Bryan Fischer of the AFA thinks that awarding a Congressional Medal of Honor to a soldier who saved two comrades is "sissy".
From his AFA blog:
We have feminized the Medal of Honor…..This is not true, of course (see more here)
We now award it only for preventing casualties, not for inflicting them.
So the question is this: when are we going to start awarding the Medal of Honor once again for soldiers who kill people and break things so our families can sleep safely at night?
But remarkably Fischer goes on to say that is what Jesus would do.
Jesus’ act of self-sacrifice would ultimately have been meaningless - yes, meaningless - if he had not inflicted a mortal wound on the enemy while giving up his own life.You will know they are Christians by their blood-lust, apparently.
… our commanding general claimed the ultimate prize by defeating our unseen enemy and liberating an entire planet from his [sic] bondage.
We rightly honor those who give up their lives to save their comrades. It’s about time we started also honoring those who kill bad guys.
Andrew Sullivan points this out as an example of the "violence and aggression embedded in Christianism".
Meanwhile, let's finish on a high note. This is SSgt Salvatore Giunta, the first living recipient of the Medal of Honor since Vietnam. He knows something about honor, heroism and bravery, which is more than we can say for the pathetic Mr Fischer.
