This LINK is to a inspirational and touching interview with Fr. George Zabelka, the chaplain to the crews that dropped the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. This LINK is to a short video from the documentary about Fr. Zabelka, The Reluctant Prophet, who several years before his death, had a faith conversion and publicly repented for his part in the bombings, which was the greatest evil this nation has thus far committed, and began speaking out against war in general, nuclear weapons in particular, promoting gospel nonviolence as a way of life. This LINK is to the excellent full documentary–The Reluctant Prophet–about Fr. George Zabelka, the history of U.S. nuclearism, and the resistance against nuclear weapons.
