Do you agree or disagree with the following statement. Why?
"If you’re a Christian and support killing your enemies and torture, you have to come up with a new name for yourself..Capping thine enemy is not exactly what Jesus would do…Martin Luther King gets to call himself a Christian because he actually practiced loving his enemies.Non-violence was kind of Jesus' trademark. Kind of his big thing. To not follow that part of it is like joining Greenpeace and hating whales. I mean, you know, there's interpreting and then there's just ignoring. It's ignoring if you're for torture. I am just saying logically that if you ignore the things that Jesus commanded you to do you are not a christian you are just a fan."Answer Question

In the 3 years that I've been a member of cafemom, I've seen more posts than I can count from people claiming to be "god fearing, gun wielding Christians". The thought of violence actually makes these people giddy with glee!

You can call yourself a Christian. I just don't happen to think you'd be a very good Christian.
