Hearing that failed vice presidential candidate and half-term Governor Sarah Palin said something crazy really never comes as much of a surprise to anyone anymore. However, her crazy talk may have just reached its pinnacle with her latest Facebook post.
Palin apparently thinks that Jesus — yes the Jesus from the Bible — also known as the Prince of Peace, would be a pro-gun advocate and fight for Americans’ Second Amendment rights.
Quite honestly, someone should really take her internet privileges away.
JESUS WOULD FIGHT FOR OUR SECOND AMENDMENT
Taking concrete defense measures (ie. arming ourselves) away from the good guys? Yeah… that… we don’t want that. As this hilarious parody says, “…it will really suck when only the bad guys have guns.”
Shoot, even the Lord said to take up arms and defend yourself and protect the innocent! We’re expected to take responsibility to defend ourselves and to protect the innocent, certainly not relying on fallible leaders to do it for us.
Don’t believe me? Look it up! Luke 22:36. I wrote about it in#sweetfreedom.
Proof, Jesus is a proponent of carrying!
Ooohh, I get it. She’s promoting her new book. She’s using guns and Jesus to promote her book to her fans who love everything guns and Jesus. Makes sense.
She also promoted this “satirical video” going after President Obama and liberal policies aimed at reducing gun violence. The video also advocates for shooting “bad guys.”
The collective maturity level of everything involved in her post might average out to the age of 11, maybe, more likely 6 or 7.
However, let’s just quickly return to the point she makes that “Jesus would fight for our Second Amendment.” Actually, no, being the peace beatnik that he was, he would’ve probably sought out ending violence and coming up with peaceful solutions. The Bible verse she quotes is in reference to a sword and completely out of context. For it is also in the Bible that Jesus says to turn the other cheek in Matthew 5:9, to love your enemies in Matthew 5:44, and it is also mentions in 1 Peter 3:9 that you do not repay evil with evil.
Palin is distorting the Bible, Jesus, and the Second Amendment to sell books. I wonder what Jesus would think of that?
