Jude Reardon

It seems there was a kind of judgment upon Bishop Polk in the extraordinary way he was killed, cannon sniped from a half mile! That is what I thought when I came across it in Shelby Foote. Should men set apart with holy hands as instruments of Christ's peace, be such instrument of war? To me it seems not, if the life of General Polk is considered in the light of God's concluding censure against David, as a man of blood, not qualified to build His holy temple.
