Jesus Hated War -- Why Do Christians Love It So Much? By Gary G. Kohls
"I cringed knowing that, according to the biblical Jesus, God is never on the side of the victors. The God of love that Jesus revealed was on the side of the victims, the oppressed, the starving, the sick, the naked, the meek who were victimized by unjust power.
Jesus’s God would not be on the side of the war-makers, but on the side of the peacemakers, the compassionate and long-suffering ones who work to prevent killing and to relieve the suffering of the victims of war.
Virtually all Christian evangelical, conservative and many mainstream church leaders and their congregations were active supporters of the Bush wars."
Makes you wonder, doesn't it?
The more I think about it the more I think that Thomas Paine had it right in the Age of Reason where he says he believes in God, but not organized religion. I've never seen a better argument about religion, and observing current events only adds weight to his arguments.
