PeaceBang, after a fashion, makes me think in that oh-so-90s-way, “Who would Jesus assassinate?” Imagine the merchandise, down to the blood-red silicone wristbands.
No, wait, that can’t be right. He saith:
Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to it! How often have I desired to gather your children together as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, and you were not willing! (Luke 13: 34)
(Which begs another t-shirt/wristband/baseball cap slogan: “Jesus is chicken” or better yet for World Communion Sunday, “Jesus tastes like chicken” and I dare any public preacher to use that title!)
All of which is a humorous introduction to a certain reality: could Pat Robertson make Christians look any worse? I would like to slap the baptism right off of him, but failing that would like to join the throng is saying Christians don’t do assassination. Not that some haven’t, but they were wrong to do it. A pastor should know better, but perhaps he’s showing the world who his true master is.
