Amidst the calls for violence, consider this:
"You have heard that it was said,‘Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.’ But I tell you, Do not resist an evil person. If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also. "(Matthew)
And before reacting by saying this suggests we should all submit and be meek, pardon me ... but your ignorance is showing ... learn more - because that is NOT the point at all. In researching the point, I found this well-stated essay: http://www.publicchristian.com/index.php...
Particularly enjoy the details in discussing the 4th point.
'An analogous sentiment is spoken by Socrates in his conversation with Crito in 399 BC before his execution in Athens.“One should never do wrong in return, nor mistreat any man, no matter how one has been mistreated by him." '
The point is non-violent disobedience. Violence is never the answer. Guns are violence.
The violent response results in the outcome spoken by Gandhi,“An eye for an eye, and we all go blind.”
With all thy getting, get understanding.
