For A Preacher Man, Mike Huckabee Sure Likes Guns

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by aikoaiko (a host of the General Discussion forum).

I wonder what the Prince Of Peace would say about that...

4. Nor Did The Prince Of Peace Say To Venerate Them. I Suspect He Would Say They Are A Necessary Evil

11. I own many things but venerate none.

I doubt Jesus cared much about the tools - he understood it is people's thoughts and actions that mattered.

16. He Was Also Wise Enough To Know That People's Thoughts And Actions Mattered

He was also wise enough to know that people's thoughts and actions mattered more when they were packing.

7. The Old Testament God , Yes...The New Testament God, Not So Much...

Except for the Book of Revelation which was written during a time of Roman persecution.

9. that's the problem

Right wing Christians revere the Old Testament and the Book of Revelation. They kind of gloss over the rest. Hell, they pretty much skip over the rest.

18. Yes, and as the Roman soldiers approached, Jesus told Peter:

"Put it away."

In one of the gospels, Peter cuts off the ear of one of the men attempting to arrest Jesus. Jesus tells Peter to put away the sword, and heals the injured man.

Not exactly a rousing call for automatic weapons, 100-round magazines, and unlimited ammunition purchases...

20. That Is Because Peter Was Embarrassed For Denying He Knew Jesus Earlier

Exactly somehow "Jesus Christ-Big Game Hunter" doesn't have the ring of truth.

12. Huckabee is a despicable man. He plays God every chance he

gets. The Bible has been with us for a very long time and I feel certain there was no copyeditor at hand each time it was rewritten. For a very long time people, especially those who consider themselves Christian have interpreted it as they wish.

said we were all going to hell for voting Democratic anyway. So he can take his bullshit and shove it.

14. So Huckabee likes the modern day Beecher's Bibles? Why am I not surprised.

Sorry I couldn't resist. The original post made me think of this.
