Who Would Jesus Bomb?

Reading this post on Marathon Pundit about a "peace rally" in Chicago the other day, I begin to wonder about some people's mental capacities.

According to the post, a song was being promoted with the lyrics, "Who would Jesus bomb? Yeah, who would Jesus kill?"

First of all, people who protest the current administration are usually the ones who denounce any kind of religious relationship between the public and private sectors. Bringing Jesus, therefore Christianity, into the equation is a poorly masked attempt to make Christians feel guilty if they support the war in Iraq. After all, one of Jesus' teachings to His followers was to "turn the other cheek."

Secondly, it's obvious that those who are blabbing this drivel really know nothing about the concept of Christ and who He is. (Note: I am not a scholar of the Bible; my comments here are based on my understanding of Christianity via my experience through my church.) Think about it:

Who is Jesus? Christians believe He is the Son of God. While He walked the Earth in a man's body over 2,000 years ago, as the son of God He was not flawed in the way that us mortal humans are. Because we are flawed, we are not without sin. We make mistakes in our earthly existence and turn to our religion for salvation in the hereafter. No matter how much we may strive, we will never truly be without sin. Being the Son of God, and having made the sacrifice He did for us, Jesus cannot be categorized in this way.

So, to ask to question, "Who would Jesus bomb?" makes no sense. It's an extremely cheap shot that has no merit whatsoever.

Now some of you may be asking, "What's the big deal?" And I'm not usually one to go preaching...my religious beliefs are mainly a private matter. However, when I hear of this sort of thing at a rally where people are shouting "F*ck Bush" and playing a song called "Bomb the White House," it's automatically suspect in my mind. (And saying you aren't "represented" by the crowd is no excuse; if that's true, what are you doing there in the first place?)

This is ridiculous. First of all, credit should be given to the band that wrote that song, Anti-Flag. The song is called "Welcome to 1984". If you didn't know that, well neither did I until I took two seconds and googled that one line. Second, most of the song is not about the war in Iraq. But that's beside the point. "Who would Jesus bomb?" is obviously intended as a rhetorical question,a sarcastic statement. Though I do not agree with the band, the band is trying to say that the war in Iraq and the general "democracizing" (made-up word) is partly or wholely a cover-up for the campaign to destroy "pagan" religions, especially Islam. Once again, I do not really believe that that is true, but you should not criticize Anti-Flag (great band by the way) for speaking their minds, especially if you are criticizing them for a message they did not intend to make.
