Jesus' General has a letter from the Santa Clarita Baptist Church that argues that war is a good thing, because it makes people more religious and stuff.
Between this and World O'Crap's post about Doug Giles's portrayal of the Garden of Eden that has absolutely nothing to do with the Bible's description of it and the events that happened there, I have to wonder if so-called Christians even read the Bible.
Unlike most fundie Christians, I've read the Bible. And that guy they supposedly follow, Jesus, was big on the anti-violence and the anti-war thing. Just to check, I occasionally ask the woman I share an office with, who actually spends alot of time reading the actual Bible what Jesus felt about war, etc. She says he was against it and that killing is a sin, period. In fact, it's apparently better to submit to death than kill another human being. Who knew? You'd think that Jesus's noble acceptance of his own death had relevance of something.
My guess is that these politically motivated Christian fundamentalists just look at coloring books with pictures of popular Bible stories in them and assume that the Bible says what they want to hear.
