US Evangelical Pastors Are the World’s #1 Warmongers – the Opposite of Christian Behavior
But in the eyes of the so-called Religious Right, ANY war a Republican president sends the U.S. military into is a just war—no matter how unjust the war really is. Evangelical Christian pastors are unabashed apologists for war. It is safe to say that a majority of conservative Christians have become rabid warmongers.
They cheer for war; they promote war; they glorify war; they worship those who wage war; and they enthusiastically vote for neocons like Lindsey Graham and John McCain because of their support for war.
For evangelical Christians to talk about the bloodthirstiness of Muslims is laughable. Islamist jihadists don’t hold a candle to the sheer numbers of innocent people who have been killed (and are daily being killed) by the American empire—with the enthusiastic endorsement of evangelicals. At the same time, conservative Christian pastors constantly trumpet more and more war, more and more killing.
These pastors would do well to familiarize themselves with the “Gospel of peace” (Romans 10:15; Ephesians 6:15) as proclaimed by the “Prince of Preachers,” Charles Haddon Spurgeon.
