“He is living in the dream castle of Christianity, which is so far up in the clouds that it does not even need a security system . . . Boyd describes these horrendous situations in such a way that never makes me wish that the Cherokee had had a couple thousand pacifists standing on the sidelines wringing their hands. And after carrying on this way, he has the bronzed nerve to describe this principled refusal to take up the cause of the widow and orphan as holiness, as keeping the kingdom pure. Proceeding serenely from the undisputed dictum that we ought not use our armies to rape and murder widows and orphans, he acts like he has thereby proven that we must not use our armies to defend them” (Empires of Dirt, p 101).
