffiti campaign which called for active opposition against the Nazi regime. Their activities started in Munich in June 1942, and ended with the arrest of the core group by the Gestapo in February 1943. They, as well as other members and supporters of the group who carried on distributing the pamphlets, faced unjust trials by the Nazi People’s Court (Volksgerichtshof), and many were sentenced to death or imprisonment.

      1. It depends on the flexibility of belief system and a person’s willingness to accept contradiction.

        I’m Catholic but think that God wants us to turn faith into action.

        Another Catholic may believe that faith is best expressed at daily mass.

        The question is not so much what you believe but how you believe it.

        Picketing the funerals of young men killed in battle is not an act of faith and I don’t think the question is relative.

        No one has the right to inflict themselves on other people.

        No one has the right to use faith as an excuse them to make people suffer.

        The Islamic Fundamentalists who kidnap and decapitate people are
        acting on dogma, not reason.

        They don’t represent God or Islam and
        Fred Phelps doesn’t represent Christ and Christianity.

        One can use a prescribed set of rituals for daily life and have an open mind.

        So, if a person is persistent in the evolution of his beliefs than it is possible to evolve a flexible understanding of dogma and use it as a guide.
