Glenn Reynolds finds
"the statements made by Hauerwas in this article are so profoundly idiotic -- and worse yet for a philospher, incoherent and contradictory -- that I find it hard to believe that he said them as reported."

I read the article and I have no idea what Reynolds is talking about. There are a few incoherent statements, clearly decontextualized. But most of what Hauerwas is saying grows out of a pacifist philosophy clearly gotten from, yes, the New Testament. When you go around saying stuff like "love your enemies", and "turn the other cheek", there is a very real danger that someone might understand you.
