  •  God, Guns & Guts made America...wow. (0+ / 0-)

    I guess all those immigrants given 40 acres to farm, a mule, plow, seed, and a chance to be a voting citizen (virtues of being a 'property owner') by those crazy liberal frontier socialist farmers state governments didn't matter.  

    And nothing is mentioned about the American Christian guts required to use barrels of whiskey and infected blankets to kill off entire tribes of Native American indians.

    Besides Jesus, nobody pays attention to the Apostle Paul's admonitions about Love (1 Cor. 13) or that the proper armament of Christians being the Shield of Faith, Breastplate of Righteousness, and Word of God as revealing 'sword' of truth--all 'spiritual weapons' capable of disrupting the most demonic elements making war of hate against God's kingdom of redeeming Love, and most definitely not the weapons wielded by mankind's armies.  

    Sure, I'll concede the sort of guts required to behave as the Apostle Paul (whose goal became solely resembling a loving, redeeming universal Christ) does not resemble the 'ideals' being held up as American Christian by the fundamentalists these days. The guts to love with redemptive and embracing power goes way beyond the guts to pull the trigger to annihilate another person.

    When life gives you wingnuts, make wingnut butter!
