I’m not going to make excuses for not touching the blog for the last couple of weeks, but if (a)you’re interested in seeing what I’ve been working on — research/writing-wise — and (b) if you find the nexus of ethics and nuclear strategy interesting, please do check out the conversation that’s been happening over at First Thoughts over the last number of days. 

Joe Carter of Evangelical Outpost fame (presently the web editor at First Things and the co-author of How to Argue Like Jesus) graciously allowed me to guest-post on Evangelicals, Nuclear Abolitionism and the Two Futures Project.  Joe followed up himself with a post on jus en bello and nuclear weapons and, this morning, Tyler Wigg-Stevenson–the founder and director of the Two Futures Project–posted his own well-argued rejoinder

As you’ll see from my initial post, I don’t agree with many of Wigg-Stevenson positions, but it’s been an all-around gentle and civil conversation and I’ve found Wigg-Stevenson to be an absolutely delightful and careful interlocutor.  I invite all Withered Grass readers to go to the Two Futures Project, read the material closely, and carefully think through what Wigg-Stevenson has to say.
