“I’ve been asked to speak about peace-building, and the process of peace-building, with particular emphasis on the ongoing efforts of the Trump administration and its allies to advance the cause of peace on the Korean peninsula, to prevent further nuclearization in North Korea, and to encourage the evolution of the Kim regime away from its rogue-state status.”

“As I told my brothers and sisters at the WCLC Inaugural Convocation last December, I will organize a Japan Clergy Leadership Conference (JCLC) in Japan that can contribute to the development of the WCLC. JCLC will be the keystone of reconciliation among religions.”

“We cannot express in words the horrors of wars and conflicts that have arisen repeatedly, creating religious, racial and ideological barriers throughout the 6,000 biblical years of history. In addition, because of human greed and selfishness, not only humanity but also the environment is suffering. The reality is that we can no longer be onlookers.”

“Peace is the ground upon which sustainable development is built. It is the atmosphere in which prosperity and other virtues like love and justice and equality can blossom. This is why everybody has to volunteer to promote peace, no matter our role and status in our societies. It is for this reason that I say that women are critical stakeholders in peacebuilding.”

“Women’s participation in decision making has, unfortunately, not been an area where progress has been notable. Equality in participation and decision-making in society at all levels, from grassroots to governmental positions, is important.”

“The world is too complicated to be predicted and judged in the markets by bureaucrats. Capitalism is good at doing the one thing socialism or political capitalism is really bad at doing – creating innovation, providing incentives, adjusting market conditions and bringing satisfaction to buyer and seller of commodities.”

“The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., in his famous Letter from the Birmingham Jail, wrote, 'How does one determine whether a law is just or unjust? A just law is a man-made code that squares with the moral law or the law of God. An unjust law is a code that is out of harmony with the moral law. To put it in the terms of St. Thomas Aquinas: An unjust law is a human law that is not rooted in eternal law and natural law.'”
