WWJD

The anti-gunners thinks they’re bigger than Jesus. First the Coalition to Stop Gun Ownership compares themselves to Jesus. Then, the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Ownership says turn the other cheek means you should be willing to die instead of using the best means of self-defense.

    I’m not a particularly religious man, but here’s a countering passage for the Brady Campaign (Luke 22:36-38):

    “Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.

    37For I say unto you, that this that is written must yet be accomplished in me, And he was reckoned among the transgressors: for the things concerning me have an end.

    38And they said, Lord, behold, here are two swords. And he said unto them, It is enough.”

    -Seems pretty clear to me that Christ approved of arms for self-defense. I guess I’m just not a pure enough Christian for the Brady’s, though.

    Markie Marxist sez: “Of course private gun owners should turn the other cheek and give up their guns. It’ll make it easier to get them and their families into government re-education camps, were we can use the traditional Marxist method of dealing with political opposition – shooting them in the back of the head.”

    There is a difference between an insult (“if a man slaps you, turn the other cheek”), and a threat to life and limb.

    Some people have a hard time understanding that.

    What I find disgusting in this is that these liberals, who’re anti-religion, have the gall to attempt to use religion to further their anti-Constitution agenda.

  5. Joanna Says:

    Wasn’t there something about “If you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one”?

  6. Eagle 1 Says:

    If someone is OK with dying to make the moral (turn-the-other-cheek) point that any and all violence is bad, I’d say let ’em. It’s called thinning the herd.

    From the Catechism of the Catholic Church:

    2265 Legitimate defense can be not only a right but a grave duty for one who is responsible for the lives of others. The defense of the common good requires that an unjust aggressor be rendered unable to cause harm. For this reason, those who legitimately hold authority also have the right to use arms to repel aggressors against the civil community entrusted to their responsibility.

    Give the whole thing a read. You don’t have to agree with it, but it gives a rather plain explanation of how Christians (or at least, Catholics) view self-defense. Helmke has no idea what he’s talking about, but we already knew that.
