Drone Attacks

Submitted by Troy, Aug 6, 2011 19:33

I agree with Mr. Barrow. Furthermore I would like to know if anyone could find a radical "right-wing Christian" sermon being preached at a Church in Norway someplace that recruited, funded and trained Breivik the same way that Mosques do in Middle Eastern Nations. The only example of extremist "Christianity" I have ever heard in America was that of President Obama's Church that he attended for many years. Jackson-Lee should pick up her phone and ask her confidant what "Christian" radicalism is all about.

Karl Marx has a lot to answer for with these relentless drone attacks.

 

Politics in the way of truth

What evidence is there that Breivik is a Christian? He has been so labeled, but at what point did he ever claim to be a Christian? His use of the name "Templers" in his manifesto is all that I am aware of as a relation to Christianity. It appears that he has been so declared a Christian due to his ancestry or possibly that he is simply not a Muslim. Breivik has been labeled a Christian in the same manner as was Jared Lee Loughner following his attack in Tucson neither is these terrorist are Christians.

Of course there are many dangerous extremists who may have as their focus any number of causes. Yet of all the groups and the various causes that terrorists have declared in the past fifty years none have posed the threat nor carried out attacks on the scale which the world faces from Islamic terrorism currently. The Representative's question however does pose a concern. Christians know well and expect such injustice. As Jesus said; "Remember the word that I said unto you, the servant is not greater than his Lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you." John 15, verse 20, acceptance of this is a part of faith. But, Lee's question harkens back to Nero. And like Nero it is a political statement and there is no truth in it. Her question is not directed towards the protection of our Nation nor is it an honest attempt to find answers. It is rather designed to minimize the dangers of Islamic terrorism and confuse the issue obscuring the nature of the current dangers.
