In a YouTube video posted today, Harlem Pastor James David Manning says Christians need to not only be willing to die for what they believe, they need to be willing to kill as well.
Who should Christians be willing to kill? Manning lists as his enemies President Obama and “sodomites.”
From the video:
“If we’re going to win this battle for the lord God almighty, two things are going to have to happen in terms of our battle strategies. We’ve got to be willing to die for what we believe. If you believe the word of God, then there is no way you will not die willingly for the cause of Christ.
“But the other thing – if we’re gonna win this battle against Obama, the Tea Party, the long-leggy mack daddy, the quasi-Muslim freak, the vice president of both death and hell, against the sodomites, against racism – we’re gonna have to be willing to kill as well.
“You can try to arrest me, saying that I’m inciting murderous behavior. Go ahead and try. See if that will stand up in court.
“Let me tell you something, if you’re not willing to kill for what you believe, if you’re not will to kill those that are diametrically opposed in great evil against you believe, then you’re not worthy of his service.
“You gotta be willing to kill. You gotta be willing to die.”
Reuters is reporting that another American journalist, Steven Sotloff, may have been beheaded by ISIL:
The Islamic State released a video purporting to show the beheading of American hostage Steven Sotloff, a monitoring service said on Tuesday, as the militant group raised the stakes in its confrontation with Washington over U.S. air strikes on its fighters in Iraq.
A masked figure in the video also issued a threat against a British hostage, a man the group named as David Haines, and warned governments to back off “this evil alliance of America against the Islamic State”, the SITE monitoring service said.
“I’m back, Obama, and I’m back because of your arrogant foreign policy towards the Islamic State, because of your insistence on continuing your bombings and … on Mosul Dam, despite our serious warnings,” the man said.
“So just as your missiles continue to strike our people, our knife will continue to strike the necks of your people.”
Several news outlets report that Sotloff’s family is aware of the video and grieving.
On August 19th, the same group posted a similar video showing the gruesome killing of American journalist James Foley.
For some reason, NBC Sports Network has been airing an NRA-sponsored hunting show called Under Wild Skies, on which gun-humping .
Above is a highlight reel from this week’s episode of NBC Sports Network’s Under Wild Skies. In it, NRA lobbyist Tony Makris shoots elephants in the face.
He is led into the Botswana wilderness by a hunting guide. They hide behind a bush, about 20 feet away from an unsuspecting elephant. Makris shoots at the elephant twice, but does not kill it. The elephant, terrified, runs away. Makris catches up to the elephant and shoots it again, killing it. Everyone goes home to drink champagne.
Hunting elephants is currently legal in Botswana, but sharp declines in wildlife populations due to trophy hunting have led to an all-out ban that won’t go into effect until 2014.
