Here is another example of the perverse fusing of "Christianity" and militarism. Why does this have to keep happening? We seem to daily come up with new ways to offend Muslims. If we really wanted peace in the Middle East, we would be speaking with Muslims instead of pointing guns at them.
The irony about the connection between Jesus and guns is that Jesus never hurt anyone. As I recall, in the bible Jesus let Himself be hurt (crucified) for others.
The difference between the cultural Jesus and the biblical Jesus could not be clearer.
