Right or Wrong?

    How wrong or right the other guy is, is not a relevant factor in a discussion of fact or truth on any issue or subject. It is a standard by which the propagandist and deceiver changes the subject by personalizing it. This is why what Jesus said or did is not what matters, only the context of what was said or done, not the personality that carries the intellectual weight or value to other humans. The source is only of value in the possibility of garnering more intellectual insight from it or him/her.
  No human that ever lived, was or is free of flaw, and in truth of fact; we all have many more flaws than intellectual insights. This means if we concentrate on the person in order too make them celebrity, we have to look past or beyond many more flaws than insights, like turning a blind eye to them in order to idolize the individual, or act like they are perfection personified. No such person not even Jesus could ever past that test, he himself told us so in case you think I’m being sacrilegious. At least that is what was written, and all the evidence of this still looms high among the human condition in America today.
  Now; I used Jesus as an example because way to many Christians’ for way to long have insisted on extreme tolerance using his name, the implication being, that he would be passive and not fight back so we should do like wise.
  First off we don’t know enough about his life to make that assumption; secondly he was obviously not a coward which I think is what motivates passivity while one is being put upon. The combination of fear and its cousin cowardice is the real motivation of many. Cowering in fear is not what the religion of any preaches in America.
  The viciousness of aggressive defense is a righteous level to ascend to, if and when one resists subservience and Christian solders have faced it and answered the call, all through recorded history.


  "But what do we mean by the American Revolution? Do we mean the American war? The Revolution was effected before the war commenced. The Revolution was in the minds and hearts of the people; a change in their religious sentiments, of their duties and obligations... This radical change in the principles, opinions, sentiments, and affections of the people was the real American Revolution." --John Adams, letter to H. Niles, 13 February 1818
