Didja Ever Wonder Why....

The Warrior has a fine conundrum.

And this leaves aside the fact that people who want to, say, own a gun or dive an SUV are roundly condemned by the same politically correct people who would never condemn anybody for homosexual acts.

Midst a longer essay about an MU campus group (!) sponsoring a wholly disingenuous movie about homosexuality.

My genetic disposition: Buy More Ammo.

I expect another condemnation from Foust shortly.

Foust seems a bit overwrought lately.

I agree. Far more energy, human or petro, has been expended in silly haruspicy of Leviticus than in the driving of SUVs.

But please, Dad29, tell us our favorite story again. Tell me again how your ammo fetish is in perfect alignment with the New Testament! What's your fave? Long and pointy, or short and thick? What's best for protection against Teh Gayzz and Those Who Are Nice to Them? The poor, the suffering, the imprisoned... but not the different?

Luke 22:36:

"And he said unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise a wallet; and he that hath none, let him sell his cloak, and buy a sword."

Oh! Baby! I love it when you quote-mine! Do it again!

Really, you can't find anything in the New Testament against a war-like stand?

Grim said...

Now, that depends on what you mean by 'a war-like stand.' I read the passage to hold that Jesus wanted us to be both able and equipped to defend ourselves against the harm of the world; but not to use the swords he bade us buy in his defense.

That doesn't license crusades, in the religious sense of the term; and indeed, of all wars they are the hardest to license. They are the sort most likely to permit harm to the innocent (as to which, see the book of Joshua).

But as for 'he who lives by the sword shall die by it,' gramercy; but I was going to die anyway. How better?
