What do you think about peace and pacifism?

I do not want you to change your interpretation. But interpreatations are no facts. And it is a fact that Thomas Merton (1915-1968) was baptized Protestant and that he began (in the 1930’s) to be interested in Catholicism as an adult. Why should I not tell the facts or at least the facts at first? My Interpretation may follow, for example after Jerkey’s response.
