Floundering in a toxic brew of misguided patriotism and Jesusland hubris, Fox News personality Todd Starnes jumps the shark, and explains how his Republican Jesus would love American snipers for killing those “godless” Muslims.
Responding to a series of tweets critical of American snipers, the Fox News contributor and radio host argued that Jesus Christ would have loved Clint Eastwood’s latest movie, “American Sniper,” explaining how Jesus would tell “god-fearing, red-blooded” American snipers “well done” when they sent “godless” Muslims to the “lake of fire.”
Starnes is particularly upset with filmmaker Michael Moore, because Moore had the audacity to suggest that Jesus would not “hide on top of a roof and shoot people in the back.”
Starnes responded to Moore on Monday during his (Starnes’) “American Dispatch” online video series.
Well, I’m no theologian, but I suspect Jesus would tell that God-fearing, red-blooded American sniper, ‘Well done, thou good and faithful servant for dispatching another godless jihadist to the lake of fire.’
