Who would Jesus shoot?
Imagine a crazed gunman with a semi automatic walks in to your workplace and declares anyone who isn’t a Christian is going to die. He turns around to you and asks your religion. What would you say? Most of us wouldn’t hesitate to lie, but for some folks, that’s the worst thing you could do.
Derik Bonestroo decided on Thursday that he was going to purge the Eldora ski resort of non Christians, and when he walked up to Brian Mahon with a semiautomatic pistol, Mahon answered he was a Catholic, and was immediately shot in both the head and chest.
Now I don’t want to criticize Brian for standing up for his belief, but I have to wonder if it was worth it. Surely even your God would understand your reasons for lying. It’s not even that big a lie! This psycho Derik was obviously looking for a target, and in those cases, it’s best not to give him one. There is no reason to throw your life away for the sake of your religion. If that crazed gunmen had asked me, I would have been the first to sing praises in Jesus’ name. I don’t fucking want to die, and my atheist pride isn’t something I’ll die over.
