Ted Cruz: Killing Our Enemies Doesn’t Contradict The Christian Faith

Every once in a while, I’ll come across a snaggletoothed liberal who tries to say that killing those who are first trying to kill us is “unChristian-like.”

Apparently, self-defense is anti-Jesus. Like, Jesus totally wants you hiding under a desk and crying if someone tries to murder you.
Not true.

We have every right to defend ourselves. Ted Cruz recently explained how his plan to “carpet bomb” ISIS is completely consistent with his Christian faith.

“Let’s be clear, the Bible says, ‘Thou shalt not murder,’ which is different from ‘Thou shalt not kill,'” Cruz told “The Hard Line” host Ed Berliner. “And defending yourself is an obligation of any president. It is not murder.”

Liberals use the words “kill” and “murder” interchangeably, but there’s a stark difference. Murder is, in some form, pre-meditated and has no sound justification. If you look at the original Hebrew language, you can see the difference in the words they use.

Killing out of self-defense isn’t murder. Accidental manslaughter isn’t murder.

“When you have the face of evil that has declared war…then it is the essence of duty to defend your nation, to defend the innocent,” Cruz added. “When it comes to jihadists, they have declared war on us, and that’s what President Obama and Hillary Clinton refuse to acknowledge.”

Cruz is right. Carpet bombing ISIS into oblivion isn’t murder. It’s war and completely justified. But nice try, libs.
