  •  What about Psalms 55? (1+ / 0-)

    Let death take my enemies by surprise; let them go down alive to the grave

    seems a bit harsh. Especially if you have unmanned drones to do the job yourself . . .

    or what about when Jesus said:

    Matthew 10:34. "Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword.

    Or when He told George W. Bush to attack Iraq?

    Seems like some awfully mixed messages in there.

    Or, to look at it another way, Christianity lets one play either side of the issue.  And very conveniently, either pray for your enemies to be smitten or on occasion, do the smiting yourself (well actually not "on occasion" - Christians have been slaughtering others massively over the past two millenia)..

    So, from afar, it's rather amusing.  On second thought, maybe not THAT amusing - rather, maybe it's time for the whole system to go.
