Subject: RE: BS: Qu: Regarding Religion
It is the churches position that has changed.

No. The churches and Christians have always been clear that taking a life, although evil, may be justified.
Otherwise American Christians could never become police officers.
They do, in huge numbers.
Likewise serving in the armed forces.
Christians have had to think about such things.
Atheists do not.

It is well understood that it is murder that is always wrong.
It is no sin to use lethal force if needed to protect the innocent, and never has been.
