Christian Support for Killing Iraqis

The following is an excerpt of an article written by Jacob G. Hornberger by an XCJ reader. Hornberger raised the question about Christians uncritical acceptance of the Iraqi war.

Among the things about the Iraq War that I have never been able to understand is how American Christians have been able, in good conscience, to support this war. After all, no one can deny that neither Iraq nor the Iraqi people ever attacked the United States. That makes the United States the aggressor — the attacker — in this particular conflict. How could American Christians support the killing of Iraqis in such a war of aggression? How could they reconcile this with God’s sacred commandment, Thou shalt not murder.
