Church Matters Podcast: Episode 26: Broken Promise: A Conscientious Objector and his 60 Year-Old Secret
Guest: Gordon Toombs, CO during WWII

2009, 15 min
Gordon Toombs had the best intentions. He wanted to stay faithful to his belief that Jesus taught all his followers to be non-violent peacemakers. When the Canadian government conscripted him for World War in 1941, they promised he could serve as a medic by declaring himself a conscientious objector (CO). That promise was broken. Gordon felt he had betrayed his deeply held beliefs – and kept his failed CO declaration a secret for 60 years. This is his story.
