What Would Jesus Bomb?

According to Justin Carl Moose, 26, of Concord, NC, Jesus would bomb Planned Parenthood.

Moose is a self-described "extremist, radical" and the "Christian counterpart of Osama bin Laden." The FBI arrested Moose in Concord this past Tuesday in what is described as "a sting operation." Apparently, he had been posting tips on bomb-making and threats against Planned Parenthood on his Facebook page and had "collaborated last week with a confidential informant to plan the bombing of an abortion clinic in North Carolina."

From the Charlotte Observer:
According to the FBI affidavit, Moose advocated violence for a variety of causes and communicated with like-minded abortion opponents online.

Moose's Facebook page, which was still public Thursday [but NOT today, far as we can find], contained posts expressing anger at abortion doctors, President Barack Obama's health care plan, and plans to build a mosque near ground zero in New York City. It also included expressions of support for those who have killed abortion providers.

"Whatever you may think about me, you're probably right," he wrote on his Facebook page, according to the affidavit.

"Extremist, Radical, Fundamentalist...? Yep! Terrorist...? Well, I prefer the term 'freedom Fighter.' " ...

"There are few problems in life that can't be solved with the proper application of high explosives :)" Moose wrote two months [after President Obama's health care plan was approved in March]....

There's a lot more, including the NewChannel36 live footage showing the Tea Party "Don't Tread on Me" flag flying over Moose's home.

Fox News must be so proud. Sarah Palin and Newt Gingrich too.

With these guys it's "all about the children"--as long as the children aren't born yet. After the children are born, then these guys work like crazy to make sure the children don't get any access to childcare or healthcare. Neat trick.

Jesus said "love thy neighbor as thyself".
"But I tell you, Do not resist an evil person. If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also."

I can't find any qualifiers that permit killing people. Am I missing something?

Brushfire, you certainly are. Please explain Jesus throwing the moneychangers from the temple and telling his disciples to sell their garments in order to get the money to buy a sword if they did not have one.

Anon - Jesus threw the greedy capitalists from the temple. He did not murder them. When He told his followers to buy swords, was it for self defense or did he then instruct them to go on a murderous rampage?
Didn't He say that blessed are the meek, the merciful, the peacemakers? Didn't He say that all who live by the sword shall die by the sword? Didn't He say to love your enemies and do good to those who hate you?
How does that jibe with the gun-toting, reloading, bomb-throwing rhetoric of the right-wing "Christians"?

Brushfire, so you think its wrong for people to defend themselves when they are threatened and attacked, even by the authorities and their enforcement arms?

Just who is going on murderous rampages?

" Please explain Jesus throwing the moneychangers from the temple and telling his disciples to sell their garments in order to get the money to buy a sword if they did not have one."

Please explain how your brand of Christianity is so much more peaceful and good than non Christian, or most other religions of the world?

We all see what being a Republican ,Christian, has meant to your personal happiness.

Does McDonalds still sell Happy Meals? Consider one of those for lunch tomorrow Johnny.

Why would others choose your world view, religion or politics to be a happy person you?

Just how do you feel threatened by an authority? Does Mom punish you a bit too much?

Maybe you can just clean your room and be on time for dinner.

Anon- It was not I who said all those peacenik things. I was merely quoting. Go argue with Jesus.

Brushfire, you never answered the question of Jesus telling his disciples to buy swords. Please do so.

Anon - I answered the moneychangers question. Now it's your turn to explain about all the peace-keeping and love your enemies quotes. (5 separate references)
