"Go into any CofE church and find numerous memorials to those who died fighting, and to the glory of their sacrifice."
Sod all to do with the scriptures - the various churches are the greatest compromisers on their beliefs - always have been (want to attempt to assess how much the Catholic Church is worth - d'you not think Jesus would have his work cut out throwing out the money-changers of the Vatican?
Chritianity has based its existence on its claimed belief in the sanctity of human life - it's opposition is based on that tenet
Now you're telling us it was all a con (as if we didn't know already!!)
"Just about every Christian understands that the commandment is about murder not killing."
How do you know - do you know "just about every Christian.
The question of what the commandment means hasn't crossed their minds - even if they are even aware of it.
SDon't be daft Keith - you have trouble speaking for yourself , let alone "just about every Christian".
The instincts of just about every human being is probably that it is wrong to kill - our streets would be littered with dead bodies if that were not the case.
People don't kill each other because it is a human instinct not to - sod what either the church or the state says.
But if you want to continue to claim that your religion promotes killing - please feel free - suits me down to the ground.
