"Christian" Lacking Christ's Teachings
 
Call to kill terrorists 'in the name of the Lord' sparks outcry
By Greg Warner

Associated Baptist Press

JACKSON, Tenn. (ABP)--If American troops kill Osama bin Laden, a Southern Baptist ethicist insists it should be "in the name of justice," not "in the name of the Lord" as televangelist Jerry Falwell suggests.

And a prominent Texas Baptist said using God's name as motivation for killing "defames Christianity."
In a televised debate on CNN, Falwell said President Bush should "blow them (the terrorists) all away in the name of the Lord."

Capturing and, if necessary, killing terrorists "is a morally legitimate exercise of military force," said David Gushee, professor of moral philosophy at Union University in Jackson, Tenn. "However, it must be recognized that in the terms of Christian moral thought, even justified wars are not to be treated as if they are being fought 'in the name of the Lord.'


I urge you to explore Theocracy Watch, a website that will give you background on the inroads that a radical Christian Right have made into our Democracy. The site is well documented and a complete eye opener.

Read Mr Falwell's quote above. Does he sound like a fellow who follows the words of Christ, the Prince of Peace, to you?

I'll be away for a few days, please send me your thoughts on the information you digest at Theocracy Watch, My email info is on the sidebar...
