The killing in war requires setting people who don't want to die against other people who don't want to die.

Where's the greater purpose there?

I could have and, more to the point, should have elaborated there by saying: in the killing in war it is required by old men that young men who have no desire to die are set against other young men with no wish to die (as required by other old men) for the greater purpose..
This has been historically proven to be an immense and recurring expenditure of youth. rolleyes.gif

The killing in war requires setting people who don't want to die against other people who don't want to die.

Where's the greater purpose there?

When Christians, who started off by following Christ's teachings and turned the other cheek, now have recognised Christian Militia how contradictory can that be?
All through the ages followers of Christ have destroyed other cultures and their Gods for a greater purpose; even using their pagan celebrations and rituals, like Easter for eyample, to expidite those changes for a greater purpose.
The Muslims are sworn to do the same for their greater purpose.
No, Angel, of all the things that I personally wouldn't kill for, a greater purpose tops the list, how ever small that list might be tongue.gif

Also Tee ,I see that you have mentioned
Samson ,
Now in the old testament did not God direct his
followers in battle .

  Tee , I don't think murder is easy but is
not the killing in war for a greater purpose ,
although that subject is most debatable . smile.gif

Samson did it with the jawbone of an ass.

Killing has always been easy, Angel, it's only the methods and weapons which have improved through the ages; therein lies the science of killing : Some people even get one of these for their efforts ...

  Gun control?

No doubt there's many Americans watching what happened in Catalonia and polishing their guns saying 'that will never happen here'.

  By the same token Tee, it is not the vehicle that kills , it's the driver , mowing down people at large gatherings , that's not just the terrorist's game any longer it's simply anyone who has a mind to do that , it's so easy , No skill required,

  The joke is that those who profit the most from the 2nd. Amendment and the NRA's inflexible satand against any form of regulation, always claim that it isn't the firearm which kills but the shooter who pulls the trigger. wacko.gif

With that logic we can excuse the makers of the Hiroshima bomb by saying it was the air crew member who selected "Bombs Away" who did the killing.

  If it wasn't so serious, it would be laughable.
