Who Would Jesus Assassinate?

That is the question posed by Marvin Olasky at World Magazine. I won't leave you in suspense: the answer is 'no one'. The Bible offers no warrant for political assassination.

Here's a portion:
Mr. Robertson's comments also made the day of some Islamic groups. Under the press release heading "PAT ROBERTSON’S FATWA," the Muslim American Society went on offense, screaming that "someone should remind the darling of the Christian Right about the Ten Commandments. About the one that says 'thou shall not kill.' If that had been a Muslim cleric talking about killing a head of state, you would have never heard the end of it."
Two things:
1) As a person who considers himself part of the Christian Right, I can say that he's no darling of mine.
2) We are not hearing the end of it any time soon because Robertson once ran for President as a Republican. Therefore he is the piƱata of the moment for Big Media who like to try to discredit any conservative based on the statements of any one of them.

When will it end? When Judge Roberts's confirmation hearings begin.
