tutelary deity Anath. Dark goddess love is a form of feminist self-care. Wading in blood up to your knees is not a common woman experience--but wanting to? See also, Sekhmet, slaying and drankin'. )
I sometimes wonder if current God-botherers get the ethos of their creed from something obscure--or just make it the hell up. Because the ordained pastor of the pale Galilean who mumbled something about turning the other cheek and blessing those that curse you, has endorsed shoot-outs amongst the pews.
I am not 100% on my Christian theology, but I think that a shoot out in the pews of a Christian Church is more of a profanation against what Jesus was about than anything my liberal little heart might dream up.
But no, really. Imagine that one person there was well-heeled and prepared to dome a motherfucker. Is that a Christian gun? (But of course, it was Peter, who drew his sword, that was the Rock upon which the Church is supposedly formed.)
It depends upon politics, doesn't it? I recommend the film Agora to anyone with a Netflix account. But all in all, I don't think that holy places are great spots to wage carnal war. I actually think of Huckabee as more of a clown for this particular view.
I don't know how people less-schooled in ancient views of Christianity might see Huckabee's grasping about violence. I'd like to think they wouldn't be in favor.
