And therefore, they have made a break from the democratic rule of constitutional processes of control and ratification of the international treaties on behalf of the national parliaments.
Yet, with a transformed NATO, de facto if not in a legal manner, into a new type of organisation, servile to the missions of the USA, and in that way, cobelligerent, Italy, by participating in a NATO mission in a country where the USA is in war, has automatically become participant in a war.
Even when our commanders chose profiles out of the limelight, operative zones that are relatively tranquil and rules of engagement that are more restrictive than the other contingents of the NATO, our soldiers are nevertheless considered to be an extension of the apparatus of offensive war and for this they are exposed to enemy attacks.

 SHOULD CHRISTIANS BE COBELLIGERENTS IN ECUMENICAL COALITIONS?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
Second, the goal of cobelligerent cultural reform is not necessarily to change the hearts of individuals (whether saved or lost), but to restrain their evil acts.
For example, if a critic of evangelical cobelligerence had a two-year-old daughter who stumbled into a swimming pool and needed immediate medical attention, he would gladly work with Catholic paramedics to save her life.
Finally, critics of cobelligerence need to substantiate their claim that evangelicals are spending too much time on cultural reform.

 Cobelligerency without Belligerency: A Discernment Exercise   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
Abortion, euthanasia, physician-assisted suicide, pop culture, caring for the earth, penal and judicial reform, religious freedom, welfare and tax reform, the family, divorce, and education are simply a few of the concerns over which believers have joined forces for the common good.
When we work together as cobelligerents, we set aside our differences for a time, not because they are insignificant, but because they are irrelevant to the particular struggle for justice with which we happen to be engaged.
I am using it as Francis Schaeffer did: A cobelligerent is a person with whom I do not agree on all sorts of vital issues, but who, for whatever reasons of their own, is on the same side in a fight for some specific issue of public justice, such as abortion or physician-assisted suicide.

We can learn from them; investigating their claims can help us think through and clarify our own position; we are cobelligerents with them in our postmodern culture; and when we speak of their beliefs and practices, Christian charity demands we do so with accuracy.
The notion of cobelligerency is rooted in the biblical teaching concerning common grace: in a fallen world, truth and justice are not limited only to the people of God.
If a biblical case study for cobelligerency is desired, consider Joseph working with the Egyptians to stave off famine (Genesis 41), or Daniel working in King Nebuchadnezzar’s court (Daniel 2).

 FT February 2003: The Hemlock and the Cross   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
In early July 1759, three friends met at an inn called the Windmill outside the German city of Königsberg, for what might be called an “evangelistic” or “counseling” session.
Intellectuals all, the three friends had earlier been cobelligerents in the cause of rationalism and the Enlightenment, but one had gone apostate.
He had become a Christian of the most fervent and unenlightened sort, and his friends were intent on restoring him to the true fold, Enlightenment, and the good shepherd, Reason.

 History   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
But in another sense it was divisive because it defined itself over against “modernists” or “liberals,” those who downplayed supernaturalism, and thus they stood against people they found within their own denominations.
Fundamentalists and modernists struggled against one another within Protestant denominations, and joined forces with their respective cobelligerents in other denominations.
The net effect of all this was a thorough destabilization of the traditional sectarian categories by which American Protestantism had been organized.

 Blood on the Hills: The Canadian Army in the Korean War by Galen Roger Perras   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
He discusses the Canadian brigade's two major relationships, first with the Commonwealth division to which the unit was attached for much of the war, and second with higher American command.
But there is precious little material cited from American, British, or Australian sources that reveal how those nations' militaries judged their Canadian cobelligerents.
Lastly, while Bercuson makes several references to how the catastrophic loss of nearly two thousand Canadian soldiers at Hong Kong in December 1941 served as a cautionary warning that shaped the Korean contribution, he makes no mention of the despatch of five thousand Canadian troops to the Aleutian island of Kiska in August 1943.

 Every Arrow Needs a Bow: William Wilberforce
James Dobson, for example, has seriously considered leaving the Republican party and taking his four million listeners with him.
Despite the church's vast investments in the political arena, Dobson and his cobelligerents say, our culture continues to spiral downward.
Meanwhile, activists on the religious Left are dismayed that increased access to the White House kaffeeklatsch has brought few concrete results for their own agenda.

Indeed, he is so pessimistic about the Lutheran situation—the context in which I framed my argument—as to see it as confirmation of "Neuhaus’ Law" that "where orthodoxy is optional, orthodoxy will sooner or later be proscribed."
I have no fundamental quarrel with Pastor Klein—we are brothers in the faith and cobelligerents in intra-Lutheran controversies—but we do have some differences as to Lutheran and Catholic realities and, perhaps, over what such realities suggest about the choices confronting those of us with evangelical catholic convictions.
It is weak on abortion (though there are recent welcome signs of sobriety on that issue) and it tolerates all too much theological foolishness, but it is not in its public doctrine an apostate body.

 Christian Liberty by Rex M. Rogers :: Book Reviews by Gary Gilley   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
Colson’s view of the Cultural Mandate has lead to a broad tolerance, within Christian circles, of even Fundamental doctrines such as Sola Fide.
If the church is mandated to transform and redeem culture, we will need a united front of cobelligerents drawn from every doctrinal stripe of believer.
In order to do this we must lay down our theological differences and join arms in the cultural wars.

Considering that the United States, acting in conjunction with its cobelligerents, entered into an Armistice with Germany on November 11, 1918, in order that a Treaty of Peace might be concluded;
Considering that the Treaty of Versailles was signed on June 28, 1919, and came into force according to the terms of its Article 440, but has not been ratified by the United States;

 Triablogue: Sean is for suckers
It would seem that a certain nullifidian weblog doesn’t hold Triablogue in the highest esteem.
So I guess that my cobelligerents and I will have to muddle through life without the approval of Sean and his fellow dubitantes over at http://gods4suckers.net/
But permit me to say that since I’m not a polytheist, I quite agree that gods are for suckers.

 The Partisan Movement in Postwar Lithuania - V. Stanley Vardys
According to this view, the war was not fought by two, but by three parties: Germany, the United States with Great Britain, and the Soviet Union.
The Atlantic powers and the Soviets were not really allies, it was maintained, but merely cobelligerents, accidentally thrown together in an incompatible coalition which would soon break up in disagreement over the postwar organization of the world.
The emerging conflict between the wartime partners was expected to explode into a new world war which the Soviets would lose, thus leaving Lithuania independent.

 SEP candidate for US Senate addresses Buffalo meeting Our campaign offers the only alternative to the profit system   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
The legislation takes the odious practices of the Bush administration that emerged through the exposures at Abu Ghraib and Guantánamo, as well as reports leaking out of other secret CIA prisons and torture chambers, and turns them into the law of the land.
Moreover, it expands the concept of “enemy combatants” explicitly to include US citizens as well as legal residents who are deemed to have “purposefully and materially supported hostilities against the United States or its cobelligerents.”
This definition is so broad that individuals who speak out against the government—or indeed against the government of Britain and Israel, which could be classified as cobelligerents—can be brought before a military tribunal and thrown into a dungeon without any recourse to the civilian courts.

 Strange BaptistFire » Evangelism
If you follow this link, it will take you to an extensive review which I’ve written of the title in question.
In addition to my modest contribution, Gene Bridges and Jason Engwer, my able cobelligerents at T-blog, have contribtued an excursus which is, alone, worth the price of the book–especially when you consider that the review (in ebook format) is free for the taking!
Wes Kenney shares that Dick Lincoln, pastor of Shandon Baptist Church, Columbia, South Carolina, was the first to preach last night at the SBC Pastor’s Conference.

Meanwhile, Urkraine's new parliamentary democracy hit a major bump in the road this week when Orange Revolution reformer, President Viktor Yushchenko, dissolved the country's cabinet this week amid allegations of corruption.
Yushchenko himself has yet to be accused of any corruption, and the situation may prove to be a case of cobelligerents failing to adhere together once the source of their antagonism—Ukraine's previous regime—is no more.
A new parliamentary election is scheduled for March.
