Holy crap

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.

I think that this is very interesting: I've just been reading Nietzsche's "The Genealogy of Morals," and his view is that there are basically two sorts of morality: noble morality and slave morality. The nobles (who, one gets the impression, Nietzsche thinks are the good guys) live independent lives, expressing themselves through violence are conquest. Goodness is strenght, power, and independence. The slaves must create their own conception good in reaction to the noble conception, based on their resentment of the nobles. They create a morality, like Christianity, with things like "the meek will inherit the Earth," with humility, abstinence, etc, constituting goodness. Doug Giles seems to be a Christian or sorts, but more attracted to noble morality than slave morality, so he tries to reinterpret Christianity as a noble religion, like the polytheistic, deliberately hawkish religions, of, say, Rome.

I'm not sure I really agree with Nietzsche's moral genealogy (really, I'm not sure why Nietzsche's so highly regarded: I don't see what he contributed to philosophy, moral skepticism and skepticism of religion hardly being cutting edge as of the late 19th century, and the "Will to Power" concept being so vague), but this is easily interpreted in that way.
