Onward Christian Soldiers, Part II pb

“Then they shall deliver you up unto tribulation, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all the nations for my name’s sake.” – Matt. 24:9

(Jun. 12, 2014) — The Polish Army, cavalry, bravely (?) charged the mechanized mobile armor (tanks) of the German Wehrmacht (Army) and were slaughtered. Well, one would expect as much. I’ve heard of the “cop-by-suicide” thing, but horses charging tanks is a bit much. Perhaps the equestrians were making a point, a “Don Quixote” moment: we choose this way to die because of, of what? What, really now, was accomplished? I would’ve made the riders leave their horses at home and charged the tanks riding imaginary horses, like in the movie “Monty Python and the Holy Grail.”

There is nothing at all shameful in a retreat. It is better to live another day in which to smite your enemy. But then there are all kinds of retreats, aren’t there? We have “the rout,” which is what everyone is most familiar with. Then there’s the “calculated withdrawal,” which is the safe way to protect the rear. There’s also the “sneaky retreat,” and that’s the most fun but the hardest to accomplish, because you have to convince the pursuing forces that you’re sincere in running away from the fight and not setting up a calculated, cold-blooded ambush in which to kill the enemy, the “Lawrence of Arabia” moment when the leader yells, “No prisoners!”

There are lots of advantages to being a Christian, and one of them is knowing that the only “examined” life ever lived was by Jesus, and everyone (including ourselves) falls short of living exactly in Jesus’s footsteps. I mean, we know we’re not perfect, just as we know that the people we meet are not perfect: we all err, or transgress, every day, some more than others, to be sure. The point is that at least we know we’re not perfect, yet we continue to strive to be a better person than we were yesterday, or last year. In a nutshell, the idea of being a Christian is to make it a better world for everyone.

Here’s a misconception of Christians: they’re pushovers. Not so. This Christian proposes that every church have 24-7 security backed by RPG’s, machine-gun pillboxes and armored vehicles patrolling the perimeter and ships out beyond the 200-mile limit.  The use of air power is justified and, therefore, authorized and approved down to satellite and drone targeting. Works for me, so how come we hear about Christians being murdered all over the world?

What, exactly now, are our troops doing in the Middle East? And don’t try and tell me about bringing democracy to the heathen savages. These savages (Muslims) think that being civilized is beheading anyone delivering polio vaccines to the children of their village or killing the doctors and nurses mending the cleft lips of children.

No, our troops are just wasting away, being the “targets of opportunity” so some young Muslim kid can make their kind of version of the American Indian counting coup. “Become a man: plant a roadside bomb and push the detonator as an American vehicle passes over!” Any takers? The line is infinite, just as the line is long for suicide missions to both men and women.

Meanwhile, rest assured that somewhere in the world a Christian was murdered in the time it took you to read this editorial, just because he or she was a Christian. Also believe that the retribution that will be wrought upon these murderers is the exact retribution brought upon the murderers of the four who died in Benghazi on September 11, 2012: NOTHING.

The righteous are slaughtered by savages as the savage in the White House preens his feathers and laughs at the stupid and gullible Americans. And when they come for us, what then? We haven’t lifted one finger to help the Christians in other parts of the world: what makes one think that they’ll lift a finger when it’s us getting killed in our own country?

[NOTE: I suggest that every Jew and Christian be armed, at home, and at the place of worship. Scout’s Rule #1: Be Prepared.]
